Revealed: de Vere's Fans Dream Burgers

Here at de Vere's, we're famous for our 20-ounce pints, "Almost Famous" Irish Coffees, hospitality, and BURGERS. In October, we kicked off Burger Thursdays in conjunction with Burger Junkies, where we serve a different (and truly creative) burger--for only two Thursdays in a row. Fans say we keep outdoing ourselves...we say, when it comes to burgers, the sky's the limit. That's why we recently asked Facebook and Twitter fans to describe their dream burgers. Some were so tasty, we just had to share.

Like what you see? Leave a comment, and we may make some of these dream burgers a reality for an upcoming Burger Thursday!

"A burger infused with bits of cooked bacon, with bacon on top, with crispy onion strings, and Baconnaise on the bun." --Paul Cox

"Diced jalapenos, sauteed a bit then put in the burger mix. cream cheese in the middle of the burger. keep fried pickled jalapenos on top with pepper-jack, spicy mayo lettuce and tomato." --Mark Herman

"A 4 or 5 oz patty made up of a blend of ribeye, brisket, and short rib, with a crispy sear on the outside and mostly pink (and juicy) on the inside. Potato bun toasted in butter. Fully melted *real* American cheese, not those crappy singles wrapped in plastic. Thousand Island style sauce (feel free to update it as necessary), pickles, iceberg, farm fresh tomato. The beef should be the star. Don't get cute. Add a pint of Guinness and serve." --Tony Cervo

"Burger 1/3 lb, flame grilled if possible, just pink at center. Top with applewood bacon, blue cheese, grilled onions, on sliced ciabatta bun spread with garlic butter and toasted on flattop." --Bill Smith

"A Margherita Burger: Mozzarella di buffala, tomato and basil + burger." --PMQ Pizza Magazine

 

Here are some highlights from previous Burger Thursdays at de Vere's to whet your palate!

Burger Thursdays at de Vere’s Irish Pub in Sacramento, CA

by  on October 6, 2011 in Blog

Thursdays are about to be a bit more burgerly thanks to the new Burger Thursday’s going on at de Vere’s Irish Pub.

After the success of #sacburgermonth, one of the key takeaways was that Sacramento LOVES burgers! The customers (and even employees) at de Vere’s kept asking what the next featured burger would be,  so Henry came up with the idea of Burger Thursdays to bring some fun new hamburgers to the menu all throughout the year.

As a bonus, he asked your favorite burgerjunkie here to cosponsor the event to help get the word out.  I thought, heck, why wait for National Burger Month to celebrate the cheeseburger?

So every month starting with this October, 2 burgers will be featured. One crazy cheeseburger for the first 2 Thursdays and one hopped up hamburger for the second 2 Thursdays. $11.95 will get you a great burger and some fries every Thursday from here on out at de Vere’s.

Think of me as your sandwich scout, your cheeseburger channel, if you will.

I will guide you through the amazing featured burgers each month right here on this blog and onTwitter @burgerjunkies (look for the #burgerthursdays hashtag). I’ll even drop a mouthwatering Facebook post or two in there along the way.

The regular burger at de Vere’s is definitely good. But when the let the chef loose and start coming up with fun, featured burger creations, their burger game gets elevated to a whole new level.

Right out of the gate, Wes, the chef at de Vere’s brought the heat with this buffalo wing inspired creation that we finally dubbed, the “Buffalo Crunch” burger. I’ll let Wes explain it in this video:

http://youtu.be/aV56tiUJK78

 

You heard correctly:   scratch made buffalo wing hot sauce, a bleu cheese dressing, house made potato chips (you will SERIOUSLY appreciate the CRUNCH), topped with tomato and lettuce on a pretzel bun.

It looks a little something like this (before you dive in):

If you were to drop the top like a 64′ Impala, it would look something like so:

Guess what today is? Thursday. And if you’re reading this on any other day than Thursday, start your countdown, because you’re gonna want to make de Vere’s Irish Pub your new weekly Thursday tradition.

Tip:   Splurge a little while you’re there and ask the server for their amazing curry ketchup to go with your fries.  It may set you back an extra 75 cents, but it’s well worth it. Be sure to tell them the Burger Junkie sent ya :)

Burgely Yours,

Rodney

PS. Be sure to enter the Burger Thursdays Photo Contest on the de Vere’s Facebook page. That $75 gift card first prize can buy a lot of burgers!

Sacramento Burger Month at de Vere's Pub

Stadium Burger at de Vere’s Irish Pub –

Week 3 #sacburgermonth

Stadium Burger at de Vere's Irish Pub

Week 3: Sunday May 15 – Saturday May 21

Share this burger with your friends!

Local sports fans, this one is for you! This double ground beef patty is stuffed with 1.5 ounces of sharp cheddar cheese, coated with whole grain mustard, and smothered with a house made relish containing delicious peppadews. The chef’s searched far and wide for the perfect soft pretzel bun to compliment this beautiful burger creation.

Henry personally selected an organic wheat beer that goes perfectly with the pickled peppered flavors that top this burger. Mothership Wit from New Belgium Brewery is brewed with wheat and barley malt, as well as coriander and orange peel spicing resulting in a balance of citrus and sour flavors held in suspension by a bright burst of carbonation.

This premium burger/beer pairing is available for a limited time for $15 only at de Vere’s Irish Pub in Sacramento! Ask your server for the Sac Burger Month special!

This Burger has also been nominated in The ESPN "Fanwich" Contest and we need your votes! To Vote click here!

Week 1: Sunday May 1 – Saturday May 7

The Tostada Burger

Served on a lightly toasted, locally baked bun from The Grateful Bread, this freshly double ground beef burger is topped with a crispy tostada and corn pico de gallo salsa con queso. The burger itself sits on another layer of the house made salsa, a nice red tomato slice and another tostada layer to give it a great crunch. For an added kick, the buns are lightly spread with a made-from-scratch Serrano chili mayonnaise.

This burger is paired with a classic Corona beer during Cinco de Mayo week where de Vere’s will be celebrating the Batallón de San Patricio (aka Drinko de Mayo)

All About Sacramento Burger Month at de Vere's Pub! (Part One)

Sac Burger Month (or  hashtag #sacburgermonth on Twitter) is a joint effort between de Vere’s Irish Pub in Since May is officially National Hamburger Month, we thought it would be great to promote burger awareness here in our beautiful city of Sacramento.

Each week in May, the fine chefs at de Vere’s Irish Pub will be showcasing a unique featured burger masterpiece that will only be available for that week only.

Here’s the Burger Breakdown:

Week 1: Sunday May 1 – Saturday May 7

The Firestone Burger

This juicy cheeseburger is cooked in a red wine, shallots, and balsamic vinegar based sauce that gives it a powerful sweet and tangy flavor.  The double ground smoked beef patty is infused with smoked pork and topped with bacon, smoked cheddar goat cheese and fried onions. This flavorful burger is served on a lightly toasted, locally sourced, freshly baked bun.

We paired this burger with an Abbey ale from New Belgium Brewery out of Colorado. The chocolatey undertones allow this beer to hold its own with the smokiness of the Firestone Burger.
