In the heat of summer, many of us enjoy grilling outside. This week’s recipe comes from Paul Lewis using his go-to burger recipe. Paul enjoys making things from scratch, which is why this recipe comes with instructions for the bun, cheese and patty. The addition of a Lager, in this case Dovetail Brewery’s Helles Lager, brings out a depth of flavor that will take your burger to the next level.
When I moved from Washington, D.C. to Denver this past summer, my goal was to leave behind the hamster wheel that is political journalism. But in doing so, I was forced to make a sacrifice I hadn’t prepared for: leaving behind my favorite hamburger joint (Fuddruckers), which does not have a presence in Colorado.
To be sure, there are plenty of burger proprietors in the Mile High City, but I loathe having to choose between a customizable patty, decent sides and a flavorful beer list—you know, with options that offer more than merely an alternate source of hydration to water. With the addition of Cherry Cricket’s new location across from Coors Field, my problem appears to have been solved.
