Brooklyn Brew Shop’s Ultimate Beer Burger

Every element of this beer burger from The Brooklyn Brew Shop includes a nod to craft beer: stout burger patties, spent grain buns, hop mayo and beer, bacon and onion jam.


  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp pepper, freshly ground
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne
  • 1/4 cup stout or porter
  • 4 slices cheddar cheese
  • 1 tomato, thickly sliced
  • 4 leaves, bibb lettuce
  • 1 cup Beer, Bacon & Onion Jam
  • 1/2 cup Hop Mayo
  • 4 Spent Grain Burger Buns, toasted


  1. Simply-made or indulgently complicated, a good burger can come in a slew of mouth-watering iterations. But one thing's for sure: It's best served with a cold beer. We've taken our love for the classic combination of burgers and beer to the next level by stacking a stout-spiked patty with some of the most beer-filled and burger-ready recipes around.
  2. Sprinkle ground beef with salt, pepper and cayenne. Form into four loosely packed patties. Using your thumbs create a shallow well in the center of each patty.
  3. Heat your grill or skillet to medium-high. When hot place patties, indent-side up. Pour a couple spoonfuls of beer into each well. Cook for 4 to 5 minutes, flip, and cook for 3 minutes more. Add cheddar and let melt over heat, about 1 minute.
  4. Slather toasted Spent Grain Burger Buns with Hop Mayo, stack patty, tomato, lettuce and a generous amount of Beer, Bacon & Onion Jam (we like it to almost look like there are two patties). Enjoy.
