Craft Brewery Introduces Burger Flavoured Beer

The hamburger obsession isn’t going anywhere, people. From the original meaty versions to newfangled vegetarian options, people just love burgers. 

Now you can have your burger and drink it, too.

Red Robin’s Grilled Pineapple golden ale (debuting at the Great American Beer Festival on Oct. 6 in Denver, Co.) isn’t just made to complement burgers…it’s actually meant to taste like them.

This particular beer (which contains no beef) is modeled after Red Robin’s Banzai Burger, which has a teriyaki glaze and grilled pineapple as a topping.

The restaurant chain’s beverage development manager Katie Burkle tells Mashable there were other burgers on the menu considered as flavor inspiration, but none measured up to the “unique flavor profile” of the Banzai.

The Golden Ale style brew is made in conjunction with New Belgium Brewing Company. Dave Glor, Innovation Brewer at New Belgium, said the brew is infused with molasses, pineapple and, “apple smoked malt to give the beer its umami and meaty-ness.”
