Sure, fine wine and gourmet cheese go famously well together – but nothing can top a truly delicious beer and burger pairing. There’s just something special about the combination of an ice-cold brew and a juicy burger loaded with your favorite toppings, especially when you’re at American Social.
Here, the burgers are a cut above what you’d find at your usual neighborhood sports bar, and our selection of beer rivals that of any of the top breweries in Florida. The American Social team is in the business of serving up first-class food alongside a great dining experience, so you could say that we know exactly what it takes to put together a winning combination of burger and brew.
Best Burger & Beer Pairings at American Social
Here are our top picks for the best burger and beer pairings at our sports bars in South Florida – but don’t blame us if you find yourself with a serious cheeseburger craving once you’re done reading!
The AmSo Burger + a Cigar City Jai Alai IPA
Featuring a half-pound all-beef blend topped with American cheese, lettuce, tomato, onion, and our secret AmSo sauce, the AmSo Burger is for the true traditionalist at heart. The combination of flavors is intense, which makes it an ideal match for a citrusy India Pale Ale like the Cigar City Jai Alai IPA.
The Beyond Burger + a Blue Moon Belgian White
Beef devotees might argue that a plant based burger has no place on a list of the best burgers around, but we beg to differ. The Beyond Meat patty is so close to the taste of authentic beef, capturing all the fantastic fatty flavor you’d expect from meat. We highly recommend pairing it with the Blue Moon Belgian White, a soft and fruity beer that’s wonderfully versatile and refreshing.
The Horseradish Cheddar Burger + a Kentucky Bourbon Barrel Ale
The perfectly aged cheddar and horseradish cheddar sauce is undoubtedly the star of this show, but the crisp potato stix, pickled peppers, and smashed patties aren’t far behind. All of the rich cheesiness and bite of the horseradish calls for a robust, smooth beer like the Kentucky Bourbon Barrel Ale.
The Social Smash Burger + an Angry Orchard Crisp Apple Cider
Two ¼ lb smashed patties covered in our famous smash sauce, American cheese, pickles, and caramelized onions are waiting for you between two halves of a tasty pretzel bun when you order the Social Smash Burger. The smoky element added by the caramelized onions goes well with a complimentary sweet cider like the one from Angry Orchard.
The Mahi Sandwich + a Corona
While the Mahi sandwich isn’t technically a burger, this fresher-than-fresh fish will leave you just as satisfied. Choose between blackened or grilled, then take a big bite out of the savory sandwich topped with comeback sauce, lettuce, tomato, and onion. Of course, nothing pairs with a fish burger better than a classic Corona!
