Burgers Bourbon + Beer Fest Flips to a Drive-Up Burger Crawl

Three days of off-menu burgers, custom cocktails, and more–right to your car

For many of us, it’s been months since we’ve gotten together for some burgers and drinks with friends. That’s why Los Angeles has put together a socially distanced edition of our annual Burgers Bourbon + Beer event, so we can all enjoy some food and drink together, while staying safely apart.

Instead of a crowd mingling in one room or outdoor space together, this year’s BB+B will find participants driving up at three locations to pick up burger and cocktail kits to enjoy at home, outside, or wherever you (safely and legally) decide. The burgers are custom, off-menu creations whipped up just for us; each cocktail kit includes spirits from Maker’s Mark, Knob Creek, or Jim Beam, along with a special gift pack from our sponsors.

And, best of all, everyone will be doing the crawl over the same three days, enjoying the same menu, meaning it’s a little way to share an experience with those you haven’t been able to dine with in person in a long time.

This year’s participating restaurants offered an advanced look at what they’re cooking up. Warning: do not read this if you’re hungry. And, yes, tickets are still available.
