Burgers Bourbon + Beer


On Wednesday, August 24, Los Angeles magazine hosted the inaugural competitive culinary experience, Burgers Bourbon + Beer, at The Victorian in Santa Monica. Nine restaurants were pitted against each other to create and serve the tastiest burger. Guests and Los Angeles magazine editors sampled, voted, and crowned The Cannibal and Malibu Café the Critic’s Choice and People’s Choice Best Burger, respectively.

Throughout the evening gourmet burger lovers sipped on Golden Road Brewing craft beers and a variety of premium bourbons including Bulleit® Bourbon, savored milkshakes from Salt & Straw, and danced to live music performed by Aaron Durr Band.
