Honest Burgers and other brands join forces for Burger Fest

11 March 2014 by

A host of popular burger brands are to join forces to present Burger Fest, a London street food festival dedicated to the burger, next weekend.

Honest Burger, Street Kitchen, Burger Craft, Wild Game Co. and Mother Flipper will bring their burger creations to Hackney Down Studios, in east London, on 15 March, for a celebration of the food trend.

The festival has been created by London city guide and blog TwentySomethingLondon, which reportedly received over 200 responses to its question of which burger brands should be included.

The burgers will be available in half-burger portions, to allow people to try several kinds, and there will also be sweet burger options, including a bacon and maple syrup burger cupcake, and a vanilla cookie fries dessert from Cupcakes and Shhht.

Punters arriving before 5.30pm will also get a free bottle of BrewDog beer, thanks to a recent collaboration between Honest Burger and the Aberdeen-based, now-UK-wide craft beer company.

There will also be DJ sets providing music, and sofas in a "living room" space, while a code listed on the blog also entitles visitors to 50% off their cab ride home if they travel with cab company Uber.

Tickets cost £30 on first release, available here, good for five half-burgers plus dessert.

The festival is capitalising on the still-popular burger craze that swept the capital last year.

One of the most well-known companies taking part, Honest Burgers, has five sites across London, including in Soho, Camden and Brixton. It recently announced a collaboration with craft beer company BrewDog, in which it created a "#BrewBurger", featuring beer-candied bacon, beer-fried onions, and a beer-based BBQ sauce.
