It's hard to decide which of the 37 burgers to try. But someone has to do it! The very first burger of this year's battle I decided to try with some friends is the Beer Fed Beef Burger from Remedy Brewing CompanyThe local brewery is well-known for its variety of craft beverages. But the chefs inside Remedy also know how to cook a mean burger. This burger from Remedy Brewing Company could be the one to beat during this year's Downtown Sioux Falls Burger Battle

According to a previous article from my co-worker Jeff Harkness, the Beer Fed Beef Burger is a "locally raised beef patty fed by Remedy Brewing spent grain, sundried tomato pesto aioli, tomato jam, burrata cheese, spicy balsamic, Queen Bee beer bread bun from Breadsmith. Served with a side of white cheddar mac and cheese."

Even though this was my first burger of the annual battle...this burger is a strong contender. The flavors were outstanding and pairing the mac and cheese with the burger was an added bonus. One suggestion for Remedy Brewing Company: I would toast the bun in the future to enhance the flavor of the beer bread. Either way, you can't go wrong with a beer and burger!

Don't forget! Residents can vote for their favorite burgers by Wednesday, January 31st on the DTSF Mobile Passport. Get to eating, Sioux Falls!
