It’s “The Bash Daddy” burger from Bad Daddy’s Burger Bar in North Carolina. Are you thinking what we’re thinking: “How soon can we get this in our mouth?”
The answer: February 20, 2015
We invited Bad Daddy’s Burger Bar and founder Frank Scibelli to represent our ground beef by serving hamburgers at the 2015 South Beach Wine & Food Festival® Amstel Light Burger Bash presented by Schweid & Sons and hosted by Rachael Ray. Not only did he say yes but he has come up with, pardon the joke, one bad ass burger!!!
The Bash Daddy will consist of a proprietary blend patty made from short rib, brisket and Schweid & Sons ground beef topped with Raclette and Comte Cheese, Amstel Light & Bacon Braised Caramelized Onions and homemade Mustard Aioli on a freshly made potato bun.
We’re pretty sure this has the makings of The Very Best Burger!

Chefs utilizing Schweid & Sons product in their recipe will have their burger presented to the all-star judging panel consisting of Chrissy Teigen, George Motz, Dan Le Batard, Katie Lee and Geoffrey Zakarian for a chance to take home the Schweid & Sons Very Best Burger award.
