A taste of real ale from home, bought success for The Beefy Boys in the World Burger Championships in Las Vegas, with their ‘Butty Back’ burger claiming top spot in the final round!
The Beefy Boys are six amateur cooks from Herefordshire, whose passion for turning quality local produce into amazing BBQ foods, guided only by their taste buds and a lot of experimentation has catapulted them into the spotlights on the world food stage. They won UK’s Best Burger at the top UK BBQ competition Grillstock in Bristol in June and qualified for a place at the World Food Championships in Las Vegas, to compete against 50 of the best burger teams in the world. Wye Valley Brewery helped make this dream a reality when they came onboard to sponsor the team.
The World Food Championships is the highest stakes food competition in the world. This multi-day, live-event culinary competition in Downtown Las Vegas, showcases some of the world’s best cooking masters competing for fame and fortune, and is broadcast to millions via a 6 episode US TV series.
Despite tough competition, the Beefy Boys, won their way through to the 10 team final and then pulled out all the stops with their ‘Butty Back’ Burger in the final round. This show-stopping burger featured their signature patty – mouth-watering beef brisket smoked with Butty Bach ale from Wye Valley Brewery and impressed the judges with its lip-smacking Butty Bach sauce. The ‘Butty Back’ hit top spot in this final round of the World Burger Championships!
The Beefy Boy’s cumulative scores saw them take an amazing overall 2nd place in the world! For the boys from Hereford, it felt like hitting the jackpot and they take home a prize pot of $5,000.
“We’re proud to have supported such a talented local team, and offer them huge congratulations on their incredible achievement at the World Food Championships. It’s amazing to think that our Butty Bach ale was part of the winning formula for the Best Burger in the World! ” Comments Jennie Hermolle, Wye Valley Brewery Marketing Manager.
