The votes are in and Chef Bob's amazing burger made the cut and won the Grand Prize in this prestigious culinary event! We would like to thank everyone that supported Bob by ordering and voting.  The feedback on the burger was the talk of Hops all summer and we are very happy that the judges felt the same way!

Hops is proud to participate in the James Beard Foundation Blended Burger Project this year. For the last four years, chefs across the country have joined The Blended Burger Project™, a movement that strives to make the iconic burger even better for customers and for the planet by blending at least 25% fresh mushrooms into your burgers.  

Chef Bob's James Beard Foundation Project Burger: Half pound patty, local brisket and roasted trumpet mushroom grind, Roelli red rock cheddar bleu, house bacon, gochujang pickled wild foraged ramps, local arugula, and duck fat mayo on a black and white sesame bun.
