Cincinnati Burger Week officially kicks off on July 15, offering $5 specialty patties at participating restaurants across the Tri-State. But before the burgers hit the grill, head to Braxton Brewing Co. in Covington for the official kick-off party on July 10, featuring a sneak peek of various specialty options from Flipdaddy's, Bru Burger, Keystone Bar & Grill and The Pub, plus Braxton brews.
It will also be your first chance to grab — and stamp — your official CityBeat Cincinnati Burger Week passport. Once you collect four stamps, you can be entered to win the grand prize of the Ultimate Grill Out Party.
Cincinnati Burger Week is a magical seven-day food extravaganza that takes place July 15-21 at more than 75 restaurants, bars and bakeries, each offering their own chef-prepared take on the burger — meaty, veggie and even dessert burgers. It's the biggest Burger Week yet.
While many of the participating restaurants are veterans, like Flipdaddy's, Taste of Belgium and Nation Kitchen and Bar, there are a few new kids on the block including Queen City Whip, Arnold's Bar & Grill and Salazar.
Cincinnati Burger Week is presented by the Ohio Beef Council and is sponsored by Braxton Brewing and Jack Daniel's, so expect to find some beer or cocktail pairings with your burgers at various eateries.
The Burger Week kick-off party takes place 5:30-8:30 p.m. July 10. Free admission. Braxton Brewing Co., 27 W. Seventh St., Covington.
