Bannock burger

Bannock burger is one of our all time favourite burger! The richness of the bannock is complemented by the umami of the caramelized onions, black bean patty as well as the Saskatoon berry and maple BBQ sauce. The crunchy pickled carrots balance the richness. 

Serve the bannock with a side salad of spinach, caramelized onions and pickled carrots.

Recommended Beer Pairing

This German style Pilsner pours a brilliant gold with moderate carbonation.  Noble hops balance perfectly with prairie 2-row malt for a uniquely refreshing approach to this style. Late addition hopping with Czech Saaz lend this beer its classically delicate aroma.
