The time has come again. On May 25th and 26th Burgerdudes och Barrels Burgers & Beer give you Stockholm Burger Fest for the third year in a row. This time with two guests from London; Bleecker och Eat Lagom.
The festival is held on Smålandstorget square in central Stockholm and during the two days, world-class craft burgers are served.
This year, the festival is also honored with two celebrity guests. Bleecker is considered one of the world’s absolutely most delicious burgers and Eat Lagom is smoking hot on England’s street food scene. This will be the first time their burgers are served in Sweden.
“It’s really awesome and everybody is welcome to have a taste,” says Rebecca Brage, editor in chief for Barrels Burgers & Beer.
Another new feature this year is that the menu will also include vegan and vegetarian alternatives.
“The demand has increased so it felt natural to us to include vegan and vegetarian food into the festival.”
Inclusion also largely applies to visitors. The festival is open to everyone. Admission to the event is free, burgers are sold at low prices and there are also some other things on the menu. Bröd & Salt serve Swedish fika and Stikki Nikki offers ice cream burgers. And, in addition, Stigbergets Bryggeri is going to serve a beer especially produced for the festival – Stigbergets Galore IPA. Visitors can even buy hamburger bread and ecological burger cheddar cheese.
So this is the third year in a row the festival is held. The first festival took place at Hornstulls Strand and was an immediate success. Since 2007, the festival is held on Smålandstorget square in front of Barrels Burgers & Beer’s city restaurant.
The festival opens Friday, May 25th at 4 pm. It’s open until 11 pm and reopens on Saturday at 1 pm when it’s also open until 11 pm.
