Neighbourhood burger hangout, Ben’s Canteen, has teamed up with BrewDog to launch Ben’s Canteen x BrewDog Burger, the first in a series of Ben’s and BrewDog collaborations. They’ll be available from July 31 for a month at both Ben’s Canteen sites as well as a selection of BrewDog bars in London.
For beer and burger connoisseurs Ben’s Canteen x BrewDog Burger will be packed with two beef patties, double smoked cheese, streaky bacon and BrewDog’s scene-stealing flagship Punk IPA barbecue sauce. Stacked with crack fries (fries in BrewDog’s Kingpin batter) to give it that extra height and crunch, Ben’s BrewDog Burger will be priced at £12.
BrewDog’s Operations Director, James Brown, comments, “We had been looking into innovative ways to infuse our beers in food and wanted to partner with a restaurant famed for their burgers and who shares our brand values. Ben’s burgers are fantastic, and so Ben’s Canteen x BrewDog Burger was born”.
The collaboration is the first of what will become a regular showcase at Ben’s Canteen and BrewDog Bars. Further down the line will see the launch of a BrewDog fried chicken burger as well as a vegan burger.
Ben’s Canteen x BrewDog Burger will be available from July 31 and throughout August at both Ben’s Canteen sites in Earlsfield and Battersea as well as the following BrewDog bars: Camden, Clerkenwell, Shepherd’s Bush, Shoreditch and Soho.
Ben’s Canteen has two sites in Clapham Junction and Earlsfield, with a third to follow at Battersea Power Station, and have built a loyal clientele over the years, becoming a go-‐to for weekend brunches and relaxed dinners. With casual all-‐day dining in the DNA of the brand, Ben’s Canteen is an award-‐winning concept, having been voted Best Restaurant in Wandsworth in the 2015 and 2016 Time Out Love London Awards and named among the Evening Standard’s Top 25 Brunches in London.
BrewDog was born out of a shared passion between friends, James Watt and Martin Dickie, to make great craft beer for those who are passionate about it too. Within two years of launching, BrewDog had become the fastest-‐growing alternative beer brand, and the Punk IPA became the top-‐selling IPA in Scandinavia. Today, BrewDog now has 46 bars both nationally and internationally and continues to introduce new craft beers to the market.
