When a couple of food and drink legends join forces, very good things can happen. This is confirmed by the latest boozy collaboration between burger maestros 8bit and beloved brewery Young Henrys.
These mates have dreamed up a next-level creation celebrating that perfect partnership of beer and burger, dubbed the Malted Beast. It's a no-holds-barred assembly of a signature 8bit meat patty, beer onions made with Young Henrys' Newtowner pale ale, cheese, local pastrami and bacon glazed in porter, with a good helping of both Handsome Devil Co. barbecue sauce and rich Young Henrys' Cloudy Cider cheese sauce. And it'll set you back just $16.
This all-local monster is set to make its debut at 8bit's Darling Square digs on July 19, kicking off with a launch party from 6pm. There'll be DJ tunes, games and prizes aplenty, and if you're one of the first 100 to RSVP to the Facebook event, you'll score discount burgers and free beer.
If you fancy a taste of the Malted Beast, you'd best be quick — it's here for a good time, not a long time.
