It is no surprise to our close family and friends that Jeremy and I love the Hard Rock Cafe. We visit the Denver location at least two times a year to celebrate each of our birthdays with friends but over the last year we have found ourselves visiting even more times than that. We are lucky to have a location just a few minutes from us right in the heart of Downtown Denver.
Last week we were invited to the Hard Rock Cafe to be introduced to an exclusive, limited-time burger in partnership with Guinness. Perfect timing for a date night - Guinness happens to be Jeremy's favorite beer! This burger is unbelievable - The Guinness & Jameson Bacon Cheeseburger.
The Guinness & Jameson Bacon Cheeseburger is a half-pound certified Angus Beef patty topped with Jameson bacon jam and Guinness cheese sauce. WHAT!!???!! Yeah - it is amazing. The Jameson bacon jam is a great added flavor and who doesn't love cheese sauce on a burger - oh but wait, add Guinness to the cheese! I mean, come on!! We devoured this burger and knew it would be a hit on the menu.
You can enjoy this burger as of February 15th and I suggest you do NOW because as of April 10th it will be gone!! Yeah, we will be visiting again soon. Just like all of our experiences at Hard Rock Cafe Denver, this evening was perfect. We had a nice dinner in an atmosphere the we love - music lovers here!!
During our pairing experience we were able to meet with some Guinness representatives and hear all about Guinness. I was pleasantly surprised at how much I actually enjoyed Guinness. Confession - I have never been a beer drinker and I had always thought that Guinness was a heavy beer. That evening I learned different - it is actually a very light beer but a dark stout. Lesson learned. Since 1759, Guinness has been brewed in Dublin, Ireland, and the bold roast pairs perfectly with grilled meats. And if you saw my newest recipe you know that you can also bake with it!! Guinness Snickerdoodles - yup AMAZING!!
Because the representatives were there with us we even learned how to perfect the Two Minute Guinness Pour! That was a fun learning experience and now I can totally show off!
Pretty impressive right? Looks like a perfect pour to me.
Delicious! Make sure you stop into the Hard Rock Cafe for your Guinness and Jameson experience! I promise you will love it all. And if you are even in need of a great place for dinner, drinks and friends in Denver - stop into the Hard Rock Cafe. We love it and have always enjoyed our birthday celebrations with friends there. A must see when visiting Denver or even if you are a Denver native like me!
Would this burger be on your must try list?
