This Lager Craft Burger is my all-time favorite grilled burger recipe!  It combines my love of lager beer with a perfectly grilled burger. It is layer upon layer of flavor and texture.  Each bite is like a piece of heaven.

This Lager Craft Burger with a perfectly seasoned burger patty recipe.  I use my homemade burger seasoning blend to give it even more flavor and grill it.

During the last few minutes of grilling, I pile on a heaping mound of Beer Cheese Spread.  This stuff is incredible and so easy to make.
