Sister chains Carl’s Jr. and Hardee’s have rolled out another sandwich with an alcohol-flavored ingredient. This time they’ve teamed up with Anheuser-Busch to offer the Budweiser Beer Cheese Bacon Burger.
The new burger features a charbroiled, grass-fed, all-natural beef patty (or a Black Angus patty) with thick-cut Applewood-smoked bacon, lettuce, tomato, caramelized onions, Swiss cheese, and a Budweiser beer cheese sauce on a brioche-style premium bun. The beer-flavored ingredient is a creamy cheddar cheese sauce blended with the classic taste of America’s No. 1 full-flavored lager.
Budweiser Beer Cheese Fries is also being offered at participating locations. It’s made up of fries topped with the same beer cheese sauce and crumbled bacon.
