Jupiter, FL – LPGA rookie golfer Megan Grehan has received support from Burger & Beer Joint, LLC.

The four-unit restaurant chain, which has plans to open 15-stores over the next five years, has signed a two-year sponsorship to support Megan.

“Megan has earned exempt status on the LPGA tour for the 2014 season, said Tony Hannan, CEO of Burger & Beer Joint. We wanted to help her to cover her travel expenses in her rookie year.”

Megan will play in at least 17 tournaments and as many as 31 depending on qualifying. Megan started playing golf at the age of five and has never looked back. She won the 2002 NY State Women’s Amateur tournament at the age of 13 and became the youngest to win the event. Megan later earned a full scholarship to Vanderbilt University in Tennessee before going on to play on the ladies European tour.

Burger & Beer Joint is a full-service gourmet burger sports restaurant with a Rock N’ Roll theme. With locations in South Beach, Miami, Pembroke Pines and Orlando, FL (opening in May 2014), Burger & Beer Joint is expanding through franchising and corporate stores.

Megan will be a brand ambassador for Burger & Beer Joint with logos on her golf attire, her likeness in advertising and personal appearances at some of the restaurant units.

 “I am grateful to Burger & Beer Joint for believing in me and helping me to launch my professional career,” said Megan. “I am looking forward to a great first year on tour and my goal is to earn Rookie of the Year honors.”

Burger & Beer Joint to Replace Culpeppers Near UCF

Devin Huber - Friday, March 28, 2014

By Emon Reiser News Editor Published: Wednesday, March 19, 2014

Burger & Beer Joint, a South Florida full-service restaurant franchise, will open its restaurant in place of Culpeppers, which closed late January.

The new location on University Boulevard is less than a mile from UCF and will join other recently opened franchises up the road including 4 Rivers, Wawa and RaceTrac.

Bill Herman, Burger & Beer Joint’s brand development manager and director of planning, said that the lease was signed last month and the restaurant is slated to open in early May if there are no construction delays. He added that Burger & Beer joint is in the process of both inside and outside construction on the 6,000-square-foot space.

“It’s gotta look like a Burger & Beer joint, so we’re focused on that right now,” Herman said.

Herman said the location will begin its hiring process in April and will bring about 60 new jobs to the area.

The franchise is also looking for a second location in Orlando closer to International Drive. Herman said what sets Burger & Beer Joint apart from other burger locations nearby is that it features gourmet burgers, a full menu and full bar. The restaurant has a sports and rock ’n’ roll theme.

The restaurant also features a novelty 10-pound motherburger that can be ordered ahead of time to feed a group of people.

Herman plans for the location to be a supportive part of the UCF community and it may be open for events or scholarship opportunities.

Burger & Beer Joint plans to reach a total of 50 locations in the next five years with two to three stores opening each year.

No Beef with Burger & Beer Joint

South Beach — the mecca of strange, overpriced cocktails; glittery, drug-fueled dance parties; and pretentiously hip restaurants — has spawned a surprisingly down-to-earth burger spot in Pembroke Pines.

The buzzy Burger and Beer Joint, with South Beach and Brickell restaurants, has opened a location at Hiatus Road and Pines Boulevard, an up-and-coming corner of Pembroke Pines that has recently lured several high-quality, small casual food chains such as VooDoo BBQ and 100 Montaditos.

The vibe here has some of the best aspects of Miami Beach, with a young, upbeat staff, plenty of music, an inviting open kitchen and an interior with the right amount of scarlet paint, metal and polish to make the place look enticing but casual. Besides the main dining room, there is a quieter room to the right side, where half of the large bar resides. There is also plenty of outside seating, made cool by a pair of enormous (and I quote from their labels) "Big Ass Fans," which look like they belong on the wings of a small plane. With at least a dozen large TVs throughout the restaurant, the place is decent for catching a game, though it has a different vibe than, say, Duffy's or the Ale House.

While the prices are a bit on the high side for casual food, the portions are, too. Just because burgers are the prime feature here doesn't mean you should overlook the above-average appetizers.

Start with a plate of beer-battered onion rings ($7), featuring jaw-busting slices of onion so large Xena the Warrior Princess would be as quick to throw them at an enemy as to take a bite. While the rings come with a jalapeno-cheddar sauce, browse the list of 15 sauces for an alternative you may enjoy more, such as chipotle ketchup, cilantro sour cream and bourbon barbecue.

A plate of 10 "Octane" chicken wings ($10) comes barbecued or with three degrees of spiciness. We opted for the barbecue and got deliciously tender wings with a thick, smoky sweet sauce in just the right amounts. Chili fries ($9) with cheddar and sour cream are decent, with a tomatoey chili on a heap of slender fries and a dollop of sour cream.

If there's one appetizer not to miss here, it's the "Mac Daddy" mac and cheese ($7). It impressed me with a simple preparation and an expertly browned bread crumb coating.

As you move farther down the menu, you'll find a sentence that's like balm to burger purists: "All beef served MEDIUM RARE unless otherwise requested." That's right, folks, unlike other spots that make a big deal about their burgers and then won't serve them below medium or even medium well, Burger and Beer Joint actively encourages you to eat a burger with a nice, pink center.

The acid test for me at a new burger spot is to eschew the exotic toppings some restaurants use to differentiate themselves, while often hiding the mediocre meat underneath. So I asked for a simple, unfussy half-pound Angus beef burger on a brioche and Swiss ($10.50, no sides). The result was a juicy, delectable burger. With one bite, Burger and Beer Joint earned a spot among my most beloved burger restaurants.

Burger & Beer Joint Plans Major Expansion

Devin Huber - Thursday, September 19, 2013

Inks 10-store franchise agreement

September 19, 2013


Jupiter, FL - Burger & Beer Joint has announced today major plans for national and International expansion.  Burger & Beer Joint has recently opened its third store in South Florida (Pembroke Pines) and has signed a 10-store franchise agreement to open stores thoughout Florida and Georgia.

B&B Joint has plans to open 50-stores thru franchised and corporate units over the coming years, says Tony Hannan, B&B Joint Founder and CEO.

What makes B&B Joint far different from the influx of burger concepts on the market is that they offer a gourmet full-service concept in an energetic, fun atmosphere with a full bar including over 75 beers. B&B Joint already has two successful units in South Beach and Mary Brickell Village (Miami).

“The B&B Joint brand is very strong, says Hannan. “The B&B Joint units are averaging almost five times the average unit sales of a typical quick service burger concept.”

B&B Joint emerged onto the South Beach (Miami) scene in 2009 and became an instant hit. In 2010, B&B launched Brickell (Miami) and sales were tremendous as well. “With two solid units with strong revenues, we saw this as the time to grow the brand rapidly,” said Hannan.

Burger and Beer Joint is known for its rock and roll vibe and is a destination favorite to both locals and tourists. Patrons experience B&B’s strong happy hour crowd as well as the late night fun; or just a place to go and enjoy a burger for lunch or dinner in a sports-themed environment.

Customers will get a Prime Certified Angus Beef burger ranging from 8 to 10 ounces. The signature burgers as well as the unique sauces and toppings make  B&B Joint a special dining experience.

 The highlights on the menu include the ten-pound Mother Burger, the fried twinkie with ice cream, fried zucchini sticks and adult milkshakes.

Investment Groups will be keeping a close eye on Burger & Beer Joint as it hopes to put itself in a league of its own.

Burger & Beer Joint

11025 Pines Blvd., Pembroke Pines, 954-367-8980,

This fledgling chain is expanding from its two Miami locations to Broward County mid-month.

"Burger & Beer Joint's inspiration came from three things: gourmet food, a fun atmosphere and rock n' roll," marketing manager Devin Huber says. "We've never catered to a specific type or demographic, so the niche is simple: It's a fun place to go for an excellent meal."


The lineup will feature twists on comfort foods and gourmet burgers named after classic rock n' roll songs, such as Thunder Road with smoked pork belly and homemade bourbon BBQ sauce ($14) and the Wagyu-beef Mustang Sally with red-onion marmalade, brie and prosciutto ($16). If you have a sinful urge, order the Wagyu-beef Stairway to Heaven with pan-seared foie gras and black-truffle demi, served with duck-fat fries ($32). Other takes on fries are zucchini, mushroom or sweet potato (all $6).


Alternative burgers include bison ($21), turkey ($11-$12), chicken ($14), ahi tuna (market price) and build-your-own (starting at $8). You also can upgrade four salads with a choice of eight proteins (starting at $4).

The menu will suggest craft-beer pairings from a selection of 25 on tap and about 60 bottled ones.

Lunch and dinner daily will be served amid a decor of Chicago-style brick, vintage motor signs and wood booths. A patio will offer seating and a bar.,0,2551085.story


America's Best Bars for March Madness

America's Best Bars for March Madness

Published March 24, 2012 by Gayot

March Madness means office pools, sneaking peeks at the scores at work (if not the games themselves), and taking in the action at sports bars. So, put on your favorite team's gear and get ready to chow down on burgers and Buffalo wings at one of these top 10 sports bars across the country. One of them features a top chef's take on a gourmet Las Vegas sportsbook, another has television screens in the bathrooms so you won't miss a moment of the action, while a third will actually transport you to the game itself. Play ball!

Jake's Dilemma
430 Amsterdam Ave.
New York, NY 10024

This fun-filled Upper West Side party place appeals to any mood. The front room, spacious and flanked by a long bar on one side and booths on the other, is filled with lots of diversions: foos ball, video games and the usual array of sports games flashing on multiple TVs. A regular and raucous neighborhood bunch makes Jake's ripe for chants, hollers and drinking games. And why not --- with 40 bottled beers and 15 brews on tap, there's plenty of reason to party here. But those who want something more sedate know to hit the cozy couch-crammed back room. Bookshelves stocked with ancient texts and period furniture may make you feel as if you're drinking in an old-moneyed family’s living room. Fortunately, with good nightly drink specials, whether you're old money, new money or little money, Jake's won't put you in a financial dilemma. Check out the Top 10 Value Restaurants in New York.

Bobby Valentine's Sports Gallery Cafe
225 Main St.
Stamford, CT 06901

Make no mistake: this is no ordinary sports bar. It's a shrine to one of Stamford's favorite sons, owner Bobby Valentine. Born in the city, he was a star ball player in high school and is currently the manager of the Boston Red Sox. Think of this as Bobby's annuity, frequented by his local friends and fans. The place is filled with memorabilia and, of course, when a good game is on, with sports fans. With "warm ups" like the hearty chili topped with melted cheeses, chicken tenders served with hot sauce, "Hall of Fame" entrées like the full rack of barbecue ribs and a sizzling 14-ounce NY strip steak, not to mention ten "innings" of everything from salads to pizzas, sports fans will be well fed even if the game goes into overtime.

The Burger & Beer Joint
1766 Bay Rd.
Miami Beach, FL 33139

The Burger & Beer Joint features 120-year-old Chicago brick walls, wood booths, copper ceilings and an outdoor patio. There are your basic bar soups, salads, sandwiches and snacks, but the Joint lives up to its name, with 99 different bottled beers and design-your-own burgers, for which diners select size (1/2 or 1 pound), bun, toppings, sauces and sides, including mushroom fries and onion rings. Menu burgers range from $11 to $32 for a ten-ounce wagyu beef burger topped with pan-seared foie gras and black truffle demi designed by executive chef Carlos Barillas (Nobu Las Vegas and Miami). There's even a gimmicky ten-pound Motherburger that's free if a single person finishes it within two hours; otherwise, $125. If you'd rather watch something more athletic than competitive eating, the dark B & B Sports Bar has eight flat-screen TVs, chalkboard walls filled with scores, a pool table and $5 beers.

Burger & Beer Joint (Miami, Florida)

Devin Huber - Tuesday, February 28, 2012

When visiting Boirgereau in Miami, I knew I would experience the city’s best burgers, starting with Burger & Beer Joint.

 The name itself sounds seedy, which is exactly where I expect to find the sloppiest, tastiest burgers. Despite its trashy moniker, Burger & Beer Joint is very polished, albeit with “rebellious” details that conjure up images of wild and tough bikers on Harleys (their logo is, after all, designed to look like a tattoo). And the restroom is equally put-together  yet edgy, with wallpaper of practically life-size pinup girls, complete with fishnet tights and full-coverage 1940s two-piece swimsuits, a far cry from the bikinis you see girls trotting around in on South Beach (wallpaper by CCIO Group). I assume the men’s room was wallpapered with the same gals — funny how most women are totally fine with this, but most men would flip if there were half naked men all over the walls in their bathroom. The white counter and sinks were embedded with shards of glass in all different colors; it was sort of as if a grownup box of crayons exploded, and I really liked the effect. Finishing touches included slightly curved faucet handles and thin, ultra-modern toilet flushers. And I can’t forget the hallway leading to the restroom, lined with beer ads and photos, including one of a group of champion burger eaters who successfully demolished Burger & Beer Joint’s 10-pound Motherburger — $125, or free if you can finish it.


I love fancy burgers, so Boirgereau assured me I would love Burger & Beer Joint, and I did; their execution of fancy burgers is indeed some of the best. I ordered an 8 oz. monster topped with provolone, prosciutto, pineapple, bourbon barbecue sauce, tomato and a fried egg, topped off with a brioche fun “branded” like a cow with a Burger & Beer Joint “branding iron.” Scrumptious. I’m a burger master.
