The San Diego Reader is on the hunt to find the city's top burger! Help them decide at the 4th Annual San Diego Burgers & Beer Festival at Golden Hill Park on Saturday, September 7, an all-inclusive food and beer fest where attendees will get the chance to sample and vote on gourmet burgers from more than 20 of the best area restaurants as they compete to win the title of "Best Burger in San Diego". As usual with any great event in San Diego, we are raffling off 2 VIP tickets to attend, as well as offering promo code SDVILLE for $5 savings per ticket.

Burgers & Beer brings together the top burger vendors from Southern California along with some of the area's top craft breweries. Attendees ultimately decide who will win, as each ticket holder will be given a token to place in a voting box on the table of their favorite vendor. The vendor who receives the most tokens gets the title of San Diego's Best Burger. While you eat your weight in burgers and bask in the San Diego sunshine, there will be live music, more than 30 breweries pouring unlimited samples of great beer, local vendors dishing out merchandise, lawn games, and much more.
