MACON, Georgia (41NBC/WMGT) – The Georgia Beef Board and Visit Macon announced Macon Beer Company as the winning restaurant of the 2020 Macon Burger Week. This is according to a news release from the Georgia Beef Board.
Customers selected Macon Beer Company’s “Second Street Heat” burger as their favorite with over 800 votes.
In a statement Michael Dean, director of operations for Macon Beer Company, said:
“It was a long week…In the end, it was great to see new faces that hadn’t been in the building. We sold literally a ton of burgers, nearly two thousand. We’re very humbled and gracious that the community came out, enjoyed everything and voted for us.” Dean shared that “this [Macon Burger Week] is so much bigger than a hamburger. There’s so much crazy stuff going on outside of these four walls that we [Macon Beer Company] really try hard to create an environment that you can forget all of that and enjoy time with your friends and family.”
