Another great tailgating recipe - these are yummy hearty burgers! From "5-Ingredient Grilling"...

These are very different and quite good! I made half the recipe using one lb of ground chuck. The beer flavor really comes through in a good way, and they are delicious with onions and a spot of spicy mustard. Next time I may sub onions for the relish. Thanks for posting! Made for Newest Zaar Tag.
