Soo Burger Month has begun! You can eat burgers to help build homes!

What’s Soo Burger Month?

Today is October 1st, and that means it is the beginning of Habitat’s first annual Soo Burger Month fundraiser!

Soo Burger Month (sponsored by OutSpoken Brewing) is a city-wide fundraiser running throughout the month of October. Using the Burger Passport, Habitat will guide you to participating restaurants that are offering a creative new burger (or a tried-and-true one) from which at least $1 will be donated to Habitat for Humanity Sault Ste. Marie & Area per burger sold.

Participating restaurants will compete to win the Best Burger Award (as voted on by customers) and/or the Most Burgers Sold award.

The fundraiser runs from October 1 to October 31, with awards being announced in early November.

While you #SupportLocal and #SupportHabitat this October, take photos of your #SooBurgerMonth adventures and send them our way to be featured in our Burger Gallery! You can do this by tagging Habitat on social media, using the #SooBurgerMonth hashtag, or emailing marketing@habitatsault.ca!

What’s a Burger Passport?

How is OutSpoken Brewing part of this?

Established in 2011, OutSpoken Brewing is a micro-craft brewery with a heavy focus on quality ingredients, community-mindedness, and supporting local. OutSpoken prides itself on using local ingredients where possible and continuing to expand its catalogue of beer styles, always releasing new brews with a variety of flavour profiles.

OutSpoken is offering a special edition can of their Anvil Red Ale in honour of Soo Burger Month. For the month of October, they will be donating $0.50 of every can of Anvil sold and $1 of every glass of Anvil sold from the brewery. Customers will also be able to donate to Habitat any time they visit the brewery!

Anvil Red Ale – “Strike when it’s hot and cool down with this refreshing Red Ale. Anvil pours deep red in colour with a rich, creamy cap. Medium-bodied and appropriately balanced. The caramel malt and hoppy nuances of this beverage will pair well with anything grilled.”
