Hopdoddy Burger Bar, nationally-recognized burger and beer joint, will end up the very first multi-unit concept in Texas to offer the Impossible Burger. The famously meaty plant-based burger from Impossible Foods will debut June 23 at 11 Hopdoddy locations, including its flagship in Austin on South Congress Avenue, as well as restaurants across Austin, Dallas, Houston and San Antonio.
Hopdoddy Burger Bar Launches The Impossible Burger – Offered as being a take on its “Classic Burger,” the Impossible Burger at Hopdoddy includes the Impossible Foods patty, Tillamook cheddar, green leaf lettuce, white onion, tomatoes as well as its signature “Sassy Sauce” on the brioche bun for $14. The burger can additionally be customized having a whole wheat grains bun to have an entirely plant-based option. In each location, Hopdoddy will partner with Saint Arnold Brewery to pair “The Impossible” with their 5 O’Clock Pils.
“We are proud to partner having a brand that aligns perfectly with all the pillars that Hopdoddy Menu 2020 was founded on: a distinctive and honest product made the right way, with the freshest and finest available ingredients. These pillars permit us to serve the very best quality burger with regards to flavor, health insurance and sustainability,” said Jeff Chandler, CEO of Hopdoddy Burger Bar. “Impossible Burger exceeds our highest standards and will make a great accessory for our menu and our brand — and we’re excited to share it with Texas’ Hopdoddy fanatics.”
Hopdoddy: Hops, cows…as well as the Impossible.
Highly respected for the pioneering role in accelerating the “better burger” trend, Hopdoddy was named one of many “Best Burgers in America” by both Food & Wine and Rachael Ray Every Day. Hopdoddy was created to express the ideal union of burgers and beer: handcrafted beer (Hop) and (Doddy), the nickname provided to native angus cow in Aberdeen, Scotland.
Founded during 2010 by Guy Villavaso, Larry Foles, Chuck Smith and Larry Perdido, Hopdoddy stands out for its “on your own” ethos and full bar. All burgers at Hopdoddy are created with antibiotic- and hormone-free beef. Every burger is ground in-house daily, and buns are baked on site. Hopdoddy uses Kennebec potatoes, hand-cut and blanched each morning, and sauces and dressings are produced from scratch. Currently, Hopdoddy has 18 locations across Texas, Arizona, California and Colorado.
“We wish to grow together with Hopdoddy,” said Impossible Foods CEO and Founder Patrick O. Brown, M.D., Ph.D. “And it’s fitting to start out our relationship right here, in Texas, which includes the most discerning burger experts on the planet. We encourage every one of them to use The Impossible.”
Big Taste, Small Footprint
The Impossible Burger will be the world’s only burger that appears, handles, smells, cooks and tastes like ground beef from cows — but is created entirely from plants, with a much smaller environmental footprint than meat from animals.
Made entirely from plants, the Impossible Burger uses about 75% less water, generates about 87% fewer greenhouse gases and requires around 95% less land than conventional ground beef from cows. It’s nejjlz without hormones, antibiotics, cholesterol or artificial flavors.
In development since 2011, the Impossible Burger debuted in July 2016 in New York City at Chef David Chang’s restaurant Momofuku Nishi. It’s currently served in nearly two dozen additional restaurants in New York City, California and Nevada. For more information about Impossible Foods, please visit www.impossiblefoods.com. In addition to the Impossible Burger, the company is actively developing additional varieties of plant-based meats and dairy products.
