Acclaimed craft casual concept teams up with celebrity mixologists and chefs to continue fight to help end childhood hunger
Pasadena, CA (RestaurantNews.com) Dog Haus – the craft casual concept known for its gourmet hot dogs, sausages, burgers and one-of-a-kind creations – has teamed up with Phil Wills, celebrity mixologist, TV personality featured on Bar Rescue and founder of The Spirits In Motion – a.k.a. he’s a big deal – to debut its all-new Mixologist Collaboration Series in partnership with No Kid Hungry.
During the month of November, Dog Haus will introduce its first two limited-time cocktails, created by Wills, as part of the series. $1 of the purchase price from each specialty drink sold will be donated to the restaurant’s national charity partner No Kid Hungry, whose mission is to end childhood hunger in America. Beginning Nov. 1, guests at Dog Haus Biergarten locations with full bars will have the opportunity to enjoy the Flux Capacitor, made with tequila, blackberry, mint, lime, simple syrup and jalapeño, and all Biergarten locations nationwide will offer the Funky Town Shandy, concocted using lager, sprite, passionfruit and lemongrass.
“The Mixologist Collaboration Series gives celebrity bartenders an opportunity to share their individual take on libations with a wider audience,” said Dog Haus Partner André Vener. “Phil has a long-established relationship with Dog Haus and we couldn’t be more excited to have him kick off the series with these two delicious cocktails. And while we will continue to provide these one-of-a-kind food and drink options, our focus remains on our charitable efforts to help support children in need.”
“I’m honored and excited to partner with Dog Haus for this unique and seriously badass Mixologist Collaboration Series,” Wills said. “I was an original bartender for the very first Dog Haus Biergarten in 2011. The brand has come a long way since then and I’m proud to still be a part of it.”
To add to the excitement, Dog Haus is continuing its 2019 No Kid Hungry Chef Collaboration Series by adding the magic of Thanksgiving to its November menu with the return of its Turducken.
Expertly crafted by Dog Haus Würstmacher and TV personality Adam Gertler, Turducken tops a turducken sausage with turkey gravy, Haus slaw and crispy fried onions, all served on grilled King’s Hawaiian rolls. The craft casual concept will donate $1 of the purchase price from every Turducken sold to No Kid Hungry.
“There’s no better way to enjoy all the flavors of Thanksgiving in one bite than with the Turducken, which encapsulates everyone’s favorites into one delicious meal,” Gertler said. “The Turducken, back by popular demand, pairs perfectly with both of November’s specialty cocktails. So we are thrilled for it to make its return, while we continue to raise money for No Kid Hungry.”
Turducken, Flux Capacitor and Funky Town Shandy will only be available during the month of November. While Turducken will be available at all Dog Haus locations, Flux Capacitor and Funky Town Shandy will only be available at Dog Haus Biergarten locations. Future libations will be crafted by celebrity mixologists Mia Mastoianni and Lisamarie Joyce.
