Red Robin is getting a head start on autumn by introducing a line of limited-edition seasonal menu items.
The burger chain released three items inspired by Oktoberfest, the Bavarian beer festival that runs from late September through October.
Visitors to Red Robin can order the UberBurger, a half-pound Black Angus burger with candied bacon, grilled bratwurst, Samuel Adams-marinated onions, Merkts beer cheese, lettuce, and beer mustard on a pretzel bun. There will also be a cheesy beer brat with a Johnsonville bratwurst, roasted-garlic aïoli, onion, and tomato on a cheesy baguette with a beer cheese dipping sauce. These can all be paired with a mug of Samuel Adams’ OctoberFest beer.
Along with the Oktoberfest items, Red Robin is ringing in fall with a spiced pumpkin pie milkshake made with Libby’s pumpkin pie filling, vanilla soft serve, nutmeg, and graham cracker crumbs.
The burger restaurant is also introducing a new Canadian appetizer: poutine fries, made with brown gravy, fried cheese curds, and garlic aïoli atop Red Robin’s steak fries.
The Oktoberfest menu will be available until November 1.
