Steam Whistle - Do One Thing Really, Really Well

Back to Recipes Home.

Head Smashed In Buffalo Burger

Albertans have a profound love affair with the open range and cooking over fire--so there could be no better combination than enjoying an ice cold Steam Whistle with flame-kissed burgers made from one of the Prairie's most noble inhabitants: the bison.


Mix all ingredients together in a bowl until well blended. Form into 8 patties. Grill the burgers on a medium heat grill for 6-7 minutes per side (or until meat is no longer pink). Toast your buns if you like.

To really kick up the flavour, whip up one of our award-winning bb-q sauces.


  • 1 1/2 lbs. ground free range Alberta bison
  • 6 strips smoked bacon (diced)
  • 1/4 cup Steam Whistle Pilsner
  • 1 free range egg
  • 1/4 cup bread crumbs
  • 2 shakes of garlic powder
  • 2 tbsp. of hot mustard (Dijon or otherwise)
  • 2 dashes of Worcester sauce
  • 4 dashes of your favourite hot sauce
  • 1/2 of sharp Canadian cheddar cheese
