Allied Press regional sales boss Emma Van Tuyl reckons it’s a great way to promote camaraderie and healthy competition between local businesses.

Pop along to Queenstown’s The World Bar, Smiths Craft Beer House, Public Kitchen & Bar, The Ballarat Trading Co., No5 Church Lane, Pub on Wharf, The Rees True South, Winnies Bar and Restaurant, and Slow Cuts in Arrowtown, to taste their special burger creation.
