Burgers and Beers: Ninja vs. Unicorn (Pipeworks Brewing)
After one taste of this amazing beer from Chicago's legendary Pipeworks Brewing Co., Chef Matthias decides he's going to need 3 days in the desert with a bag of mushrooms to match the intensity of flavors. Culinary mayhem ensues.
Matthias declares Trevor's fruit-forward American Pale Ale to be a "fine dining beer" and creates a next level burger to match up with it, featuring some top-shelf ingredients. It's a burger by chefs for chefs—and for the rest of us.
Trevor's mango-infused masterpiece Milkshake Headache Double IPA inspires Matthias to create an Indian-inspired Burger that will match up to the beer's explosion of flavor with a carefully constructed combination of South Asian elements.
A perfectly craft Rauchbier from Dovetail Brewery gives Matthias his most ambitious idea yet: a deconstructed haggis burger. Ever wonder what goes into haggis? And how on earth this could possibly be good? You might be surprised.

"Scientists are going to dissect your brain someday to figure out how you made that connection," Trevor tells Chef Matthias after he makes a culinary leap to pair a pear and rhubarb IPA with a French onion soup-inspired burger. Genius at its finest!
