Yep, the calendar has flipped over to September, and that can only mean one thing—footy finals.

And while watching the football with a cold beverage is fairly delicious, the one thing that has definitely been missing is Victorian AFL themed burgers. But now we’re in luck.

The Merrywell have created three custom burgers based on the three Victorian sides that made the top 8 at the end of the season—with Geelong, Richmond and Essendon all scoring their own creations.

Tuck into a ‘Yellow & Black Burger’ which is as strong as a Dusty Martin stiff-arm and features a big ol’ juicy Merrywell meat patty, double cheese, BBQ sauce and a charcoal bun, you’ll, of course, get regular fries and a soft drink with this beast.
The ‘Carnivores Feast Burger’ takes inspiration from the mighty Cats from down the highway and is loaded with a Wagyu patty, double bacon, egg, salad and The Merrywell’s famous sauce.

‘The Don Burger’ will house a Wagyu patty, crispy bacon, fried onion rings, and The Merrywell’s limited edition JD whiskey BBQ sauce.

Funds raised from the sale of these combos will support different charities. The ‘Yellow & Black Burger’ will benefit The Allanah and Madeleine Foundation, ‘Carnivores Feast Burger’ will support The Geelong Cats Foundation, and sales from ‘The Don Burger’ will benefit The Long Walk.

The combos will set you back $15, of which $5 goes to the dedicated charity partner.

Melbourne’s getting its first ever Brazilian festival, find out all about it here.
