While the nation’s favorite NFL and college teams will be battling it out on the field this fall to show who’s best, Tilted Kilt Pub & Eatery, a sports bar that pays homage to the old public houses of America, England, Scotland and Ireland, is gearing up for its own battle with the launch of one of its biggest promotions to date, The Big Arse Burger Bowl Challenge.

The 13-week promotion, which is running now through November 2, features a menu of eight burgers created by the restaurant’s beer and liquor vendors. When guests order off the menu, they will get the opportunity to visit the Tilted Kilt website to vote for their favorite.
