Congratulations to the winners of last night's Amstel Light Burger Bash at the South Beach Wine & Food Festival in Miami. For the second year in a row, Michael Symon won the People's Choice Award, this time for his Yo! Burger topped with fried salami, provolone cheese, shasha sauce, and pickled onion. He also won the award for Best Dressed Burger. The Yo! Burger is available at Symon's Ohio-based burger joint, B Spot (reviewed on AHT last year).

Marc Murphy of New York City's Landmarc won the Judges' Award for his burger The Big Marc, topped with spiked ketchup and house made pickles on a black pepper and cheddar bun.

Miami New Times and The Burger Beast have more photos from the festival. Did any AHT-ers get to attend?
