The Avalon Brew Pub Burger of the Week

Is there a better guilty pleasure combination than a refreshing Bohemian pilsner and a juicy Angus burger? Lucky guests at ICONA Avalon are just steps from a fresh pint and a casual upscale dining experience at one of the best New Jersey breweries: Avalon Brew Pub. Not only is Avalon Brew Pub the East Coast’s only beachfront microbrewery, but it has quickly turned heads with the “Burger of the Week.” Each week, the inventive and talented culinary team at Avalon Brew Pub piece together a unique Angus beef burger creation, all of which pair perfectly with a house brew. Some of their creations have included wasabi, tzatziki, whole grain maple mustard spread, and mortadella. There are approximately 52 weeks in a year, so hats off to our culinary crew on their creativity! Here’s a taste of what’s been done before.

The Kickin’ Shrimp Burger

The Kickin’ Shrimp Burger was an instant hit among patrons for obvious reasons. The name itself persuaded most guests to give it a try without even looking at the menu. An eight-ounce burger, cooked to your liking, is topped with crispy buffalo shrimp and smothered in blue cheese. This crowd-pleaser, much like all of our burgers, is paired with a basket of crispy fries, house ketchup, and a pickle spear.

new jersey breweriesThe Wisconsin Cheddar Burger

Perhaps the only combination better than buffalo shrimp and blue cheese is squeaky cheese curds and crisp applewood bacon. The Wisconsin Cheddar Burger was an easy sell, especially for our guests from the Midwest. A perfectly-cooked, eight-ounce Angus beef burger is simplistically paired with applewood bacon, fried cheese curds, and a scrumptious, homemade Wisconsin cheddar cheese sauce. We miss it already.

The Carolina BBQ Burger

For those of you who don’t know, Carolina BBQ sauce has a vinegar and mustard base, in contrast to the generic fusion of ketchup, molasses, and spices. The result is a tangy, slightly sweet flavor profile. It’s typically utilized on grilled or smoked pork and chicken. The Carolina BBQ Burger is a perfect marriage of homemade BBQ sauce, fried dill pickles, pork roll, gruyere cheese, lettuce, and tomato. We’re still dreaming of those fried dill pickles.

The Crabby Patty

We were fresh out of barnacle shavings and the Krusty Krab’s secret formula, so we decided to create Avalon’s version of The Crabby Patty. Our Crabby Patty has two four-ounce Angus patties, a housemade crab cake, mango sriracha aioli, American cheese, tomato, and lettuce. All other Avalon NJ hotels are already after our secret Crabby Patty formula!

New Jersey Breweries

Locals have been salivating over our burgers and beer since we opened our doors – now it’s your turn! We’re one of the only New Jersey breweries on the popular Jersey Shore. ICONA has three award-winning resorts in NJ, all within steps of the Atlantic Ocean’s sandy shores. The wintertime is the perfect season for cozy, romantic New Jersey getaways. Dial 1-609-454-6484 to learn more about Avalon Brew Pub and our elegant beachfront properties.

Top 5 Attractions in the Wildwoods

The Jersey Shore is much more than pristine beaches, lively nightlife, and luxurious hotels. Our slice of southern New Jersey has some of the best family-friendly adventure parks, zoos, and ocean activities on the East Coast. ICONA has three award-winning hotels only steps from the beach. Other Wildwood Crest hotels cannot match our excellent service, amenities, and proximity to the area’s best attractions. Your upcoming family getaway to the Jersey Shore should include these five Wildwoods activities.

Cape May County Zoo

It’s not often you find a zoo that has free entry, free parking and is open 364 days a week. The Cape May County Zoo is easily the best place to view wildlife in the state. Unlike most zoos, Cape May is uncrowded and features some of North America’s most beloved animals. Adorable critters such as river otters, red foxes, snow leopards, and red pandas love the attention! The zoo also has popular lions, black bears, and giraffes as well as obscure bongos, oryx, and marmosets. Oceanfront ICONA Avalon is only a scenic six-mile wetland drive from the zoo! Avalon features Avalon Brewpub, The Sandbar Village, and a beautiful outdoor heated pool.

Jersey Shore Alpacas

While the Cape May County Zoo also has alpacas, Jersey Shore Alpacas offers an altogether more intimate experience. Get up-close-and-personal to this farm’s lovable alpacas. Meet, feed, pet, and learn about these furry South American creatures. Alpacas are native to Peru and are often mistaken for llamas. We highly recommend taking a private group tour into an alpaca paddock.

Thunder Cat Dolphin Watch

Thunder Cat Dolphin Watch & Speedboat Tours has an incredible reputation for providing close encounters with beautiful bottlenose dolphins via speedboat. Their ocean adventures are so unique and exhilarating that they were named “Best of Philly” in 2016 by Philadelphia Magazine (Philadelphia is a 90-minute drive away). Their speedboats are “dolphin magnets,” according to customers. Thunder Cat has a 99 percent dolphin sighting guarantee. ICONA Diamond Beach, one of the premier Wildwood Crest hotels, is only one mile from Thunder Cat.

Wildwood Boardwalk

The Wildwood Boardwalk is the perfect locale for a morning, afternoon, or sunset stroll. Grab an ice cream cone, coffee, or a walking taco and gaze out into the vast Atlantic Ocean. Remember to take home a souvenir from a local shop. Families love the boardwalk because of the three amusements piers complete with over 100 rides!

Morey’s Piers and Water Parks

The very best amusement pier on the Jersey Shore is at Morey’s. This staple has dozens of thrilling rides varying from kiddie to extreme. Morey’s Piers is also home to the Raging Waters Water Park. Raging Waters has slides, rivers, pools, and cabanas on the edge of Wildwood Crest Beach.

Skincare Essentials

Skincare is must have when spending any time in the sun. Harsh UV rays can cause damage with sunburn or sunspots. Protecting your skin from UVA and UVB rays is important to skin health. Using an SPF sunscreen of 15-50 can help reduce the impact of the sun. It’s also beneficial to re-apply throughout your beach day! If you end up getting burnt, make sure you have Aloe Vera with you. Aloe is great for it’s cooling relief.

Along with skincare, swimwear is also essential for your day (or days) at the beach! You won’t want to forget your favorite swimsuit, whether it’s a bikini, cool one-piece, board-shorts, or square-cut trunks. You may also want to bring more than one option for your trip. Mixing and matching your clothing is also crucial. Swimwear that is versatile furthermore can be worn in a few different ways will last longer than one outfit. Beyond your swimsuit, you’ll want to think about beach-wear like cover-ups and flip-flops or comfortable sandals to slip on and off. Cover ups can include everything from sundresses to shorts and tees and button-ups. Try a floppy hat or baseball cap as you enjoy some fun in the sun.

We know you’ll pack your skincare regimen, and much-needed suits for the beach but these things, often forgotten about are also essential. When packing your beach bag in your room, don’t forget to bring a change of clothes – you might end up at one of our restaurants after a day in the sun. You might want to invest in a radio or Bluetooth speaker so you can enjoy some fun beats while playing in the sand. A small, simple first aid kit is also something to consider. Bandaids, anti-bacterial wipes, and cream can come in handy if you or a loved one get a cut. Finally, don’t forget your sunglasses! Like protecting your skin, your eyes also need help with UV protected sunnies. We recommend finding a cheap pair and leaving your expensive glasses at home, in case you lose them or they break.


Your New Jersey Beach Resort will be an incredible experience so make sure you pack these necessary items for you! Everything from skincare to your beach swimwear and items you might forget, you won’t want to leave these at home when visiting our ICONA Resorts this summer.
