Barrel-Aged Beers: El Hefe Anejo Returns

El Hefe Anejo returns to Golden Road with an updated twist. Check out the latest from our barrel-aging program led by Head Brewer Cole Hackbarth.

If you've been following along with us these past two years, then you may be familiar with a special one-off brew we experimented with in the earliest of our days as a brewery. El Hefe Anejo was one of the first specialty beers Golden Road brewed and was the unofficial launch of what would eventually develop into our in-house Barrel-Aged Program. 

While the El Hefe Anejo of year's past now seems like a distant memory, we are excited to announce the re-release of this rare brew in its latest incarnation. Much like the original El Hefe, this year's batch uses a Hefeweizen base and is aged in Tequila barrels for nine months. 

So what's different? Head Brewer and Barrel Program Director Cole Hackbarth decided to brew an Imperial Hefeweizen base (at about 8-9%abv) before aging the beer in barrel. This caused the alcohol level to go much higher; finishing out at 11.1%abv. 

The results were exciting to us as El Hefe Anejo developed more into a luxurious wheat wine. After barrels were blended, the final result was a complex Hefeweizen full of candied banana, soft agave, and mellow white oak. A structured malt backbone and a touch of lingering heat from the Tequila is complimented by the beer's fruity esters. Flavorful and dangerously drinkable. 

El Hefe Anejo is currently available at The Pub at Golden Road and in limited distribution to select Golden Road accounts. Stay tuned via our social media channels to find out when El Hefe may pop up at an event or beer festival near you!

Beer Recipes: Vegan Jackfruit Carnitas Tacos

Try making our signature vegan Jackfruit tacos at home with this recipe from The Pub's Executive Chef Adam Levoe

If there is something we love just as much as craft beer, it's good food. What better way to celebrate both worlds than with a recipe that combines them both together? Here at The Pub at Golden Road,Chef Adam whips up these vegan-friendly jackfruit tacos made with our Golden Road Hefeweizen to mimic carnitas. The result is shockingly convincing and will be a hit even among your not-so vegan friends. 

A little from Chef Adam...

Jackfruit can make a great meat substitute as it has a very similar texture as proteins like pulled pork or shredded chicken.  When using unsweetened jackfruit you must remember to overcome the natural bitterness of the fruit.

 In this recipe we use maple syrup and the lightly sweet and citrus-forward Hefeweizen to contradict the bitterness.  In the end we get a super flavorful "meat" perfect for tacos and sandwiches. 

Ingredients

2 cans of Jackfruit (in brine or water -- not syrup) 
1 yellow onion (diced) 
1 tablespoon minced garlic 
1 teaspoon ground cumin 
1/2 teaspoon ground coriander 
1 teaspoon dark chili powder 
a pinch of cayenne pepper 
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon 
Lime Juice (4 limes) 
2 tablespoons maple syrup 
12 ounces of Golden Road Hefeweizen 
Vegetable or Olive Oil 

Tip: Since the recipe only calls for 12 ounces of beer, treat yourself to a four-ounce taster to enjoy while you cook! 

Directions: Remove jackfruit from can and drain liquids. Shred with a fork and remove any seeds. Heat 2 tablespoons of oil in a sauce pan over medium heat until hot but not quite smoking. Add diced onions and stir frequently until opaque. Add jackfruit, maple syrup, lime juice, and spices and turn heat to low. Add beer to sauce pan and simmer until 75% of liquid is absorbed. Season with salt and pepper to taste. 

Add to tacos, sandwiches, salads, and more!
