Yesterday I drove the Mustang down to Banger Brewing on Fremont Street to sample some of their wonderful craft brews. I was looking for a beer to pair with the steak we would be grilling later in the day.
After sampling their Belphegor Golden Strong Ale and The Rolling Blackout Bourbon Barrel Imperial Stout, I asked the bartender for her recommendation for the steak. Her immediate response was their flagship brew, the Jalapeno
El Hefe, an American Wheat Beer, very aromatic on the nose with a spicy pepper finish. Brewed with fresh roasted jalapeno, serrano and habanero peppers plus green and red bell peppers, this beer is a bold surprise for your tasted buds. Convinced, I purchased a Crowler and headed for home.
I enjoyed sipping the Jalapeno Hefe while the Kamado grill heated up. It was a beautiful deep yellow, slightly hazy, with a dense, creamy white head, pepper aromas on the nose and mild jalapeño and Serrano pepper flavors, and with mild spice notes. Though I enjoyed it, I was concerned that it would be too big and spicy to pair with the tenderloin filets that I was grilling. Next time, we would have to serve it with a wedge of lime and fajitas off of the grill.
This beer would be a great beer to enjoy with a good cigar, Linda's Habanero Guacamole , a spicy bean dip and tortilla chips while watching the Raiders beat the Cowboys!
Next time you're downtown Vegas, drop by Banger Brewing to sample their fine lineup of craft beers brewed right on site and take a tour of the brewery, too! You will find, as I did, tasty high quality local craft brews and a very knowledgeable and helpful staff to aid in your selection.
