I’ve loved Cajun and Zydeco music for quite some time now. [Really, who doesn’t love the classic “Jambalaya (On the Bayou)”]? So when Dol asked me about putting jalapeños in a beer, the first thought that crossed my mind was the zydeco song “Jalapeño Lena.” What better way to take a pilsner and spike it up with fresh cut peppers and call it “Jalapeño Lena” (it’s enough to make you wanna dance). This beer is dosed with approximately 3 lbs of sliced jalapeños per barrel! For those that didn’t like my Chili Pepper Wheat that was flavored (but not “heat” spiced) with peppers, this is for you beer and food lovers that are familiar with the Scoville unit. I’m not sure what Scoville units it will clock in as but maybe some patrons can help us subjectively figure it out.
Also, it seems only fair…if your name is Lena and you show me some identification proving it--a free pint on me!
