I’ve heard the hype and now I’ve finally experienced it…Golden Road Brewery. The perfect combination of my favorite things: vegan fare and craft beer. While not everything on the menu is vegan, the options for us herbivores is pretty awesome. They offer 20 different craft beers on tap, many of which are Golden Road’s own beers, and are brewed on the premises.
With Cinco de Mayo right around the corner, I had to give the El Hefe Anejo a try. As one of Golden Road’s seasonal beers, it’s aged in anejo tequila barrels. El Hefe is highly recommended and with an 8.7% ABV, it has a little kick to it too!
Tequila barrel aged beer goes perfectly with tacos of course! But not just any tacos—jackfruit tacos. I am determined to make a jackfruit dish one of these days. They’re unfortunately only really found in specialty markets like Asian or Indian shops, so they’re a little hard to get your hands on. The julienned coconut and veggie salad was an excellent dish as well. Served with spicy peanuts and spicy peanut sauce…such great flavors!
I love the chalkboard style bar menu on the wall, complete with hanging edison lights. You can never go wrong with edison lights:) Golden Road sells their beer ALL over LA. Most LA bars even have it on tap! It’s definitely the up-and-coming craft beer.
Their outdoor patio is killer! It easily accommodates MANY large parties and has outdoor games you’d find in your backyard…in fact, it even looks like your backyard. Complete with picnic tables and astro turf. I can’t believe I’ve waited this long to dine at Golden Road, it’s one of my new LA faves.
