Renegade Brewing Company: Denver Craft Beer

July 9, 2014 4:02 pm

Renegade Brewing Company is a relatively new addition to Colorado’s craft brew scene. Located in Denver’s Santa Fe Arts District, the tap room and brewery have received accolades including “best new brewery” from 5280 Top of The Town, and #2 Best Bar in Denver by Westword. Their vision is brewing flavorful beer with an askance look toward traditions and trends.

Their Ryeteous flagship beer has been canned since the summer of 2012 and is available throughout the area, but there may be no better place to enjoy it than the brewery's own tap room. The space doesn't have the TVs commonly found in other bars, but that just makes this a good place to strike up a conversation with new friends. Food trucks often park outside the space, making it easy to grab a bite to eat.

A Taste of Summer

June 30, 2014 1:11 pm

Summer has arrived, and what better way to kick off the season than with a tall glass of lemonade. The key to a delicious glass of lemonade is the perfectly blended proportions of sour lemons with the taste of sweet sugar. So in honor of lemonade and summer we would like to share with you a recipe for baking lemon bars. This sweet treat is perfect for summer and will be a big hit at any summertime event. So put on your apron and get ready to bake something sweet for summer!

All purpose flour
Granulated sugar
Butter or margarine
Lemon rind
Lemon juice

1/4 cup granulated sugar
3 tablespoons butter or stick of margarine
1 cup all-purpose flour

3 large eggs
3/4 cup granulated sugar
2 teaspoons grated lemon rind
1/3 cup fresh lemon juice
3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/8 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons powder sugar

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
2. To prepare the crust, beat 1/4 cup granulated sugar and the butter at medium speed of mixer until creamy.
Lightly spoon 1 cup flour into a dry measuring cup; level with knife. Gradually add 1 cup flour to sugar mixture, beating at low speed until mixture resembles fine crumbs. Gently press mixture into the bottom of an 8-inch square baking pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes; cool on wire rack.
3. To prepare the topping, beat eggs at medium speed until foamy. Add 3/4 cup granulated sugar and add the next 5 ingredients (3/4 cup granulated sugar through salt) and beat until well-blended. Pour mixture over partially baked crust.
Bake at 350 degrees for 20 to 25 minutes or until set. Cool on wire rack. Sift powdered sugar evenly over top. Yield: 16 servings
