  • 1 1/2 cups dark brown sugar
  • 1 cup kosher salt
  • 1 cup garlic cloves, smashed
  • 2 yellow onions, cut into thick wedges
  • 1 pound thick-cut bacon
  • 12, 12-ounce bottles (or cans) Wynwood Brewing La Rubia Blonde Ale

Cajun Beer Butter:

  • ¼ cup Cajun Seasoning
  • 1 cup celery, rough chop
  • 1 cup carrots, rough chop
  • 1 yellow onion, cut into quarters 5 sprigs thyme

Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add mustard seeds, pepper- corns, bay leaves, thyme, brown sugar, and salt. Whisk to dissolve. Turn off heat. Add garlic, onions, bacon, and beer. Whisk until well combined. Add turkey and fully submerge. Refrigerate for 24 hours. For the Beer Butter, place butter in a standing mixer and whip using the paddle attachment. Slowly add the beer. Then add the Cajun seasoning. Whip until well combined. Place in a resealable container and refrigerate to firm. After 24 hours brining, remove the turkey from liquid (reserving the bacon), and pat dry. Being careful not to tear the skin, place chunks of Cajun butter between the skin and the flesh. Do this all around the turkey, especially the breast. Cover with bacon. Inside the cavity, add ½ of the onions, celery, and carrots.
Add some sprigs of thyme and rosemar

Place the rest of the celery, carrots, onions, thyme, and rosemary at the bottom of a roasting pan or turkey pan.

Preheat the oven to 300 degrees F.

Place in the center of the oven and bake for 3 hours. Basting every 20 minutes. Raise the heat to 450 for the last 20 minutes to brown if needed. Reserve the pan juices.

La Rubia Special Art Edition

by Enrique Vittorino / Uncategorized / November 2, 2020

Art sits at the core of our brand and neighborhood. Although the crown jewel of Miami Art Week, Art Basel, was cancelled for safety reasons, we’re still bringing the La Rubia Special Art edition to your table. 

This year we teamed up with longtime friend and iconic artist Trek6. Instrumental to the early stages of the graffiti scene in Wynwood, Trek6 has a trajectory we’ve admired for years. This will be the 2nd time the Boricua artist works with us on a project like this. From the boombox facing i95 to the Coqui-to label, Trek6 understands our neighborhood and story in a very vivid way.  

The La Rubia Special Art edition contains twelve cans of La Rubia Blonde Ale ideal to share at family gatherings, BBQs, a day at the beach, or anything of your preference.

This pack of beer will be available at your local retailer and our taproom.
