Thanks to Bryce Eddings, we ‘d like to share with you, Four Ways to Celebrate Five.
1. Mexican Light Lager
2. Mexican Amber Lager
Countries with warmer weather tend to produce fewer ales and focus on crisper, more thirst-quenching lagers. Mexico is no exception and consequently the most popular brews from there are either light or amber lagers. In the Nineteenth century Austrian brewers brought Vienna-style lagers to Mexico where they remain a staple to the beer industry to this day. Popular brands include Dos Equis Amber and Negra Modelo.
3. Mexican Beer Cocktails
Two popular Mexican beer cocktails feature a glassful of ice and beer. The chelada is basically lime juice and Mexican light lager. The spicier michelada uses amber lager and hot sauce for a spicy drink. Try with or without the jalepeño garnish.
4. Mexican Ale
Despite my sweeping generalization above, there are a few ales brewed in Mexico. Cervas Minerva brews a stout and one of the “Big Two” in Mexico, Cerveceria Cuauhtemoc Moctezuma – Grupo Modela is the other – produces a few English ales under the Castra brand.
