Move over Corona. It’s #ThirstyThursday and this week we’re drinking Mexican craft beer! 🍺
Known here as “cerveza artesanal,” we’re finding some tasty brews south of the border! As in much of the world, the craft beer scene here in Mexico has really grown the past few years.
Five years ago in Mexico, it was difficult (often impossible) to find any good beer. Now, most cities boast a few microbreweries and many supermarkets even stock a small craft beer selection.
This isn’t just a beer trend aimed at international visitors either. On our final night in Queretaro, we took a taxi to a brewery in an obscure location on the outskirts of town, only to find an enormous beer garden that was packed with hundreds of local folks, all enjoying this finely crafted cerveza on a cool, sunny afternoon. And this was just a slow Wednesday night!
Much of this cerveza is truly excellent, such as the beer we found here at Hercules. International styles served at this brewery have taken our taste buds on a trip around the world, with proper English brown ales, Czech pilsners, German schwarzbier, Belgian old bruins, and American west-coast style IPAs. Yet it’s playful styles incorporating local ingredients like agave, mango, and blue corn that we’ve found particularly interesting.
Whatever the style, we’re saying “salud” to craft beer in Mexico! 🍻 ... See MoreSee Less
You’ll have to come to PV to have a beer at Monzón Brewing Co. First one’s on me! 🍻
