The Only Mexican Beers You Should Be Drinking on Cinco de Mayo

Like many readily available American beers, a lot of the Mexican beers you come across offer little in the way of flavor. We’re not saying partying with a few Coronas is going to make for a bad Cinco de Mayo, but there are some other options out there that deliver at least a little more in the way of taste.
Here are five we recommend.

  • Bohemia – Link
  • Negra Modelo – Link
  • León – Link
  • Dos Equis Amber Lager – Link
  • Indio – Link

Craft Beers of Mexico

  • Minerva Imperial Tequila Ale – Link
  • Los Muertos Immortal Beloved – Link
  • Ensenada Horchata Obscura Porter – Link
  • Calavera Mexican Imperial Stout – Link
  • Cucapa Green Card – Link
  • Propaganda American Pale Ale – Link

    Finally! A post that isn’t pushing Corona for Cinco de Mayo. Thank you! Although, since Cinco de Mayo is a bigger deal in the US than in Mexico, we should be drinking Budweiser – the way that marketers intended.

    The mexican craft beer movent is growing, and producing very good beers, especially in Baja California. If you like american craft beer, you should give these craft beers south of the border a chance. Especially since the two big industrial breweries, Modelo and Cuahutemoc-Moctezuma are now owned by Anheuser-Busch and Heineken respectively.
