How many beers have you tried? I saw that beer the other day but I didn't pick it up. Pale lagers don't do much for me. The only one I've had thus far that was a cut above the rest was Kona Longboard Lager.
I've basically reconciled it in my mind that Mexican beer just won't give me what I want. Negro Modelo was better, but even that left me wanting a lot more. I was in Total Wine in Thousand Oaks and saw a couple Mexican beers that I'd never seen before, both in cans. One was called Chupacabra, IIRC. Next time I'm there I'll pick up one of each and try them out. There may be hope yet.
I day dream of moving to Mexico and starting up a craft brewery. The names for the beers write themselves.
Aztec Sacrifice Red Ale
Atole Chocolate Stout
Moctezuma’s Revenge Brown Ale
El Cucuy IPA
Padre Hidalgo Dubbel
Me Llamo El Diablo Quad
Abuelito Old Ale
Yo No Saison (my buddy came up with this one)
El Borracho Strong Ale
You should try beers from the baja mexican microbrewery Cucapa, they make that chupacabras beer and a few others. Really good stuff!
Oh man. Someone pinch me. A recently opened high end beer/wine shop in Downtown by the Arts District. Went by it a couple nights ago with moderate expectations. Found some beers I haven't been able to find almost anywhere. Fer godssakes look at their beer list
Bruery Rugbrod. I think this may be my first rye ale. I wasn't sure I would like it but I've been pretty impressed by it. Dark and fairly malty (honestly by aroma alone I would have pegged this as a stout, perhaps even Alagash Black) with a mild/medium spiciness. Actually, I'm quaffing this down.
