HAD 108: Mexican Lagers & Dia de los Muertos

Dos Cervezas por favor, and that is all the Spanish I know. Handy though, since we’re talking about Mexican Lagers today. Is it all just Corona or Modelo or is there more to it. And while we’re in the neighborhood we figured we would also talk about Dia De Los Muertos, which I’m being told means day of the dead, I’m learning already. So poor something cold and sit back while we Have a Drink.

  • Brewery’s description: Numero Uno Summer Cerveza, our just-released summer seasonal that begs for warm temps and long nights. Originally released as Agave Cerveza in the summer of 2014 as part of our Brewhouse Rarities program, it’s the artisanal answer to the easy-drinking, south-of-the-border slammers the younger versions of ourselves knew and loved. Flaked maize makes up one third of the malt bill and highlights the distinctive corn and cracker flavor traditionally found in Mexican lagers. Agave is added at the end of the boil and the lime peel post-fermentation to impart a distinct, zesty character and a crisp, clean finish.
