A few small projects taken care of, then time to see if the barbecue still works.

Mexican beer update:

West Coast/NW IPA

German Pilsner

Beers from Mexico

These are my favorite styles.

Several of the Mexican beers I’ve tried, I would call routine.

Low on flavor and low on alcohol content. This would make sense if you were reaching for a beer in a location where 100° temps are the norm.

My favorite Mexican beer:

Bohemia

I also enjoy Carta Blanca, Modelo, and Corona Extra.

The Bohemia beer can be hard to find in the grocery store and in restaurants.

I would rate the Corona Familiar pictured at the top of the page as a routine Mexican beer.
