As in cunt's man? What a great name for a beer.
Lots of fans of Moza, but that was a bit sweet for me. We found a bar in Xela with both Moza and Gallo on draft. A blended pitcher of the 2 somehow improved the taste of both of those beers.
But so far in our trip, we haven't found a beer with writing home about. Looking forward to Uruguay...
my wife and enjoyed one of those bottles the other day.
i closed my eyes and imagined i was in a Colorado microbrewery surrounded but all this tasty beer. yum.
we were in Delores Hidalgo last night for the Grito...over the top unreal amount of people.
we had Negro Modelo on tap :eek1
beer tasted soooo much better than the bottle.
we have a winner !!!
yeah it kinda took me by surprise.
i went to the bathroom and my wife ordered the beers.
i told her to get me a NM and when i got back there was a glass of beer on the table. at first i thought ok did they pour the beer in a glass, but when i took a sip i knew right away the taste was much better. had had more than 1 for sure. been to many a cantina & restaurant in mex. and this was the 1st time i've come across a tap version. since i've never seen it before, i just assumed it was not available that way. i'll search it out...
My dream... Negra on tap. And fresh in Mexico. I must go there again.
We definitely are starting to see a lot more Modelo products on tap in restaurants in Mexico. I agree, the tap beer is noticeably better then the bottled version. I always ask for Cervreza de Barril.
But now there is a strong new contender in for best beer in Mexico. Samuel Adams Lager. Now avalible in Soriana throughout Mexico. . Possibly the best thing that's happened to Mexican beer since Wall Mart started carrying Heineken!
wickedly overpriced however.
Sam Adams lager I can understand. Nice stuff. Not Beersnobby, but good.
WTFrack? Heineken? Ye Olde Dutch Skunk piss? :huh
SR, Did you suffer an unfortunate mining accident without your hardhat?
In a few weeks I'll be in Durango drinking Sam Adams with SR.
Full Disclosure: My "out of the gate at drinking age" beer was Heineken. Back then, for some reason, I always thought it was a German beer.
No, I have not suffered a mining accident that makes me like pissy beer, but I have worked with a lot of miners who I think may suffer such an affliction, because all they drink is Budweiser!
Yeah, I suspect Heineken might be the European version of Budweiser, but they crank its status up a bit through marketing when they sell it abroad? Maybe someone from Europe can chime in on that. But it's impossible to deny that Heineken has much more flavor than any Mexican beer.
I know you won't be coming all the way to DGO to drink Sam Adams. We can drink Mexican beer, no problemo.
To be fair, I think Mexican beer is good with mariscos and I like to have my anclas (Pacifico) with a little limoncito down at the beach, but my research indicates that there are essentially only two or possibly three different brews in Mexico, including 1) Clara (Victoria, Sol, Corona, Pacifico), and 2) Ocsura, which is essentially clara with food coloring (Bohemia, Indo). 3) Then there's Tecate, Negra Modelo and Carta Blanca, which all taste like Budweiser to me. I do put XX on a pedastool, to me it has more flavor than any of the others.
Everyone should do their own research, but that's my dos centavos about Mexican beer.
It will be good to see you there. I don't care what shit beer we drink.
Saludos to that!
Brasil brings the smack down with the OPA.
After a long, satisfying day of riding in Peru, this was by far my favorite beer in Latin America. Actually, South America.
Anything that isn't pale yellow. That gets a little old after a while.
