If you are a beer connoisseur, you may know that Mexican beer is not a one dimensional beverage.
With a rich history and even bigger array of flavours and styles, there is a Mexican beer for every palate. While its flavours run deep, the overall tone is refreshing and light.
What makes Mexican beer different to beers from other regions? It has a lager-like quality, while being light-bodied. The flavours are usually mild, but most certainly not dull!
Going back centuries, well before the Spanish Conquest, the Mesoamerican zones (which include Mexico, Costa Rica, El Salvador and Belize), became proficient in the production of fermented beverages… including corn beer. European influence came later, with barley-based beer entering the scene.
Some of the world’s most popular beer products are from Mexico. Corona is now one of the highest selling beers in Australia. With Corona came the customary lime wedge, which showed us that we don’t have to take beer at face value.
There are other, less recognised Mexican beers available that must be added to your shopping list. Bohemia, Dos Equis, Tecate and other authentic Mexican beer brands are all available in our online store.
