The other day I was perusing my local beer store for something new and interesting and the text of a label caught my eye. It said, "The Best Rated Mexican Craft Beer." The beer was brewed by the Baja California Brewery in Mexicali. The beer line is called Cucapa. http://cucapa.com/
On a hot summer day, I really do like a Pacifico, Corona, or Dos XX. Mexican beer to me was light-bodied, low hopped Pilsners that were more thirst-quencher than palate-pleasers. I had wondered why there were no local "brewpubs" in Mexico.That has apparently started to change.
I purchased three of the five Cucapa bombers that I found: an IPA (Runaway IPA), a pale ale (Chupacabras), and an imperial stout (La Migra).
All were quite good and definitely craft beers. I look forward to trying the rest and to having more beer options the next time I vacation at the Mayan Rivera.
