Our neighbors to the south are often hailed for their great cuisine but maligned for their not-so-great beer. If you cleave to mainstream Mexican beers, then you may have a bad impression of the lot of them. But that’s a mix of myopia and masterful marketing misleading you!

You just have to know where to look and you need to know what you are looking for. You are not, for example, going to find a world-class Sour Ale made in Chiapas.
