Trying to write about the difference between all of the shitty light Mexican lagers for a Cinco de Mayo-inspired list (for the L.A. Weekly food blog Squid Ink) was a challenge. I even stopped by Beachwood to ask the bartenders’ opinions on the subject, but alas, they were un-opinionated on such lowbrow beverages. I eventually remembered how good some of the Mexican amber and dark lagers are and the rankings began to take shape. Apparently, this list is pretty spot-on, approved by those in the comment section as well as my geeky beer friends in the Hop Heads, so I’m pretty proud of the fact that I pulled this one out of the depths of my butt.
