Name your go-to Mexican lager of choice - Bohemia, Corona, Dos Equis, Modelo Pacifico, Sol, Tecate, etc., - but can you name a craft beer from Mexico? While still young, the craft beer scene in Mexico is full of passionate, creative, and hungry brewers working to revolutionize the way the world perceives Mexican beer. Luckily for them, they have the advantage of being able to source unique local ingredients including flowers, peppers, agave, chocolate, and more that only grow in the region.
On this episode, we bring Jason Buehler - award winning Head Brewer at Denver Beer Co. & Cerveceria Colorado - to share his experiences and insights on working with Mexican craft brewers and judging beer competitions in Mexico. He discusses the generous hospitality he's received, friendships developed, unique ingredients discovered, the challenges craft brewers in Mexico face, and more.
Update: on November 9, 2020 we learned the passing of our friend Jason Buehler after injuries from a climbing accident. He was a friend of our CEO & Head Brewer Craig Mycoskie and one of the finest brewers out there. Our hearts go out to Jason’s family as well as his brewing family at Denver Beer Co. and Cerveceria Colorado.
