Mas Cerveza, Por Favor!!!

These beers are must haves for any Cinco de Mayo celebration.

Mas Cerveza, Por Favor!!!

We don’t need a special occasion to drink beer, but just in case, today is:

CINCO DE MAYO

Contrary to common belief this is not Mexican Independence Day, but the celebration of the Mexican defeat over French forces in the Battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862. The great news is you don’t need to be Mexican to enjoy a party. Here are some beers that pair well with a fiesta!

Day of the Dead Beer or Dia de Los Muertos (We loved the cool art on the labels, so we had to show you them all, but you can pick whichever matches your tastes.)

Whatever you are drinking or eating, we hope your fiesta is fabulous! Happy Cinco de Mayo!
