Neomexicanus Hopped Maize Pale Ale
A pale ale packed with uniquely spicy, full-on mango, sharp citrus, delightful savory, and strong deciduous pine character. With tropical fruit, pineapple, pear, watermelon, stone fruit, and candy vibes.
Cinco de Mayo is a yearly celebration on May 5, commemorating the anniversary of Mexico's victory over the Second French Empire. It has also become a holiday or date that is celebrated all over the world. Mainly through Mexican cuisine because who does not love Mexican cuisine?
This year we, through our bar Pils, are joining in the festivities and celebrating a week's worth of culinary fun! As you probably can gather if you're reading this text, we've also brewed a beer to accompany all that great food: A Mexico inspired easy, drinking pale ale with maize (corn) and hopped with the neomexicanus descendant El Dorado and the 100% neomexicanus hop Zappa.
Neomexicanus hops are a genetically distinct sub-species of hops that have been growing wild in the dry mountain regions of New Mexico for the last million years. They're pure American hops, as neomexicanus does not trace its heritage back to the European hop lineage. And they make for a pretty interesting beer. ¡Salud!
