When it comes to Mexican Beers, what springs to mind for most of us? Maybe Carona and Dos Equis or another brand with regular TV spots? If that’s the case for you, we want to take this opportunity to highlight two national brands that may have flown under your radar. Bohemia is a  pilsner that’s bright and very drinkable, and Indio is a smooth, slightly sweet larger made with caramel malts.


Bohemia – Brewed by Cervecreia Cuauhtemoc Moctezuma


Malty with low hops

Light citrus



Light Malty sweetness

Crisp initial taste with a lingering slightly bitter after taste


When to Drink

With lighter Mexican food and warm summer weather

If you want something with a bit more body and depth than many standard Mexican pilsners



Indio – Brewed by Cervecería Cuauhtémoc Moctezuma


Caramel malts



Malty sweetness with caramel

No lingering aftertaste


When to Drink

It would be interesting to pair with a Mexican dish like Chicken Mole that has a somewhat sweet note

If you’re looking for an approachable, sweeter deviation from a traditional lager
