The Best Mexican Craft Beers in 2022

It is not a secret that Mexicans appreciate good beer, and throughout the years, the number of craft brewers in Mexico has expanded, along with the quality of the beers they produce. Because of this, we felt it necessary to compile this list of the top Mexican craft beers for the year 2022.

There are, without a doubt, a great number of fantastic and delectable beers available, but we are unable to identify them all. As a result, we came to the conclusion that the best way to assist you in planning your trip to Mexico was to provide you with 11 suggestions of things that you really must do.

Craft Beer #1: Chocolate by Jack

I have to begin with this stunning fact: Chocolate Jack is my all-time favourite. It has a nutty aroma with hints of chocolate, hazelnuts, and milk, and it has a toasted flavour with a touch of coffee. It has a robust scent, and when it’s on the tongue, it’s velvety smooth and creamy, creating the ideal harmony for the taste buds. Because it’s nearly as creamy as a shake, this one is one of my absolute favourites.

You have to give it a go with a mole from Mexico. You may also serve it with game meats like deer or armadillo, a rib-eye steak, or any other kind of steak with a strong taste.

Craft Beer #2: Páramo by De Colima

A gentle sweetness. When you take a sip of it, you’ll notice that it has a strong bitterness along with a variety of flavours that come from the three different kinds of malt that were used to manufacture it: pale ale, Vienna, and caramel. As you go closer to the glass, fragrances of tropical fruits, citrus, and passion flowers begin to overwhelm your senses.

It would go well with a cheeseburger, pig belly brochettes, or cochinita pibil if you were to have a glass of this delectable brew.
