An American-style lager from across the border, Tecate strikes a pleasing balance of citrusy hops and nutty malts for a brew with plenty of character that’s still smooth and highly drinkable. Tecate gets its name from the town in Mexico where it was first brewed in 1944. Tecate lager is noted as the first Mexican beer to recommend a lime and a sprinkle of salt to complement the earthy malts used in brewing, and this method is now enjoyed with most Mexican brews.
To fully enjoy the Tecate experience, drink the beer chilled at 36 degrees—and don’t forget to slice the lime!
