Mexican Beers, Ranked

Mexican Beers, Ranked | Arizona Wine | Scoop.it
Cinco de Mayo used to be a nice little half-holiday on which Americans drank Corona and tequila after work in a vague but earnest tribute to Mexico. What exactly did Cinco de Mayo signify? Maybe it commemorated the beginning of a just reign or the end of a cruel one; perhaps it had something to do with a great hero's birth, or a major development in the fields of soccer or socialism. We weren't certain, nor did we need to be. It was the day when Señor Sombrero's had two-for-one frozen margaritas, and we all had guacamole for dinner. Who would ever want to rain on such a benign parade?
Jason Laveglia's insight:

Hilarious review of mexican beers for cinco de mayo and my favorite quote  "We don't celebrate Cinco de Mayo because we think it's Mexican Independence Day; we celebrate it because it's nice to have an excuse for a little theme-boozin' on a Monday night."


Where did they think up these descriptions anyway? Taste like a skunks breast milk?
