Drizly Expert Notes

Tecate is one of the finest lagers to come out of Mexico and should always be a go-to choice when livening up your evening. Made with German technique, but inspired by south of the border sentiments, it's a lager that has been lightened up just a bit from it's European counterparts, readying it for the warm Baja California beaches where it is perhaps the most popular.

Tecate is best enjoyed straight out of an ice cold can, afterall, who can wait to find a glass and let the crystal clear golden beer settle once poured? Its aroma is a balanced blend of toasted malts, sunswept barley, and just a hint of bitterness and earth from the traditional noble hops. If the clean and refreshing flavor of a Tecate straight up isn't enough for you, try adding a bit of lime or even a pinch of salt. This is a common technique in Tecate's hometown and well worth the effort to bring this beer to the next level of summertime enjoyment.

Tecate lager is made to pair with all of your favorite Mexican snacks and meals. At your next football party, pair it up with a tray of home made nachos complete with melty cheese, jalapeños, refried beans, and lime marinated char grilled chicken. Serve it along side house grilled fajitas with all the fixins for a perfect bite. The heat of peppers combined with the coolness of guacamole is a magical match with a cold can of this Mexican lager.
