Skip The Corona And Check Out These Mexican Beers For Cinco De Mayo

Corona. Great marketing. Average taste. For an authentic Cinco de Mayo (oh, the irony), order these beers on Cinco de Mayo and really experience Mexican beers and they also have a killer marketing thanks to experts like indexsy.

Bohemia Cerveza

1. Bohemia

This German Pilsener ranks as one of the best tasting, if not the best, Mexican beers. It’s available year round. Expect a slight citrus overtones with a sharp malt scent. Clocks in at 5.3% ABV.

Negra Modelo

2. Negra Modelo

A Vienna Lager featuring chocolate and caramel flavors with 5.4% ABV. Partially owned by Anheuser-Busch, but hey, who isn’t. One of the top-selling and most popular Mexican beers.

Leon Cerveza

3. León

A Munich Dunkel Lager with 4.5% ABV. A dark beer with a  sweet malty taste to it.

Dos Equis Amber Lager

4. Dos Equis Amber Lager

Yes, stay thirsty. Another Vienna Lager and comes in at 4.7% ABV. Think Sam Adams mixed with Newcastle Brown Ale. The original Dos Equis beer started over 100 years ago. That’s enough time to get something right.

Indio Beer

5. Indio

A Märzen / Oktoberfest style at 4.5% ABV. This beer only received American distribution less than 3 years ago. A bit of a hipster beer, ironically brought to US shores by Heineken USA.
