Beer Flight Podcast: Mexico with Jason Buehler of Denver Beer Co.

Name your go-to Mexican lager of choice – Bohemia, Corona, Dos Equis, Modelo Pacifico, Sol, Tecate, etc., – but can you name a craft beer from Mexico? While still young, the craft beer scene in Mexico is full of passionate, creative, and hungry brewers working to revolutionize the way the world perceives Mexican beer. Luckily for them, they have the advantage of being able to source unique local ingredients including flowers, peppers, agave, chocolate, and more that only grow in the region.

On this episode, we bring Jason Buehler – Head Brewer at Denver Beer Co. & Cerveceria Colorado – to share his experiences and insights on working with Mexican craft brewers and judging beer competitions in Mexico. He discusses the generous hospitality he’s received, friendships developed, unique ingredients discovered, the challenges craft brewers in Mexico face, and more. 

Considered the Mexican Bloody Mary, the Michelada has become a popular drink in Mexico City. The origins of the drink are in dispute. One story points to the Potosino Sports Club in CDMX in 1960s when after a tennis match “El General” Esper Michel asked for a beer with ice, lime, and salt in a chabela-style cup. Other club members started ordering a “Michel lemonade”, or chelada meaning ‘cold one’  and the name was shortened later on to become the michelada. Another origin story says the michelada is a portmanteau or mi chela helada which roughly translates to ‘my ice cold beer’.
