Schlafly releasing new brew for Cinco de Mayo

Schlafly releasing new brew for Cinco de Mayo

May 5th is officially Cinco de Mayo, one of Mexico’s biggest holidays commemorating the defeat of Napoleon’s French army by a small Mexican force at the Battle of Puebla in 1862.

In the US it’s basically a cultural celebration and another great opportunity to drink beer. So, let’s get to it.

Schlafly Beer is marking the day with the launch of its limited-edition, brewpub-only Mexican Lager release, ¡Yo Quiero Cerveza! at its Maplewood location, Schlafly Bottleworks, this Friday, May 5, from 6 – 9 p.m. with a ¡Yo Quiero Cerveza! Party. Guests can take home a free pint glass with any purchase, try the ¡Yo Quiero Cerveza!, enjoy live music, games, and food specials including chips, salsa, and tacos.

The Beer

This 5.1% ABV brew is Schlafly’s interpretation of the easy-drinking lagers from south of the border. This Mexican Lager is amber in color with a toasty malt-forward flavor and well-balanced hop character. Crisp, clean, and smooth, this beer pairs well with a burrito doused in fire sauce. 

The label for this beer represents a “new look” for Schlafly packaging. Designed by local artist, Bri Durawski of Quiet One Creative, the label features a chihuahua embodying the ¡Yo Quiero Cerveza! mood by looking adamant about wanting a beer.
