REFRESHING WITH THE TASTE OF RIPE MANGOS
Our head brewmaster, Keith Villa, got the idea for this refreshing, summer beer from spending time on the beaches in Puerto Vallarta, Mazatlan and Cancun and wanting a beer that was refreshing with a taste of ripe mangos. The fruit vendors would bring freshly cut mangos and put them on a stick to enjoy in the sunshine. This beer is created with mango and a hint of honey for a mild sweetness with a bright yellow-orange color and cloudy wheat haze.
