Happy Cinco de Mayo! Ordering Mexican food tonight? Might I make a few suggestions as to what local beverages pair best with a traditional taco (a subject near and dear to my heart)? While experts cite the best pairing to be Belgian Wits, American IPAs and Pilsners (the top choice of experts), I went a step further and made a list of easily accessible local brews that you can add to your Cinco de Mayo fiesta.
Jack’s Abby Post Shift Pilsner (Framingham, MA)
Brewed with Bavarian malt and hops, this everyday Pilsner is bright, crisp and refreshing.
Rushford and Sons (Upton, MA)
Abbey styles were originally pioneered by monks in the 17th century. Our take has the very unique and powerful Belgian Candi Sugar flavor and Tettnanger hops for a bittering complement. This full-bodied ale features the most layered and complex flavors of our core brews.
Startline Brewing Acrobat Double IPA (Hopkinton, MA)
This American Double IPA features a light malt bill that lets this collection of hops shine in extraordinary balance. Aromas of heavy stone fruit and citrus with a slight earthiness. A bitter backbone balanced with bold aroma flavors.
