Beers Around The World: Mexico

Welcome to a new series here on the blog. Over the next 11 weeks of "Beers Around the World," I'll be reviewing a different beer from a different country in Epcot's World Showcase. It's a joint promotion between WDWorld Traveler and my other blog, The Beer Drinker's Guide to the Galaxy. (Which you should totally bookmark and read regularlarly...or at least whenever it's updated, which isn't often.) And while we're on the subject of Walt Disney World beers, you should definitely make it a point to check out Beers & Ears, a blog devoted entirely to the subject of drinking at Disney World. It's chock full of posts just like this one, including some written by my friend Brian. Check it out.

Now join me in my weekly training session for my April visit to Walt Disney World when I'll be attempting to "drink around the world" at Epcot. Each week a new country; a new beer.

Dos Equis XX

What It Is: There are a few different versions of Dos Equis out there but the most common version is the lager (the one in the green bottle) and it's readily available at Epcot in the Mexico pavilion, as well as around Disney World (notably and appropriately at Coronado Springs) and around the country. It's pretty common in bottles, especially in areas with larger hispanic populations, but I actually prefer it on draft with a lime wedge. It's my go-to drink order at our local Mexican restaurant and it will be my go-to beer when drinking around the world in Mexico.

Why You Should Drink It: It's a great alternative to Corona. It's light and refreshing but has a bit more flavor (without any of that light struck "skunked" taste.) Plus if you love your Mexican beer with a lime in it, you can still do that with this!  

Trivia: Interestingly, Corona is not available in Epcot's Mexico. I'm not certain of why but I'm sure it's a sponsorship thing since Corona is made by Dos Equis competitor Modelo.

My Grade: B+
