- Friday, May 4th. Carolina de Norte: Mexican Lager Release. Catawba Brewing Co. 12 pm-11 pm. This refreshing session cerveza celebrates the deep-rooted European influence on Mexico’s brewing history when German-speaking immigrants migrated west following the Mexican War of Independence (1821).
Deep gold in color, this Mexican Style Lager has big Vienna malt character and noble hop aroma from Hallertau Mittelfrüh German hops. True to style, it finishes clean, crisp, and well-balanced. Perhaps a bit lighter than its European counterpart and superbly drinkable, our Mexican Lager offers a subtle nod to the warm climates where it evolved.
