Sunday Night Suds - Pacifico Clara

This week's Sunday Night Suds takes a seasonal turn and reviews Pacifico Clara.

Every year around Cinco De Mayo, I try to review a kosher certified Mexican beer in honor of the national holiday. Hey after all, if turkey on Thanksgiving is (almost) universally accepted, why not Mexican beer on the anniversary of one of Mexico's key victories over the French Army on May 5, 1862.

This year we went all out for Cinco De Mayo in the KB household. Every Sunday Night we try to have a theme dinner. These can vary from Chinese or BBQ or Make Your Own Salad or Breakfast Night or Shabbos Food (especially if we were away for Shabbos) or Make Your Own Pizza or Israeli Night or as the case was this week - Mexican Night.

Its actually a great way to have a family dinner on a budget. Instead of going out to eat we make a special dinner which the kids look forward to. Afterwards we will try to watch a video together but this can be a little more challenging due to the ages of the kids. 

So this week our Mexican Night consisted of chili, fajitas, brown rice, salad, wraps and spicy guacamole. I washed this feast down with La Cerveza del Pacifico's Pacifico Clara. The beer is essentially a lager with not much in the way of carbonation and a little adjunct flavor. I would not drink this on its own, but it did not clash with the spicy flavors of the meal and they in turn helped me look past the Rolling Rock/Heineken adjunct like flavors.

Pacifico Clara is certified kosher by the OK, as are many other beers produced by Compania Cervcera Del Tropico S.A. de CV. To see what the experts on Beer Advocate think about Pacifico Clara, please click here.
