Tecate and Tecate Light

First of All, Growing up in a small border town and having the city of Tecate close by, It brings me a fondness of home.

Tecate, California and Tecate, Baja California Norte MX are located in the back country of San Diego County. The mexican city by no means is the size of Tijuana.

The Tecate brewery is only about 5 mins from the US/Mexican Border, and it offers a tour and samples of the beers like many breweries.tecate1

Many People argue the fact of how good Tecate is…. some say its just another plain mexican beer. I love Tecate, more than Corona. There is no comparison between the tastes of the two.

Tecate has its own taste… abit more of a  alcohol flavor, sharp tangy taste as it hits your tongue, with a unique flavor all to itself.. if you take time to savor it while its in your mouth, you will notice the amora of a milder german beer, its a man’s beer. It has all the favor you would want it in a beer.

On a hot day, like today when its 98 degrees inside my apartment and its 7pm, it hits the spot. So yes its a very refreshing beer, but drink it cold because when its gets a bit warm, its not as good…

The whole deal with lime and salt, i believe was just a fad in mexico back in the 90s. All the mexicans I know and myself skip that scene and i guess its more of a american/ tourist thing, but If you like it go for it…

Alot of Beers from Mexico are made to be drank with a light meal, seafood and salads, etc. Many of us, enjoy them with Tacos and Burritos. So keep that in mind..

I recommend you buy it, Its one of the most cheapest imported beers around, at times a 30pk can can cost you $16, and a 18 pk can $9.

Just remember this beer has a taste of its own, dont expect to be drinking a Corona or Dos XX.
