The Taco-Inspired Beer to Drink All Summer Long

Taco Tuesday Is Here to Quench Your Thirst


We contend that tacos are great. Now, we'll cede the floor for any dissenting opinions.


That was obviously a trick, and you passed. Now let's move onto the next topic: beer. 

Specifically, which beer to drink alongside those tacos. If you said "all of them!" you are not wrong, and we like your enthusiasm. But bonus points to anyone who suggested Taco Tuesday Mexican Lager.

This beer comes from Atlanta-based Monday Night Brewing, and even though it's a perfect drink for summer, it's available year-round because tacos do not abide by things like seasons.

It clocks in at 4.5% ABV, so it's as sessionable as they come. And, if you care about such things, know that it's brewed with pilsner and Munich malts and hopped with Saphir and Saaz hops. You can find it on tap in select bars, plus in 12-ounce and 16-ounce cans. The latter are smart when you'd rather spend more time drinking beer and less time fetching beers.

Now, you may think that this beer can only be consumed on Tuesdays or with tacos. That makes sense, on the surface, but the company is quick to offer a correction:

"Taco Tuesday is a light, crisp crusher for any day of the week. This Mexican-style lager has a touch of sweetness with a smooth finish. It’s the ultimate pairing for tacos, but it works with all other types of food, too. Like fajitas. Or burritos. Or enchiladas."

So, it's nothing if not versatile
