Consider yourself lucky, Houston. We're one of 11 cities to receive Montejo, the first Mexican beer imported from Mexico. The golden lager is available at a variety of bars, restaurants and grocery stores in the Houston area, starting today, September 1.
Anheuser-Busch decided to launch the release of Montejo in the southwest region because of the heavy concentration of Hispanic consumers and because Mexican beers already account for approximately 60 percent of all imported beers into the United States.
"Our brewmasters have perfected the Montejo recipe using time-honored Mexican brewing traditions," Cesar Enrique Lopez Pineda, head brewmaster of Montejo, says. "The result is a bright, smooth and full-flavored lager with a crisp finish. It's an honor to make this regional favorite available to beer drinkers outside of Mexico for the first time."
Montejo is a smooth Mexican beer, with more than 100 years of history. If you enjoy Corona, you'll enjoy this brew. It's easy to drink, thanks to the carbonation. While it airs on the side of tasting more like water than a bitter, citrusy beer, it's still something you could enjoy at home after work, or at a sports bar.
You can purchase Montejo in 12 12-ounce cans or in a package of six 12-ounce bottles.
