Sometimes you just want a reliable, simple beer that you know will quench your thirst. Our Reina del Sol Lager is modeled after the most popular Mexican-style lager in the U.S., Corona Extra. Whether you're relaxing under the sun on a pool day or getting beat down by merciless rays on a chore day, you can always count on this crisp, refreshing Mexican Cerveza to cool you off. In that fashion, we designed a straightforward recipe that consists of Pilsner malt extract, flaked corn and a scoop of Carapils with two dashes of Galena hops to provide just a kiss of bitterness.
To make it a true to form cerveza, ferment cold with a Mexican yeast strain like CellarScience® BAJA (homebrew size coming soon!). Originally developed and popularized by the Modelo Group, this Mexican yeast strain produces clean lagers and finishes dry.
