Next week is Cinco de Mayo, a celebration that’s bound to be much less festive during these pandemic times.

But even with social distancing, breweries are still selling beer, and people are still buying and drinking it.

At Atlanta’s Scofflaw Brewing they’re even selling hand sanitizer and face masks with beer to-go.

And with that, Scofflaw’s new Los Malhechores Mexican Lager is this week’s Beer Pick.

Los Malhechores Mexican Lager

Scofflaw Brewing, Co., Atlanta, GA

Available in 6-pack 16-ounce cans

Profile

Scofflaw’s new Mexican lager has a name that roughly translates to “evildoer.” And it features an armed outlaw goat on the label. But this crisp, easy drinking, $4.2% alcohol beer developed by head brewer Joe McIntyre is not bad in any way.

Brewed with pilsner malt, a bit of corn, Centennial hops, and Mexican lager yeast, it pours a mellow gold with a firm white head. Malty aromas and flavors are balanced by a hit of hop bitterness, with citrus notes and a touch of corn sweetness in the finish.

Pair with

Mexican lagers are great food beers, and even one called Los Malhechores is no exception. For Cinco de Mayo, all the Mexican favorites would be be easy pairings, including tamales, enchiladas, tostadas, posole, or steak fajitas.
