Hi everyone! Hope you are doing well. This past weekend I went to Midtown’s Cantina Alley with my friend Amanda. I know you are probably thinking this is not a brewery, but they serve Mexican craft beer flights!!
I have been here before but the Mexican craft beer flights is something new. We went on a Saturday afternoon, there was a King’s game that day. We waited about 40 minutes for a table. It was definitely worth the wait. Once we were seated our waitress brought peanuts with lime and chili. She also brought us chicharron as well.
Amanda ordered a Michelada and I of course ordered the Mexican craft beer flight. We also ordered food. Cantina Alley serves Mexican Street Style Food. We had built up an appetite waiting for our table and we could not make up our minds because they are so many great things to choose from. Amanda ordered the Elote which is Mexican street corn, the Pastor Taco and the Perro Caliente (Mexican Bacon wrapped hot dog). I ordered the taquitos which is 5 rolled tacos with red salsa, tomatillo salsa, cotija cheese, crema and I also ordered the Pastor taco. So good!!! I always order the taquitos, it is a must for me.
Now lets talk about what I was even more excited for. My beer flight.
Cabotella – Blonde Ale 5.5% ABV. Light bitterness beautiful golden color. https://www.bajabrewingcompany.com/
La Perversa – Double IPA 8.2% ABV. Medium about of bitterness, citrus aroma, tropical fruit flavors. I really liked this one. http://borderpsychobrewery.com/la-perversa.html
Lycan Lupus– IPA 6.9% ABV. Hoppy but not bitter. Strong citrus aroma and fruity in taste. I could not find a site for this beer but it is brewed by Cerverza Fauna.
Gaviota – Baja Pilsner 4.7%. This is a refreshing Mexican Pilsner. Light body and great to drink on a hot day. I could not find a link for a website but this beer is brewed by Cervecería Wendlandt.
Overall I had a great time catching up with my friend, eating delicious food and drinking amazing beer. They were all good, if I had to choose a favorite it would be La Perversa, the double IPA. I am really happy that Cantina Alley is bringing Mexican Craft Beer into the craft beer scene in Sacramento. I am excited to try other beers as they rotate them in. They also offer other great drinks. If you are in the Sacramento area I highly suggest you go check them out.
