Can You Handle the Heat of These Spicy Beers Infused with Latin Flavors?
The world of craft beer has been on the rise for the past decade, making strides throughout the nation.
We’ve seen all kinds of styles resurface from IPAs, to Berliners, to the sour movement. But the latest trend is more up latinos’ alley: Spicy Beers.
Pásanos la botella cause if there’s something we can handle, is the heat these beers pack.
Evil Twin Spicy Nachos
And speaking of things we love, it seems like the peeps at this Copenhagen’s Brooklyn import know how to mix things up with this limited release pale ale that’s brewed with corn and fresh jalapeños, to replicate one of our favorite dishes.
Green Flash Día de los Serranos
If you lean toward the dark side--of beer that is--then this California-brewed imperial stout is the one for you. The rich coffee notes gets a kick from the serrano chilis, and finishes nicely with the bittersweet chocolate. Levanta muertos.
Lips of Faith Cocoa Mole Ale
¡Esta cerveza sí que es fuerte! At 9% ABV, it’s the highest of all in alcohol content. And just like any proper mole, the flavors are very complex, mixing dark chocolate malts with chipotle, guajillo, and ancho chiles.
Finback Brewery en Verano
Even though the beach months are still far ahead, this Queens brewery summer seasonal is a collectors item and worthy of being sought out to enjoy with better weather. It's brewed with jalapeños, fiery habaneros, and a dash of lemon and lime to spruce things up.
Twisted Pine Brewing Ghost Face Killah
This is the OG of spicy beers (and perfect if you're a Wu-Tang Clan fan), the reigning king too, using the spiciest of all peppers to give it a royal kick--the ghost pepper. As if that weren’t enough, it also carries jalapeño, serrano, Anahaim, Fresno, and habanero, it’s the kind of heat that keeps on giving.
