What beer do the locals drink?

I'm looking for a good beer that is not necessarily available in the States. Last time there I drank mostly Dos Equis.....

Are there any good Mexican brews that aren't imported to the U.S.?

Ah, a topic I like! Poppa (a frequent poster) and I just had a long discussion about Mexican beer. Dos Equis is good, they also have a Dos Equis Amber that is worth a try. Corona and Sol are commonly available, but I guess you can get those in the states. Tecate and Bohemia, Pacifico, Victoria...Yucatecan beers include Leon and Montejo.

Here's a whole thread of beer discussion if you care to peruse it....http://www.tripadvisor.com/ShowTopic-g1-i9659-k234500-Hola_Poppa-Off_topic_chatter.html

Happy drinking!

Try Bohemia, by far the best Mexican beer readily

available in Cancun. Also give a chance to Negra

Modelo, another decent Mexican beer. As to the

locals, most usually drink Tecate, Sol or Modelo

in the region, the working folks that is.

It's generally only the spring breakers and the

novice tourists that you'll see downing that worst

of swills, Corona.

I agree, you will never see the locals drink a Corona nor will you find it in a truly authentic restaurant. I drink Sol, Dos Equis

Amber and like the local Yucatan brews such as Victoria and Montejo when I can find them.

I was able to order Bohemia and Victoria in very non-tourist parts of Mexico City.

The ONLY beer that I have found in Mexico that I have not ever seen in the USA and that I know isn't imported to the US is Montejo.....my favorite beer hands down!

Very smooth, not bitter, and worth trying.

CancunCanuck, Just checked the beer post.....I have to try the ice cold Tecate in a can with lime and salt that Poppa mentioned. Sounds great!
