After about 1 day of nothing-but-Dos-Equis in a fancy Playacar resort, the homebrewer/craft beer enthusiast will be thirsting for an IPA, stout or anything with a little substance to it. If this sounds like you, get out of there! Head into town. It’s a bit of a trek all the way down to the end (38th) of 5th avenue, but that just means you’ll be extra thirsty when you get there. The first thing you’ll notice when you get here is the cozy atmosphere, with about 8 tables outside and a natural-wood-finish-feeling bar inside. The beer menu changes regularly, as they will get specialty beers in from all over the world, but there seems to be some staples that are always available. These include many craft Mexican beers, plus a good selection of familiar names from Europe and North America. Between my wife and I, we tried a few local craft beers. Our favourite was Mano Pachona IPA from a brewery called Albur. We made another trip back later in the week to get another taste of that! They have a small food menu, and the only things we tried out were the chicken tacos. They were definitely up there with the best tacos I’d had there and they were super cheap. If you want some good interesting beer, there aren’t too many options in the neighbourhood, so you’ll have to check this place out. The beer’s great and still cheaper than British Columbia prices. I also have to mention that the service was excellent. The folks on staff we super friendly and obviously very passionate about good beer. They gave us a great dinner recommendation for La Cuevo del Chango. This place is right around the corner and has some unbeatable décor and food.
