Bohemia IPA

Here’s something important. Bohemia has an IPA, and you can get it in Juarez.

If you don’t like IPAs, you might like this one. It’s not very IPAey. It tastes like 80% Bohemia, and 20% IPA.

I like IPAs, so I probably won’t be drinking a lot of Bohemia IPA.

In much of Mexico, AB Inbev is the popular beer distributor. They offer Corona, Modelo, and, increasingly Bud Light. In Norther Mexico, Carta Blanca is the heavyweight. They sell Carta, Tecate, and Indio, among others. Also Bohemia.

Heineken recently bought a big chunk of Carta Blanca. Lots of beer manufacturers are being bought up by multinationals.

You can try the Bohemia IPA for yourself at the Kentucky Club and the Mariachi Bar, and probably some other fine drinking establishments.

  1. I thought the whole reason IPAs were created in the first place was to find a brew that could make the trip by sea from Merry Olde England, to India, without spoiling. And, that supposedly justified its crappy taste. Personally, in case you couldn’t tell, I do not like IPAs, and I just don’t see all the fuss. Especially weird is the thought that a Mexican brew should need to try to emulate the formula. But, then, as you mention, AnBev has got their grubby fingers on everything everywhere these days, so nothing is sacred anymore.

    1. You are a better man than I am. I would have used a different verb than “emulate”…
