calavera-beer brewed in Mexico

Calavera Mexican Imperial Stout is a microbrew strong enough to be the official Dia de los Muertos cerveza. Hints of chocolate and coffee and an aroma of caramel. Chiles are added to give this stout a kick and make it worthy enough to be a nice pairing with  mole dishes. Calavera brewery is in Guadalajara, but you can find Calavera beers at Club de la Cerveza on 5th Ave. Find a Playa del Carmen watering hole and enjoy a cold local beer.
