Cuban cigars, shots of tequila, and Indio beer. Why I love living next to the Mexican border. This is at one of our favorite hangouts, the Mission Bar in Reynosa ... complete with Pancho Villa recruiting posters inviting "gringos" to fight against Black Jack Pershing 'cause "we pay you in gold!" :drunk:

More Indio and Cubana smokes, this time at another bar in another town (Opera Bar in Nuevo Progreso, TAM). Notice that the labels are changing on the bottles. Indio is a regional beer and I have seen at least three different labels for the same brew.

Hey, it's Mexico!

Nothing would totally surprise me. One night we asked for a shot of some premium tequila (Hornitos? Patron?) and Deb and I both realized immediately that they had poured cheap tequila (or mezcal) into the bottle. This guy -

ran down the street to another bar to get his manager. We negotiated, they apologized, and we got some free shots out of it.

All in good fun. I was back there just a few days ago. They always watch my bike when I park on the street, although I'd say that my bikes are safer on the main drag in Nuevo Progreso than they would be in most US cities.

The Opera Bar is actually much more expensive than the Mission Bar. Opera Bar is a bit of a sh*thole, whereas Mission Bar is actually very, very nice even by US standards (bartenders are super polite, they wear uniform shirts, etc.).

Indio Beer at the Mission Bar is only ten pesos (about 75 cents US) whereas it's maybe $1.50 at most places in Progreso.

Tequila is maybe twenty pesos at the Mission Bar.

So as you can see, a person can get relatively crashed for $15 or so en Mexico. :whiteflag:

Yuengling is my "Budweiser" beer. It's the stuff I go to if I just want a quick 6er. Good for everyday kinda drinkin'.



We've been working out of a bar here in the Rio Grande Valley (yeah, I know ... tough gig but someone has to do it :wink: ) and they have a good selection of great beers (Stella, Bass Ale, Guinness, etc.) but at a price.

Lone Star is the loss leader here, with Shiner Bock being only slightly more expensive.

In some of the bars in San Antonio you'd find Pearl Light as the house cheap beer. It's OK on a really hot day when you don't want to spend any money.

I had Bud Light Lime for the Jimmy Buffett pre concert tailgate party on May 17 and enjoyed the brew at the vacation beach house last week. Great stuff!

One of the guys on our hockey team last year brought Bud Light Lime when it was his turn to supply beer. We didn't invite him back this year. We've been on a Mexican run lately, a lot of Dos Equis and Modelo with Tecate thrown in for variety from time to time.

I had some Caribe a couple weeks ago in St Martin, not bad at all. Though, I do prefer Balashi from Aruba. That is fantastic stuff.

It is hard to find Lowenbrau any more so I drink this when I get that taste craving.

Been on a huge craft beer kick these winter months. I have to admit the Brewmasters show reignited my interest in craft beers. Some recommendations:

-anything from Unibroue
-DogFish Head 90 minute, Burton Baton, Palo Santo Marron, Pangaea,
-Infinium Ale (Sam Adams/Weihenstephan collaboration)

Anyone else on BW a fan of these types of brews?

I'm getting tired of bootlegging Balashi back from Aruba, I really wish they would export to the US.
