Growing up, Memorial Day was always the unofficial start of summer, but to be quite honest, we’re starting to rethink this given the growing popularity of Cinco De Mayo. Margaritas. Refreshing beers. Outside dining. All of that screams “Summer is here!” in our book.
On Cinco De Mayo, Iron Hill Brewery released a beer that they call Lemon Cerveza, so we’re thinking that they share our sentiments given what they had to say about this beer in a recent press release:
Iron Hill Brewery (Iron Hill) announces the release of Lemon Cerveza (5% ABV), a Mexican-style lager with a burst of fresh-squeezed lemon juice and lemon peel, now available in 12 oz. six-packs at over 700 beer, wine, and liquor retailers throughout New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and Delaware. This clean lager channels the very best of outdoor drinking season with a refreshing taste.
Lemon Cerveza 6-packs will also be available at all Iron Hill Brewery & Restaurant and TapHouse locations on draft and in cans starting May 5th. Enjoy the refreshing lemon notes of Lemon Cerveza by pairing it with light and easy flavors, like the Baja-style Fish Tacos or the Loaded Nacho Burger from Iron Hill’s Burger Month Menu.
This warm weather beer inspired the turquoise hues and vibrant tropical colors on the can artwork featuring a laid-back beach on an island or Mexican paradise, transporting drinkers to summer from the moment they pick up the can with the bright taste of lemon.
“I originally brewed this beer for my wedding in Mexico as a nod to Mexican cervezas’ light and refreshing taste. Bringing it back in cans in time for summer has been an extraordinary experience,” explains award-winning brewer Pete Corbett. “The strong lemon notes of this lager transport you to relaxing on the beach.”
Given the pretty packaging and very inviting descriptions, we were quite intrigued about this beer and went in with a healthy dose of optimism. Click play on the following video to find out what we thought of it:
