DURANGO, CO—Ska Brewing Co. today announced the annual release of Mexican Logger, its seasonal Mexican-style lager. The namesake beer of the Mexican Logger Superhero Carlos Javier—from Ska’s original comic book story and business plan—will hit shelves, decks and patios in Colorado and around the country on April 17.
At 5% ABV, Mexican Logger was made to be delicious and sessionable, taking some cues from the Mexican-style lagers many are familiar with, but improving on the result with the finest ingredients and a craft brewer’s attention to detail—kind of like it used to be when 19th century German immigrants arrived on the scene. The body is light to medium, with fresh grain and sweet malt balancing a mild and pleasant bite from the Saaz hops, and a clean, crisp finish that is a perfect match for summer’s heat.
Mexican Logger will be released in cans and bottles, and distributed in all of Ska’s markets through September. The release will be celebrated at Ska Brewing World Headquarters in Durango with the annual Mexican Logger Release Party, April 17 from 5-7 p.m., featuring giveaways, tacos from Zia Taqueria and local music superheroes The Lawn Chair Kings.
