For its latest release, Occidental Brewing Co. has gone south of the border to Mexico for inspiration. Perfect for the summer days, Occidental Brewing has released Cerveza Clara, a Mexican-Style Lager.
Known for its German-Style beers, Occidental Brewing threw their hat in the ring and brewed a trendy Mexican-Style Lager. Cerveza Clara uses German Pilsner Malt with 6-row and flaked maize that provides an incredibly light body backed up by plenty of malt character. Brewed with a clean, crisp German lager yeast and finished gently with noble German hops it clocks in at 4.6% ABV, and 18 IBU.
Cerveza Clara currently on tap at Occidental Brewing’s Portland taproom as well as a handful of spots around the Portland area via Maletis Beverage.
