Every time I drink Montejo beer, it takes me to a relaxing spot on vacation in Mexico!

It has been a popular beer in Mexico for decades, and is now be available in the United States. Montejo represents the experience and attributes of the country where it was born: adherence to tradition and culture, pride derived from accomplishments and hard work, and aspirations to achieve greatness.

Montejo has a light golden color and is renowned for its crisp, refreshing finish. Although a lighter lager, Montejo is smooth and full-flavored.

It is such a great tasting beer that Los Angeles native and rising star Chef Eddie Ruiz, head chef and owner of the popular Latin restaurant Corazon y Miel partnered with the Mexican beer brand Montejo to develop a series of summer recipes and accompanying drinks using Montejo beer.

Chef Ruiz has taken this authentically Mexican beer and combined it with sea bass, game hens, chimichurri steak and mouthwatering Montejo BBQ sauce.
