DOW (Drinks of the Week) Sierra Blanca: Desert Pilsner & Green Chile Cerveza

Great week and some great beers.  This week we featured two beers from Sierra Blanca Brewing out of New Mexico.  First, we had the Desert Pilsner followed by the Pancho Verde Green Chile Cerveza.  Good brews made by some good folks.  CHEERS!!!!


ABV: 5.4%

IBU’s: 37

STYLE:  German Pilsner

WAS IT GOOD:  Damn Straight it was.  After a hard day of work, this brew cools off any hot temperament that I may have had.  I sat in my office catching up on some stuff and let this delicious brew trickle down my neck.  I was pleasantly surprised by it.  It had a classic Pilsner taste and is one of those beers that could be an everyday beer.  And yes you can drink every day, screw the critics.

GARAGE FRIDGE ADDITION:  Yes you should put this one in the fridge without a doubt.



ABV: 4.6%

IBU’s: 12

STYLE: Chile Beer

WAS IT GOOD:  Originally the Rio Grande Brewing Company but was bought up by Sierra Blanca in 07.  If I had paired this one correctly it would have been great.  This is not an everyday brew.  You most def want this to go with some spicy foods.   Maybe even some chocolate.  Nothing like getting that spicy sweet combo shot.  Me no I tried to pair this thing with crabs, it didn’t work.  My bad.  The beer was good though it had just enough spice in that it didn’t set your face on fire.

GARAGE FRIDGE ADDITION: Not today, but again if I was able to grab it while eating some South Philly Barbacoa or tacos, or damn near anything else that had some kick to it this would mesh well.


Levante Brewing out of Chester, PA.

Finally got to try two of their brews this weekend.  I am pretty sure I had a taste of the Glitter Parts also but can’t really remember.


Another NY State Brew Argyle Brewing and their Hop To It.  A bit high on the hops for this guy.

Left Coast Brewing who always seems to make good brews.  I had their Orange County IPA.  Not bad at all.

Lastly no real phot but we had Fin City Brewing’s Weedline E-Z IPA.

Keep sending them my way and I will keep drinking em.  CHEERS!!!!!!
