Cerveza Pacifico Clara

February 20, 2017 by Manny Hendra

History

It was first brewed in 1900 when three Germans opened a brewery, the Cerveceria del Pacífico, in Mazatlán. Its label includes a picture depicting a lifesaver encompassing a hill with the port’s lighthouse hill, known locally as “Cerro del Crestón.” In Mazatlán, the beer is available in four different size bottles: “cuartitos” , “medias” , “ballenas” and “Ballenón” .

Alcohol content: 4.5 percent. “Clara” means clear, blonde, as opposed to “oscura” (dark).

The Pacífico brewery was bought by Mexican brewing giant Grupo Modelo in 1954. The Belgian-Brazilian Anheuser-Busch InBev company currently owns a 50% stake of Grupo Modelo.

Review

Cerveza Pacifico Clara, better known as Pacifico, is a Mexican pilsner-style beer. It is named so because it is from the state of Sinaloa, in Mazatlán on the Pacific coast of Mexico. Its clean and hearty flavour makes this aromatic beer an exceptionally food compatible and suitable for a lot of different occasions. The bright golden colour of this pilsner with a lashing of lemon zest on the nose makes it a great Summer Beer. Enjoyed it well chilled.
