Chopping Wood - Mexican Lager
A Note on This Beer
You’ve ordered a red sauce and guacamole-smothered carne asada burrito the size of your face. The smell of roasted chili peppers and charred meat makes your mouth water.
Now, it’s time to crack the tab on a frosty cold can of today’s Mexican Lager to REALLY begin your tasting adventure.
The light crackery aromas of Perle, Tettnanger, and Spalt Spalter Hops in the brew complement the dish’s slightly smoky, umami flavors. A corn and barley foundation meld together to build a faint Kix cereal sweetness and sublimely soft mouthfeel that makes each gulp beyond thirst-quenching. If you like, add a fresh squeeze of lime to impart a touch of juiciness to the Lager’s subtly dry finish.
A few complex sips, and your burrito is completely elevated from the ordinary to a dish you won’t soon forget, all thanks to this luscious Lager.
It’s not quite magic, it’s Chopping Wood Mexican Lager — the latest creation from the creative, PorchDrinking-lauded brewers at Mountains Walking — and the key to your next transformative craft experience!

Simply refreshing lager.
16oz can from Tavour. Clear, pale golden pour with a lasting white one finger fluffy head. Clean, malty, grainy aroma. Taste follows with more of the biscuity malts. If there is corn in here, it is light and brings a slight sweetness to the brew. Smooth and tasty.
Nice & refreshing on a warm day!
Nice refreshing lager. Not too light actually, really nice malty flavor.
Smooth and snappy but nothing made it stand out as a Mexican lager and the body was almost that of a helles, rather than trending to a more traditional grist bill.
Add a little salt and lime and it makes it even better. A smooth drinking lager in which the corn taste truly comes through.
Normally I don’t go for a lager but seeing that this was an iteration by Mountains walking I decided to give it a try. Very crisp and refreshing, nice subtle malt and corn with a bright and snappy body. Glad I decided to give this one a try.
Light, clean, crisp, what more do you want? This is just a really nice Mexican Lager and an awesome summertime beer.
sweet, with a hoppy and crisp finish.
low abv and nice light taste
Welcomingly flavorful for a 4.8% lager
Good Mexican Lager aromas. Mexican Lagers are actually one of my least favorite styles of beer, but this does a good job. The macro brewery scene for Mexican Lagers really ruins the style for me, but this is nice and clean and straight forward. No off oxidized flavors. Clean color. Great head. Honestly, I’d take this over any Mexican Lager on the market, any day.
Smooth and crisp, this beer is perfectly refreshing for a hot summer day spent grilling. Enjoyed it with some carne adobada tacos and eloté.
suppppper smooooooth!!! and pairs great with sunshine, tacos and quad!
