Lagartos Red Ale
This version of Red Ale has more caramel character, strength, and sweetness. An export-style red with a chewy body and slightly sweet balance. Caramel and toast flavors provide significant malt character. Rich, chewy malt with a caramel and toast flavor. Reddish copper color. Light grainy dryness in the finish from the roasted barley without a noticeable roast quality.
History: In 1889, a park commissioner added a young alligator to the pond in the center of downtown El Paso’s San Jacinto Plaza. Several more alligators joined in the decades that followed, and “Los Lagartos” of San Jacinto became an El Paso institution until 1965.
Food Pairings: Great with a wide range of food: chicken, seafood, burgers, and spicy cuisine.
