As much as I would love for this post to go into a short history lesson of German beers and brewing in our Sunny Neighbor to the South, but MIA did name this beer after a classic Knack song. Which is why I had to sing this after ordering M.I.A. Sharona (Mexican Lager, 5.1% ABV):
Earworm central, my friends. And the solo starting at 2:43 really is something.
But I gave the beer a chance and I’m glad I did since the beer was pretty solid. There’s a great light body to it, but has a good solid sweetness to it due to the use of maize. Mexican lager yeast and a light dusting of Hallertauer hops round out an unexpectedly flavorful beer.
It’s a pretty good brew, simple and unassuming but fantastically flavorful.
And it comes with its own soundtrack.
