Mexican Beers, Ranked

Mexican Beers, Ranked: Corona/Facebook

Corona/Facebook

FIESTA TIME, PEOPLE. It’s Cinco de Mayo on Tuesday, so we the editors at Playboy used that as an excuse to lock ourselves in a conference room and drink Mexican beer in the middle of the day. It’s how much we care about our readers, that we’ll sacrifice a productive workday like that. We tried each of these brews and rounded up some telling quotes. Here is our definitive—mostly sober—ranking of the beers you’ll be drinking Tuesday.
