West Sixth Brewing has announced its newest beer in cans: the West Sixth Cerveza. In the style of a Mexican Lager, West Sixth Cerveza is crisp with a pleasant cracker like malt character with notes of corn and a low amount of hops to create a quenching and sessionable lager.
“We’re incredibly excited to announce this newest canned offering,” said co-founder Brady Barlow. “It’s been almost a year since we introduced a new beer into a can, and our fans have been asking for this one for a while.”
Weighing in at 4.6% ABV, and hopped with German noble hops, this beer is sure to quench anyone’s thirst. West Sixth Cerveza will be available throughout Kentucky and into Cincinnati, OH in late February, and will be a year-round offering. It will be available through West Sixth’s distribution partners in 6-packs and on draft.
“It’s so easy drinking that it’s one of our staff favorites,” said West Sixth co-founder Ben Self. “It’s one of those beers that will be perfect no matter what food you’re eating or activity it’s accompanying.”
As with all of West Sixth’s cans, this one was designed by Lexington print and design shop Cricket Press.
“There was a lot of excitement about this can release, not only because it has been a staff favorite, but also because of the reception it has received on draft at the taproom and other locations that offer West Sixth beers,” said Cricket Press co-owner Brian Turner. “We wanted this can design to stand out from our current canned offerings, but also give a nod to some of the classic colors and graphics that are characteristic of Mexican lager styles. To explore this further, we added a Papel picado motif (Mexican folk art cut-paper flags) to anchor the West Sixth branding.”
