AZ Craft Beer Awards & Festival Beer Review 15: Vamonos

Let’s go! This Mexican style Vienna lager from The Beer Research Institute will make you and some friends want to vamonos to Mesa.

Light and refreshing, this one is almost nitro-like smooth on the finish and would pair nicely with the spicy food served up at the BRI brewpub location on Stapley and the U.S. 60. BRI’s newest location is a taproom with old school arcade games on Main Street in Downtown Mesa. Bring some cash for game tokens and enjoy the wide variety of BRI beer styles on draft. Just don’t break my high score on Tapper.
