Our Horchata White Ale was crafted as an homage to the famous drink of taquerias across Latin America — and envisioned as the perfect beer pairing for tacos. It also happens that Taco is the name of our Sales Manager’s cat. So, when it came time to name the beer, the idea of a “taco beer” and Taco the Cat naturally aligned. That’s him on the label with the piercing green eyes, dressed in his finest charro suit.
El Gato incorporates all the traditional Horchata ingredients into a wheat ale base – along with a healthy dose of milk sugar. An addition of rice in the grain bill lightens the body for excellent drinkability, without sacrificing its creamy mouthfeel. The beer features an enticing aroma of freshly baked cinnamon roll. It pours a milky straw color, and finishes with just the right blend of vanilla sweetness and a touch of spice. Show Less
