As a special treat, we're celebrating the release of this brew with a Beer Cocktail Survey at The U.R.B.!  Try a sampler of the popular Michelada - a blend of lime juice plus other spicy and savory additions with our Castaña Urbana. And after you take the survey, pick up a 4pack of Castaña to try out your own Michelada recipe at home.

Our Favorite Michelada Recipe:

3 oz fresh lime juice (reserve half of a juiced lime for the rim)
2.5 tsp Valentina hot sauce
1.25 tsp Worchestershire
16oz can of your favorite Mexican Lager (we prefer Castaña Urbana, of course!)

Pour some Tajín in a small shallow dish. Rim your glass with the reserved cut lime. Dip the rim in the Tajín and set right side up.

Add the lime juice, hot sauce, and Worchestershire sauce to a glass. Add a pinch of salt and fill the glass with ice. Top with beer. Serve with remaining beer, topping up as you drink.
