Whether you're hosting a festive Cinco de Mayo party or have mellower plans, including frosty bottles of Mexican beer is an easy, refreshing, and perfectly on-theme way to round out your South-of-the-border spread. From light and crisp (read: compulsively drinkable) to thicker-bodied malty brews, there's a cerveza for nearly any taste. Here are three of our go-tos.
Our day-drinking pick, Tecate is exceptionally light and easy to drink. Though critics may call it watery, we think it's utterly refreshing and a solid choice if balmy temperatures are in your forecast this Cinco de Mayo. For extra freshness, try it with a squeeze of lime, or, if spicy is more your style, doctor a can up michelada-style.

Every politician needs some luck of the Irish sometimes, and that often comes in the form of beer. While enjoying a basketball game or conducting international diplomacy, there's nothing like beer to loosen up a politico. Plus, cheers-ing your constituents on the campaign trail is a classic move to show you're a man or woman of the people. St. Paddy's Day, which falls on Sunday, calls for some suds. So to get you in the spirit, check out politicians like President Barack Obama, who drank Guinness in Ireland with Michelle, or President George W. Bush, who threw back a nonalcoholic version in Germany, enjoying some beer.
St. Patrick's Day is tomorrow, and the Irish holiday just wouldn't be the same without a pint of Guinness in hand. You may have mastered the stout's double pour, but what do you know about the history of this legendary beer brand? Take the quiz to find out!
