Buffalo, NY — 42 North Brewing Company and Deep South Taco have teamed up to produce LuchaBrew, an authentic Mexican-style lager. Luchabrew pays tribute to the colorful ‘free style’ form of wrestling know as Lucha Libre which originated in Mexico in the early 1900’s.
LuchaBrew will be exclusively available at the Deep South Taco’s location on Ellicott Street, it’s newest location opening on Hertel Avenue, and the taproom of 42 North in East Aurora. “This beer was specifically crafted for Deep South Taco,” stated 42 North’s Chief Brewing Officer, Clay Keel. “The LucaBrew is a true collaboration with Deep South Taco. We went through a number of recipes until, together, we identified the ideal beer to complement the innovative menu at Deep South Taco.”
Richard Hamilton, owner of Deep South Taco adds, “This is a natural partnership. Both companies share the same core values and are focused on quality, authenticity, and collaborating with the local community.”
The LuchaBrew is an amber lager brewed like the early Vienna-style beers that German immigrants brought to Mexico in the mid-19th century. It boasts a nice balanced malt bill with some honey and caramel notes blended with the soft lemon-spice of German noble hops that finishes smooth and crisp. ABV: 4.8% IBU: 28 SRM: 6.5
