Let's Go Clandestino

CULINARY FOCUSED TOURS OF BAJA CALIFORNIA

EXPO CERVEZA ARTESANAL

AT THE MOST RECENT WORLD BEER CUP LAST MONTH CERVECERIA AGUA MALA WON A SILVER MEDAL FOR THEIR ASTILLERO IPA IN THE IMPERIAL IPA CATEGORY. THERE COULD NOT HAVE BEEN A MORE APPROPRIATE TIME FOR A BREWERY FROM BAJA CALIFORNIA TO WIN AN WARD LIKE THIS, GIVEN THAT THE MEXICAN CRAFT BEER SCENE IS FINALLY STARTING TO BE RECOGNIZED FOR PRODUCING QUALITY CRAFT BEER NOT JUST IN MEXICO BUT IN THE UNITED STATES. IF THE SPOTLIGHT WAS NOT PLACED ON MEXICAN CRAFT BEER, WELL NOW IT IS AND BAJA CALIFORNIA IS AT THE FOREFRONT OF THIS CRAFT BEER MOVEMENT. 

 

THE EXPO CERVEZA ARTESANAL IS A TWO DAY BEER FESTIVAL SHOWCASING SOME OF THE BEST MEXICAN CRAFT BREWERIES SURROUNDING THE BORDER REGION OF BAJA CALIFORNIA. HOSTED BY BCB TASTING ROOM OWNER RUBEN VALENZUELA, THIS EVENT WILL HAVE OVER 35 BAJA BREWERIES AS WELL AS 15 LOCAL RESTAURANTS, LIVE MUSIC AND WILL BE HELD IN FRONT OF THE MERCADO HIDALGO. SOME OF THE LOCAL BREWERIES FROM TIJUANA THAT HAVE ESTABLISHED A STRONG HOLD IN THE BREWING COMMUNITY ARE INSURGENTE, BORDER PSYCHO, SILENUS, MUÑECA PRIETA… TO NAME A FEW. 

 

OUR PRE-FESTIVAL LUNCH WILL TAKE PLACE AT LA JUSTINA, A NEW RESTAURANT ON AVENIDA REVOLUCION IN THE SAME BUILDING WHERE THE INFAMOUS CAFE LA ESPECIAL USED TO RESIDE. OWNED AND OPERATED BY RENOWNED CHEF CHAD WHITE,  WILL BE SERVING US HIS OWN TAKE ON TRADITIONAL MEXICAN DISHES. THIS RESTAURANT IS CONTRIBUTING TO THE REVOLUTION OF TIJUANA'S FOOD MOVEMENT AND THE TRANSFORMATION OF AVENIDA REVOLUCION, WHERE CRAFT BREWERIES AND GOURMET RESTAURANTS WILL BE APPEARING MORE OFTEN IN THE YEARS TO COME!
