Trying Redhook's El Sonido Mexican-style Lager

The 16 oz. cans of Red Hook's El Sonido Mexican-style Lager.

Redhook Brewery, a local brewery in Seattle, sent me two cans of their El Sonido beer to try. The cans are a beautiful color and full of vibrant art. The cans were designed by Victor Melendez, a Seattle-based art director, graphic designer and illustrator. He wanted to represent the spirit of the Mexican culture by creating Alebrijes, Mexican folk art sculptures, on the cans. Striking animals decorate the beer cans.

The cans are cool looking, but how does the beer taste? This is a Mexican-style Lager and the flavor is a little hoppy with a splash of citrus, and has a citrus peel ending. I found it nice and light. The beer pairs well with spicy food. This beer was brewed to support Seattle's artistic community. The name was inspired by KEXP's radio show El Sonido. And on top of all of this, proceeds from the beer benifit SMASH. (Seattle Musicians Access to Sustainable Healthcare).

Thank you to Redhook Brewery for sending me some El Sonido beer!
