BC Beer Baron #281 – Bad Tattoo Los Muertos Cerveza Negra

While hunting for beers to use during the Sip Advisor’s annual beer pong tournament, I decided to pick up Bad Tattoo Brewing’s Flash Pack case. The set includes this great beer, which I remember enjoying a couple years back on my very first visit to Bad Tattoo’s Penticton tasting room.

The Los Muertos Cerveza Negra is a crisp and refreshing dark lager. The 5% ABV, 25 IBUs beverage uses three different malts (Pilsner, Crystal, and Munich) to achieve their desired results. As the company writes: “It is reminiscent of a light German Bock, but with a Mexican twist.” I love the label work on this beer, as well as Bad Tattoo’s entire lineup.

The Cerveza Negra is available in bomber-sized bottles, as well as the aforementioned Flash Pack. The case also includes the brewery’s Tramp Stamp Pale Ale, West Coast IPA, and True Love Kolsch (seasonal). I thought the collection was pretty diverse and enjoyed the variety of different products.

The brew received of a silver medal at the 2015 Canadian Brewing Awards in the North American Style Amber Lager category. Following up on that success, Bad Tattoo also released the Dia De Los Muertos Cerveza Fuerte (a Belgian-style Abbey Ale) to go along with the Day of the Dead theme.
