Bienvenido, loyal reader. As most of you know, beer is very close to the hearts of Bruce and Mary. So, they are compelled to bring you a beer update. Cheers!
I’m about to go inside with my deposito for another case of our house beer, Pacifico. We had been happy with our old beer store, Xuper Cosas (click on the hot link if you’d like a brief overview of beer in Mexico) until one day we stopped there and found them clausurado, closed. According to the banner across the door, the city had shut them down. Well, faced with a beer emergency and scratching our heads, a passing local took pity on us and led us a block up the street to Licoreria Pinto. We must have walked by it a hundred times without noticing it. And we were pleased that not only had they not been shut down by the city sting (a lot of joints were) they were even cheaper!
Jaciel at the ready. Whenever we walk in the store, Jaciel, without a word, grabs a case of Pacifico, takes my deposito off my cart and helps me strap the fresh case in. BTW: A case of Pacifico, after a recent price increase, is 187P al tiempo, room temp, or 195 frio, from the cooler. They offer delivery for 20P anywhere in PV and even Mismaloya. If you order 5 cases or more the fee is waived and yes we have actually seen Jaciel on the street with 5 cases of beer on his back. Que forte!
And what beer store would be complete without an assortment of snacks?
Mary is settling up with Johanna, la dueña, the owner, and her right hand man Jaciel. BTW: Johana does speak English, but we enjoy practicing our Espanol with her, as she is muy amable.
Thanks for visiting, gentle reader. Bruce and Mary think they have found the cheapest beer in Old Town but they could be wrong (and often are) so please feel free in setting them straight. And a Happy Cinco de Mayo to all! Hasta proxima Domingo!
