#18: American Michelada


About this episode

It's hot, the world is nuts — but inside RFFP, we're mixing up a refreshing, delicious, ice-cold beer cocktail from Mexico: the michelada.

So leave the dog days of summer behind, and join us on a journey in search of the definition of the American Michelada — from its origins in Mexico, to its present as an emerging player in American big beer, to its possible future — through the lens of some LA miche hitters who know the drink best.

Featuring: Fernando Lopez and Kristene Garcia from I Love Micheladas, Cesar Hernandez and Memo Torres (a.k.a. "El Tragon de Los Angeles") from LA Taco, and a whole lot of michelada fun.
