where to find hand-crafted beers
If you're a beer lover, one of the first things you'll notice is that most of the restaurants and bars in San Miguel sell only Corona-owned brands, like Corona, Victoria, Pacifico, Negra Modelo, Modelo Especial, Modelo Light, Estrella and Leon. If you're in the mood for something different, the Limerick Bar has imported beers. Casa de Aves has their own brewery where they make their proprietary Dos Aves. (The owner of Casa de Aves is so passionate about beer making that he has established the Beer School in San Miguel de Allende.) Here are some other places you might want to try:
