On May 5, 1862, Mexican forces defeated forces of the Second French Empire at the Battle of Puebla. This is not Mexico’s Independence Day (that would be September 16, 1810, commemorating a war of independence from a totally different European-colonialist power) – but it was a turning point in Mexico’s war to expel French invaders.
Celebrating Cinco de Mayo took off in the United States in the 1980s, in large part thanks to massive advertising pushes from beer and tequila companies – which is where we come in.
Come on by the taproom to celebrate Cinco in style with:
- Special beers on draft, including:
- Cantina Crusher – light lager with jalapeno, poblano, habanero, and pineapple
- Baja Jaja – fruited blonde ale with pineapple and peach
- Cinco Flight, with Cantina Crusher, Baja Jaja, Spa Day (mojito-inspired hard seltzer) and Gold Lime (Neponset Gold with lime, shandy-style)
- Margarita-style DOTtails (featuring the fabulous tastes of our friends Simple Sips)
- Food specials from M&M BBQ
