Stone Brewing Buenaveza Salt and Lime Lager Review

Clean, refreshing, crisp lager isn't Stone's usual M.O., but they've impressed with this Mexican-style lager that is all of those things (and more!). The character of the bad-boy brewery comes in with just a spritz of lime flavor that gives me Corona-and-lime vibes without tasting skunked (like Corona) or artificial (like other brewers' lime additions in this beer style).

Inspired by the Southern California heat and the flavors of the region's close neighbors to the south, this is the beer I imagine packing in the back seat of my Jeep with my healthy, beautiful surfing buddies as we drive at dawn to hit the swells. A more realistic scenario might see me sipping this whilst stuck to a pool float at that one friend's mom's house that has a pool; or by the dock on a much awaited lake trip.
