Combine the lime juice, Worcestershire sauce, hot sauce and a pinch of salt in a tall glass. Fill the glass halfway with ice, then pour in the beer and stir. Serve with a lime wedge.

Hot:

This beer cocktail calls for any kind of hot sauce, so choose your favorite. We like Cholula and Valentina.

Hotter:

Mix equal parts kosher salt and chipotle chile powder. Moisten the rim of the glass with a lime wedge, then dip in the chile salt. Mix in the michelada as directed.

Hottest:

Rim the glass with chile salt (see above). Muddle 1 or 2 thin slices serrano chile pepper with the lime juice in the glass, then mix in the remaining ingredients as directed.
