The first Oktoberfest marked Prince Ludwig's marriage to Princess Therese; it was so much fun that it evolved into an annual celebration of German food and culture. Mexico has a long tradition of producing beer. It is said to have had the first commercial brewery in the New World (in the 1500s) and has been making lagers since 1880s or 1890s. Corona still enjoys a bit of a following in the U.S. which is funny because it is made as cheaply as possible so it can be sold inexpensively to manual workers in Mexico. Every Mexican brewery has a product in its portfolio. Some of the best Mexican beers are the chocolatety Negro Modelo, which is perfect with chicken mole, the dark reddish amber Dos Equis, and Nochebuena. In Mexico, beer is still sometimes served at room temperature which is especially good for the heartier beers. Lighter bodied beers are better served chilled.
