On December 19, 2014, a young man by the name of Gabriel Medina became the first South American man to be the world surfing champion. When he won, a swarm of tanned legs and Brazilian flags stormed the Hawaiian beach. They picked up Medina. It was a great celebration. Almost anyone anywhere in the world with a computer or smart phone could have watched this happen live from the Bonzai Pipeline in Hawaii.

This company sponsors the World Surf League making it possible for these events to be available live. You can watch it all live, and videos of all the heats are available on youtube. Even the women's competition has full coverage. The sponsorship of Pacifico Cerveza helps to make this possible.

I love surfing so when I saw this on the shelf in the supermarket the other day I picked it up. The first thing you notice is the color. It has a clear rich golden color like the sands of Ipanama. When you pour it out, it develops a very decent white head. It's a thing of beauty. It's not heavy, and it doesn't have a strong taste, and it's not going to fill you up. With only a 4.5% alcohol level you can drink plenty of these on a hot day on the beach and still be coherent enough to shoot the curl.

This is going to be my beer for the summer of 2015.

I drank this coming straight off a Negra Modelo, so perhaps my rating will be a bit skewed. I actually thought this was a pretty good beer, with a malty kick and good mouthfeel. With moderate carbonation and a golden color sprouting a white head, the beer looked and tasted above average to me. Now, is that because I already had two Negra Modelos before I tried this? Perhaps, but as of now, I'm giving it a half decent rating.

Pretty standard AAL. Cardboard and malt. Only drinkable extremely cold. A good beer to drink with spice Mexican food. Also doesn't hurt when you buy a case of these for under $15.
