CRAFT MEXICAN CERVEZA

MEXICO CALLING

Lager Especial

Some calls are totally worth answering, so kick back and enjoy a Mexican lager brewed with heaps of Vienna malt, subtle hops, and absolutely zero adjuncts. The result is an endlessly refreshing sunny lager with balanced sweetness and light bitterness. Add this to your favorites list.

EL TRAIN

American IPA

Brewed to connect and inspire. We elevated the classic American IPA with a Chicago backbone. Assertive malt character blends with pointed bitterness and floral, piney, and citrus-forward aroma from Chinook, Mosaic, Citra, and Simcoe hops. All aboard the crosstown line!

PALM SHADE

Tropical Pale Ale

Inspired by coastal culture, Palm Shade combines the tropical fruit hop aroma of a modern IPA with the deeply quenching drinkability of a pale ale. Our malt build offers a soft canvas for fruit-forward hops with subtle bitterness and vibrant notes of mandarin orange, mango, and pineapple.

FRUTABOMBA

Juicy Brew IPA

Juicy “fruit bomb” IPA with a delicious tropical combo of Simcoe, Mosaic and Citra Cryo hops. Finished with a summer storm of papaya and mango.

LA FLORIDITA

Sparkling Rosé Ale

For summer, pink is in season. This effervescent wheat ale has a hazy body with rich, fruit color. Liberally doused with tart hibiscus and passionfruit, this sparkling rosé ale drinks easily and offers supreme refreshment.

THREE KINGS

Celebration DIPA

Coming Soon!

Inspired by holiday fruit punch, this festive delight is cheerfully hopped with Citra Wakatu and Citra Cryo, brewed with a touch of lactose and finished with guava and tamarind.

Keep all lines open and flowing

Keep all lines open and flowing is an expression inspired by our crossroads logo; it’s a mantra for making and serving good beer, as well as a reflection of our commitment to sharing and exploring possibilities.

Cruz Blanca makes beers that open people up to new flavors, new ideas, and new experiences. From endlessly refreshing Mexican lagers and sunny IPAs that transport us to warmer places, to the less-travelled roads of barrel-aged and wild fermentation ales, there’s always a journey in the beer that keeps us curious about what’s next.

We’re all at the same long table, and there’s always room for one more. Let’s keep all lines open and flowing.
