Popular east side eatery Tacos Pipeye at 217 North Milpas Street, known in part for using handmade corn tortillas for their tacos, is planning to adding beer to their menu soon. Which leads to the question: what beer goes best with Mexican food? For tacos with a base of light and bright seafood like grilled fish and shrimp, there are a few craft beers that work like Mexican Lagers. I read that American lagers, Hefeweizens, and California Pale Ales give the similar easy-to-drink, spice-diluting, palate-cleansing effect of Mexican beers. However, if you prefer beer battered and Baja style fish tacos, a Pilsner, Belgian Wit, or American IPA is reportedly the best match.
