Brewer: Cerveza Fauna
Style: Coffee Porter
One of the best dark beers to come out of Baja’s current craft beer revolution, Fauna’s Penelope is a coffee porter that’s easy to toss back, but comes with a jolt. Think: low acid, chocolately goodness, and the dry-dirt aroma of fresh coffee beans. The Mexicali brewery is known for nailing styles and making balanced beers, only some of which get U.S. distribution. Thankfully, Penelope is one of the chosen few.
