MEXICAN-STYLE DARK LAGER
California Gray Whales (Eschrichtius robustus) endure the longest migration of any mammal on earth, 10,000–12,000 miles round trip, between their summer feeding grounds in the Arctic and their winter calving lagoons in Baja California. Twice each year, these gentle giants swim past our doorstep here on the Mendocino Coast, affording us a priceless up-close look at spouts and flukes just beyond the surf, connecting us in an essential way to them and their epic voyage. Laguna Baja refers collectively to the termini of the whales’ southern migration—the placid waters of Baja’s San Ignacio Lagoon, Ojo De Liebre Lagoon, and Magdalena Bay.
Laguna Baja is a classically styled Vienna lager (in the Mexican mode), rich dark amber, with a malty aroma and a full, creamy body.
