Tired of searching... Anybody know if some sort of dark beer is available anyplace around Lakeside or Guad? Prefer something like a stout or porter, but not holding my breath.

You must not have been looking very hard. In addition to the Modelo Negra pictured above, you can get Indio, Leon, Victoria and Dos Equis Negra locally. During the Christmas season, you can also get Noche Buena...my fave.

Club Exotica has Negro Modelo on Tap!  There a few micro brewries in Gualajara, such as Minerva, who make some interesting dark ales,etc.  Check the various Vinos y Licores such as PAZ and Vinos America for those my the bottle.

I like all of the beers mentioned, but I don't really consider any of them a "dark" beer. I'm not into super dark, heavy beers, so can't really help out on locating them.

You can even buy Guinness at Paz. Although I only drink draft Guinness, some people like it.  Beer  Beer  Beer

My fav is Bohemia Oscuro but it is NOT anywhere near as dark as Guinness. That being said, it is a very good beer IMHO. Wasn't there a post earlier about micro breweries, and the new store west of Ajijic offering those? I have not stopped by to check it out, and frankly I can do without beer with cinnamon in it or some fool thing, but a good micro beer would be a real asset to my lifestyle;) I understand that Mexico now allows microbrewed beer--the monopolies are over, yes?

Yeah, I'm not a beer drinker, so I haven't shopped extensively. We have tried the Negra Modelo, which is darker than many, but I'm wanting something you can't see through type dark. The heavier the better. Looking to buy some for a recipe, and I've always used Guinness Stout before. I'll go look at Paz... thanks!

Noche Buena, a bock beer brewed for the holiday season, but you still might find some left over. Paz could still have some since they sell the non-Corona products, or might still be able to get it for you from their distributor.

Minerva Stout available at Walmart (sometimes) is the microbrew you are looking for. It taste more like a porter than most stouts. Give it a try not cheap 135P a sixpack. For
cheap Noche Buena is pretty good in Season. Out of all the other dark beers I like Negra
Modelo best. Many folks like Indio. Tastes weird to me.

Unless he has started again he has not brewed much lately. Which is too bad.

Is Dark Beer Available Anywhere? Empty Minerva Stout is my favorite

Minerva Stout is my favorite, but is not always available lakeside. You can get it in Guad at a couple of places, in addition to buying it at the Minerva businesses offices.
You can also find a variety of Mexican micro-brews and imported beers at Wing's Army. But, they tend to be pricy. I paid $100mx for a British Chocolate Stout .... good to the last drop.

If anyone is interested, I published an article on microbrews a couple of years ago for Judy King's on-line magazine. It's now a bit dated because we lost our best local resource for microbrews, El Figon. But, it gives some stores in Guad where you can find good beer and a few other resources. You can send me a PM, and an email address, and I'll be glad to send you a copy of the article.

There is INDIO, a dark reddish brown beer!

there is a joke about the meeting between Obama and Calderon. At refreshment time,Obama says"quieres una Cerveza,Indio?. Calderon replies,quieres un cafe, negro?

Don't know if I heard that one here?

Noche Buena is a Modelo product as is Corona.

It appears that you guys may have led a sheltered life .... go over to Wing's Army and explore! And, if you like a light lager, I understand they have a 2 for 1 night .... might be Thursday!

Ah yes but...if I drank Guinness here, I would not have any reason to go to England, and thus I would not travel and travel is...burp...broadening in so many ways!

Their burgers or grilled chicken sands are pretty good as are there fries.   Check their specials, they 2 fer 1 on something most days.
