Happy Cinco de Mayo from the Windowsill to you!

Let’s talk about the Lechuza. No, not the stout, the animal at the forefront of a pretty creepy Mexican leyenda. Lechuza means owl. The leyenda speaks of a witch named La Lechuza, for the shapeshifting powers that allowed her to turn herself into an owl. There are many origin stories for the leyenda, but one of them says that she is seeking revenge for the death of her child at the hands of a drunk. At the end of the night, she hangs out near bars, looking for the last drunk to walk out so she can take them. They’re never seen alive again. Interesting that the only people reporting this giant owl woman are the dudes closing out the bars, but i digress. She also steals children who are allowed to play alone at night, so be careful kiddies!

Now let’s talk about the La Lechuza S’more Stout. It’s a no-longer-in-production stout from Dallas, Texas’ Four Corners Brewing Company. It’s a dry stout brewed with cinnamon, graham crackers and chocolate malts (hence the S’mores). The aroma hits you with some good cocoa and cinnamon, like Mexican chocolate. Pretty chocolaty on the palate, too, with a little kick from the cinnamon. It’s not sweet, though, and only slightly creamy. Pretty solid brew for sitting around a campfire telling stories of La Lechuza! Check out how the can opens, too!
