Las Pilas

We teamed up with the Ohio Hispanic Coalition and artist Ariel Peguero (@apegdesign) to bring you Las Pilas - a Mexican Dark Lager with Plantains. Inspired by the maduros served throughout the Caribbean and Latin America, this beer is brewed with Olotillo Mexican heirloom corn and swaps caramelized plantains in place of caramel malt, resulting in a slightly sweet yet crisp dark lager. Las Pilas is derived from the phrase “ponte las pilas” or "put on batteries" - a motivational saying referential to the ingenuity and resourcefulness of the Latino/Hispanic community. Proceeds from this beer proudly benefit the Ohio Hispanic Coalition.
