Denver Taco Festival presents:
Mexico in a bottle.
A celebration of Mexican agave spirits and craft beer for you to enjoy. Mexico in a bottle is an event within an event. Attendees at the Denver Taco Festival will have the opportunity to enter an exclusive area to taste an amazing array of tequila, mezcal, Mexican craft beers, talk to experts, and engage in hands on special programming.
Mexican craft agave spirits and beer are the embodiment of Mexico. Agave spirits are more than just a beverage, they represent more than 500 years of history and culture. Mezcal’s story isn’t just about alcohol, each bottle contains a piece of Mexican culture, and is a living link to history, tradition, art, and music. It is life and death all in a bottle. Mexico in a Bottle celebrates that identity.
