Based on grainy, inconclusive evidence, the person could be El Chapo, and the bottle could be a beer bottle. Which is enough for us to pose the question here at Thrillist HQ: what is the preferred brewski of freedom for world's most-wanted drug trafficker?
Some brown-glass guesses:
- Dos Equis Amber: Currently, El Chapo is the Most Interesting Man in The World, so it sorta makes sense?
- Pacifico Clara
- Tecate: Made by the giant Mexican brewery behind Dos Equis & Sol, this popular canned beer north of the border is also available in a less-common longneck.
- Russian River Pliny The Elder: Maybe he's an IPA-loving beer snob! California's right there, and Guzman clearly isn't the sort of person who's daunted at the prospect of handling hard to get substances. It could happen!
What kind of beer would you request for your first swig of outlaw freedom? Personally, I'd go with a Left Hand Milk Stout Nitro, but I'm not sure how well that would keep in the hot Mexican sun.
