History on the Michelada

A Michelada became popular back in the 1940’s when people began to mix beer with salsa or hot sauce. They are said to be comparable to a Bloody mary which is why, in Mexico, they’re considered good hangover remedies.

There are many varieties of Micheladas and some people even prefer to add oranges.

Additionally, due to growing popularity of prepared beers, many major US beer producers have begun marketing cervezas preparadas (prepared beers). A great example of this is Miller Brewing Co producing “Miller Chill” which is a “Chelada-style light lager with a hint of salt and lime.”
