Mictlan

"For this project, we were instructed to design a beverage of our choice. I decided to design a beer based on the beautiful graphics, colors, and history of The Day of the Dead. My beer is called Mictlan, named after the Aztec underworld where the spirits of the deceased would travel to find eternal rest. The journey to get there took four long years, and families of the departed would send them on their way with lavish celebrations of food, drinks, and flowers. Today, Dia de los muertos is celebrated in early November to honor deceased loved ones. Mictlan was designed with these sentiments in mind. It is a beer with which to toast life, but also to remind us that life is short, and that we must make the most of it while we can."
