National Michelada Day is on July 12th and what better way to celebrate than with an authentic Mexican beer salt company, Twang! The Michelada is one of Mexico's most popular drinks, and one of the most fun to make. Some would describe it as a Bloody Mary made with beer instead of vodka, but it's so much more. In Mexico, the traditional michelada, also known as chelada, consists of a light-bodied beer seasoned with fresh lime juice, served over ice in a salt-rimmed glass, which goes down easily on a hot summer day. But many variations exist, and there are many recipes. Twang, the Latino-owned company that has pioneered beer salt’s acceptance for people all over the US, has made “dressing your beer” a common practice. They have created a whole new meaning for salt-rimmed cocktails with their beer salt! Below they share a virgin and non-virgin recipe for their famous micheladas and how to dress them.
Now you can enjoy our all natural, small batch michelada recipe created from 7 vegetable juices, organic Worcestershire sauce, real lime juice, ancho chilis and our unique blend of seasonings created to make a michelada without any artificial ingredients. Simply Add to Beer!

In 1986, Twang Founder Roger Treviño left his career to embark into the food industry, where he experienced an epiphany on a business trip in Mexico. While visiting a Mexican street vendor selling citrus salt, he was reminded of his childhood growing up in San Antonio with an abundance of Latino flavors. Treviño returned home inspired to create a variety of flavored salts to share with friends and family. His first product and claim to fame was beer salt, an integral product of the Southern trend of dressing beers and other libations. Twang started out of his garage with the Treviño children enlisted to help.
