“We’re thrilled to create more good times with Belching Beaver and Buenos Tiempos, the Official Beer of the California 300!” said California 300 CEO Matt Martelli. “A can of Buenos Tiempos is the perfect reward for finishers of the race, and it got rave reviews when it made its debut last year. This year, we created a limited-edition run with the California 300 artwork with last year’s Unlimited Truck winner Cayden MacCachren. From its name and packaging to its delicious and refreshing taste, there’s no more fitting beer out there to represent The Great Golden State Off-Road Race!”

The best beer in your life is the one you have after crossing the finish line at an off-road race! It’s part of off-road culture, and for the past 50+ years, it has been a tradition at most off-road races. Whether you have just finished a long race or a long workday, you’ve earned this one! Enjoy this Mexican-style lager appropriately named “Buenos Tiempos,” which means “good times”—an acknowledgment that off-road culture exists on both sides of the border.

“We love being a part of off-road racing culture. After a long hot, tough, dirty race an ice-cold beer is the perfect reward, and Buenos Tiempos is the perfect beer. Not heavy, nice and crisp, but still has the Mexican lager flavor we all love. A better version of traditional Mexican-style lagers. It tastes like a vacation!” stated Belching Beaver CEO Tom Vogel.

Launched in 2012, Belching Beaver Brewery evolved from a desire to make great beer and have a ‘Dam Good Time’ doing it. The award-winning craft beer company is focused on two things: First, have a brand that offers quality craft beer, while also being whimsical and fun to inspire good times. Each Belching Beaver beer release carries its own individual style and personality. Second, make beer for everyone and all palates. From easy-drinking Blondes, Triple IPAs, Milk Stouts, Imperial Stouts as well as sours and barrel-aged beers, Belching Beaver Brewery has it!
