Perhaps this is because of the availability of shine.

Interesting. I'll have to try this sometime. My buddy loves Tequiza, and usually we'll split a sixer every now and again.

They still sell tequiza in the stores here. I always figured that it was Bud's "Corona fighter"... everybody's always stuffin' limes down the neck, Bud figured they'd create a product where that's already done for you. Now that Bud's got Landshark (is that stuff nationwide yet? I know when they first started distributing it, it was mostly here in FL and in Buffett's bars), I kinda wonder if that'll be the "corona fighter" and Tequiza will be phazed out....

Wow, I guess it could be worse, it could have been Zima...

Modified the original recipe just a bit and as far as I can remember the taste is spot on

3 lbs light dme
1 lb med dme
1 lb flaked corn
3 lbs less 2 oz agave nectar
1 oz cascade pellets (in hop sack full time boil)
1 oz herzbrucker hallertauer whole hops (last 10 mins)
wyeast 1007 from a 1 qt starter (2C malt) - german ale
3-4 limes or lime juice at bottling (1 used one of the lime shaped plastic containers of lime juice)
1 tsp irish moss for clarity -end of boil
tequila - 16 ounces of Cuervo Gold® for flavor at bottling

Came out almost identical to what I remember tequiza to taste like. No flames please, I know many don't consider tequiza to be real beer

It wasn't the worst thing I ever drank but I haven't ever missed it.
