Beerland winner Jessica Fierro's beer honors her Mexican roots.

Tamarind is a tropical fruit that is found throughout Mexico and this beer from Golden Road Brewery in Los Angeles, California, incorporates the popular pod-like fruit. Colorado Springs homebrewer Jessica Fierro was selected as the winner of the Viceland homebrewing competition television show, Beerland. Her tamarind Bière de Garde (a strong pale ale traditionally brewed in northern France) is an homage to Fierro's grandmother, Ernestina Martinez, known as Doña Neta, who used to make tamarind candy.
