|MateVeza & Friends
We hope that the feats of flavor bestowed upon you by the world’s most versatile beverage left you as gleefully giddy as we are. And remember, folks, DO try this at home!

| Morpho Herbal Ale from MateVeza and
Mill Valley Beerworks
An organic ale brewed with yerba mate, hibiscus flowers and bay leaves. A collaboration with Mill Valley Beerworks, MateVeza’s newest limited release is an ode to the Morpho butterfly of South America. With hints of tropical flora from hibiscus, the lemony herbal notes of bay leaves, and an earthy dry yerba mate finish, this is the perfect beer to wake up those taste buds.
