If Mole Rojo (pronounced molé roho) were a person, it would almost certainly be <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Most_Interesting_Man_in_the_World
“>The Most Interesting Man in the World. Slow, methodical, and classy, yet with a touch of intrigue. Cool, but never out of style, and telepathically hitting all the right spots.
It’s ironic then, that the inspiration for this red mole came from a beer… but not the one you’re thinking. It all started a few years ago when a reader invited me down to the brewery he works at to check out some beers. Free beer and a chance to meet up with a reader was all the excuse I needed, and I soon found myself headed down to Black Diamond Brewing Co. in Concord, CA.
As it turned out, calling what they make “beer”, is a bit like calling a diamond a pebble. Their ales are brewed, they’re fizzy, and if you drink enough of them, you’ll get drunk, but they have about as much in common with a can of Coors as a diamond shares with the rocks in your backyard.
