Does anybody know of a Chicago area restaurant (or store, etc.) that makes and sells tesguino? I tried Googling "tesguino Chicago" and in one of those 'so smart it's daft' artificial intelligence quirks, Google returns hits for tepache in Chicago, but no hits for tesguino. And oddly, it doesn't even cross-out tesguino in the list of word hits: it simply replaces it with tepache. For the confused, they are both fermented beverages indigenous to Mexico and further south, and imbibed for centuries. Tesguino is essentially a beer--made with malted corn, while the more commonly available (and easier to make) tepache is based-on pineapple rind. Pulque, made from Agave, is yet another in this class of low-alcohol, fermented beverages of the southern Americas.
