Punk rock hot sauce teams up with OC brew


Gringo Bandito hot sauce teams up with Noble Ale Works for a one-night-only event in Anaheim on Oct. 8.

Driven by his love for hot sauce and Mexican food, punk rocker Dexter Holland put the mic down for a bit in 2004 to launch Gringo Bandito, an Orange County-based hot sauce brand that has seen success for 15 years now. Holland, singer for the multi-platinum punk rock band The Offspring, has consistently cultivated the business through hosting fun events, teaming up with other large brands, and developing new hot sauce flavors.

On Oct. 8, Gringo Bandito will pair up with the Anaheim-based Noble Ale Works to launch a special edition watermelon lager that features the original red hot sauce. Noble Ale Works’ popular brew Mexican Candy, a spicy watermelon lager with hot sauce, will receive a makeover in a small batch using Gringo’s original red sauce and will be available on tap and to fill in growlers. 

Get there between 4-7 p.m. to enjoy Mexican Candy and other beer, tacos by Gringos Tacos, music, contests and more.
