I was just in downtown Naperville and passed Front Street Cantina and they where advertising Victoria Beer aggressively, hopefully they still have it. Good luck

Front Street Cantina Naperville "Thanks to all who came out this weekend and help us kick off Victoria beer on draft. It was a huge success!" ...

Where are you trying to get the beer to? And is it good beer, or you want it cuz you can't have it?
This btw,
At Mercadito, they begin with a tall, salt-rimmed glass filled with ice. Worcestershire sauce is followed by fresh lime juice; then a shot of hot sauce. The beer is poured until the glass is filled, and it's garnished with a fresh lime.

does not appeal to me right off the bat, just sounds wrong. But if it can hang with XX or Tecate it has it's place then.

I would like to try a couple of these straight up because the Vienna lager
is high up on my list of good (to me) beer styles.  I love Negra Modelo
and it is difficult to get Victoria.  I am trying to get to central wyoming.
