Peter Rowe wrote a great piece on Cucapá, a small brewery in Mexicali for the Union-Tribune recently.
The article profiles the brewery and describes some of the problems they face due to Mexico’s beer culture. I’ve seen Cucapá’s beers in the US far more often than I have seen them in Mexico.
It’s not too hard to find Cucapá Obscura, Cucapá Honey or Chupacabras Pale Ale in San Diego. And the article mentions some new beers the brewery recently release or will release soon: La Migra Imperial Stout, Runaway IPA, Lowrider Rye Ale, Green Card Barleywine, and Tequila Barrel barrel-aged Barleywine.
Many of these beers will be available at the Tijuana International Beer Festival, happening July 16th and 17th (more on that soon).
