We would like to share with you our passion for Craft Beer. We have been foodies ever since we can remember, and for us Craft Beer is an extension of food. We have found an industry that is really more of a community, a culture all its own. And that culture is Craft Beer. It is beer that has a story, it is beer that has a purpose, diversity, detail and history. But more than that, it is an opportunity to build a better community. We need people who are willing to stand up for better ideas, and the solution is simple if you want better businesses and better communities: Just do it. Be a better business, make a better product, contribute to building a better community.
A lot of people want to know, what is Craft Beer? What makes it so different, so special? It’s not about how many gallons are produced or how long you’ve been around. What makes Craft Beer so special, so important is that with every sip you take, you can taste the full intent, history and purpose of the people who made it and shared it with you.

WHAT IS YOUR FLAGSHIP BREW?
The flagship beer will be the “Chiltepín Red Ale”, a unique twist to a red ale, brewed with spicy Sonoran chiltepíns and fresh lime peel.
If you are not familiar with chile lore, chiltepíns are small, fiery, round peppers that are found in Arizona, Texas and Mexico. They are the subject of many legends, stories and myths in the area, both in Mexico and the United States. The chiltepín is not just the primordial pepper but also an integral part of the social, cultural, and economic fabric and an incredibly addictive spice in its own right.
