The Brew that is True: Baja's New Take on Cerveza

A new "green" business in Baja, full of flavors

The only sad note to this beer revelry is that none of these beers are currently available in the U.S., so I recommend you choose your beers wisely as you can only take home about three bottles per person across the border.

Where can you find these beers in their local habitat?

Here is where you might find some of northern Baja's favorite beers, in restaurants and pubs throughout the region.

For more information on any of these, visit the Ensenada and Tijuana restaurants director.

Agua Mala: Ophelia's, Corazon de Tierra, Laja, Flor de Calabaza, Wendlandt, La Contra, Pelicanos Gastropub, Beerbox La Paz, Muelle Tres

Marinera: Laja, Beerbox La Paz, Distrito bar, Pelicanos Gastropub, Flor de Calabaza, La Cava de Marcelo, Wendlant

Border Psycho: BeerBox TJ, la Tasca, Wendlandt, La Tasquiota, Distrito, Pelicanos Gastropub.

Fauna: currently at a Baja Beer Fest near you.

So, if you're looking for something familiar, go ahead and have a Corona.

But if you want a little extra personality in your pint, try something different south of the Border. Be one of the first to find out about Baja's new take on cerveza.

Many of the local brewers are happy to offer tours and personal tasting by appointment.
