The expansion will increase production capacity at the brewery by 35%, mostly for the benefit of its its Day of the Dead range of craft beers, and is expected to be completed by April 2014.

Timothy Owens, Drinks Americas CEO, said: “Regardless of what business you are operating or what customer you are servicing, it’s crucial that demand is met in the best and most efficient way possible.

“Cerveceria Mexicana is doing this through the strategic and calculated expansion of their facility– which when finished will yield the same refreshing, high quality beer product that our aficionados have come to know and love.

“Cerveceria Mexicana is dedicated to upholding the craftsmanship of their premium authentic Mexican craft beers during and after this expansion.

“We, at Drinks Americas, look forward to having the product available to meet market demand and to getting our leading beer brands into the hands and hearts of more adult consumers nationwide and beyond.”

Cerveceria Mexicana is the only brewery in Mexico that is 100% Mexican owned.
