In 2015, Fred Sotelo, Mario Lopez, and Xavier The X-Man® taking cues from a long history of Mexican American culture, set out to build SD Craft Beverage Co a craft brand creator. Their main goal for Cerveza XTECA is to brew the best Original Mexican American Lager. After asking the initial question, “why isn’t there a beer we all like?” They set out to do just that and with over three years of R&D including countless brewing sessions, tastings and testing, finally creating the ultimate recipe for Cerveza XTECA™ a true Mexican American Lager born in San Diego, CA. Cerveza XTECA was conceived and brewed in the spirit of a GREAT beer, a smooth lager to be shared and enjoyed with friends and loved ones in the best joints to eat in Southern California.
