Craft Beer in Cozumel?

OK bit of a funny question I admit.

I am travelling from the UK and I know Cozumel caters mainly to US tourists.

I love US craft beer I was hoping that we might see some over the border in Mexico.

Any recommendations on Cozumel bars that sell something other than the standard fayre?

(same question for Playa del Carmen if anyone knows)

You may want to try the Liquor stores. I don't think you will find many "garage" brews anywhere on the island. A buddy of mine makes an awesome IPA but he makes it in his garage. LOL

I hope you'll enjoy some of the Mexican beers. Do you like dark beer? We like Bohemia & Modelo dark. Regular beer we like Tecate, Dos XX & Modelo. I've never heard of any craft beer on Cozumel. Check beeradvocate.com

I really doubt you're going to find anything. We even have trouble finding Bohemia, which is not a craft beer.

It's possible that La Europea might have something but I wouldn't hold my breath.

I have seen Cucapá Beer at Soriana, and there is also another Brand that I saw today but I cant remember the name. It was marked at 6.5% alcohol and 19-21 pesos each. For a real Bold Taste for the meantime until Mexico catches up to the Craft beer world, I would Choose Bohemia Wizen. Its just like the Regular Bohemia bottle, except with Blue trim. At 5.7%, it tastes real good. Its a limited production beer and I hope they keep brewing it. I have seen it at Oxxo, and at Sams.

World Beer - Playa del Carmen


Mexico has some great beers imo...ones that I really like (and frogslegs said the dark-darker beers yum!) are Indio, depending on when you're going Noche Buena, Leon...http://beeradvocate.com/lists/mx
