Founded in 1890, the historic Cuauhtémoc Moctezuma Brewery produced its very first beer in 1893. Its initial frosty brew was delicious enough to win first prize at the Chicago and Paris world fairs. Today, the once independent purveyor of barley and hops operates as a subsidiary of big-name beer company Heineken, but visitors can still experience the old world charm on a visit to the brewery, where a popular beer garden plays host to travelers and offers a free glass of Bohemia, Dos Equis or Carta Blanca to patrons.
The brewery is located at Alfonso Reyes, 2202, in Monterrey. It is open every day from 10 a.m. until 6 p.m.
