Discover Pacifico Beer

Pacífico is a Mexican beer brewed in the Pacific Ocean port city of Mazatlán, in the state of Sinaloa, México. Pacífico is a clear, blonde beer with a light, crisp taste and 4.5% alcohol content.

The brewery that produces Pacífico was founded in 1900, making the beer over a century old. Pacífico was first acquired by Grupo Modelo in 1954, which was then later acquired by the Belgian-Brazilian Anheuser-Busch InBev company.

Pacífico gained international recognition in the 1970s when a group of Californian surfers traveled to Mexico’s remote Baja Peninsula and discovered the beer in local cantinas. They liked it so much that they brought it back to the United States and popularized it among the surfing community. As a result, Pacífico has since gained a reputation as a popular beer among adventure seekers and surfers.

How do you recommend enjoying this Beer?

Pacifico is a delicious drink by itself, or in combination with any Mexican food. But drinking it by itself, we feel could be enhanced with some additional hits.
