TIJUANA. B.C., México – Compania Mexicana De OPTACO, S.A. De C.V., announced on this Cinco de Mayo national holiday the launch of “Xoloitzcuintle” Tamale Flavored Beer. At 4.5%, XOLO is brewed with Mexican oregano (Lippia graveolens) instead of hops and is brewed with spicy seasoned tamale masa flour instead of barley malt. “A lot of people only think of drinking Mexican beer with Tamales,” said Co-founder John Ramonett Gonzales. “We want to break those norms and encourage people to enjoy XOLO without any meal, at the beach, at a concert, or at a party. Our XOLO brew is light, refreshing, and extremely drinkable on any occasion.” said Gonzales.
Xoloitzcuintle is designed to satisfy your craving for a Spicy Mexican Tamale in a traditional Mexican Beer. Gonzales got the idea for brewing the Tamale Flavored Beer while riding on the Tijuana Trolley in San Diego, California. Gonzales is a tamale Aficionado and knows the Good, the Bad and the Ugly, like an old “Sergio Leone” Spaghetti Western. Compania Mexicana De OPTACO, S.A. De C.V. was founded on September 16, 2021, Mexico’s Independence Day — Día de la Independencia.
