Cerveceria de Baja California (founded in 2002), is located in the City of Mexicali, and is one of the handful of Mexican Microbrews. The product they brew is Cucapá Beer. This name comes from one of the five Indian tribes that live in the Mexicali Valley. The Cucapá tribe was the first settlers of the region and the love for water and nature took them to live in the delta of the Colorado River.
The tradition of nature, the water of the river, the geographical location and the initiative of being the first people to explore the region is what makes Cerveza Cucapá as unique as their ancestors.
