Cerveceria Insurgente Enters LA Market
Craft Brewers Guild LA is proud to begin distribution for one of Mexico's newest and hottest craft breweries!
Owned and operated by brothers Ivan and Damian Morales, Cerveceria Insurgente does not brew your typical clear Mexican lager or anything of the sort. In fact, they are the exact opposite, or as their website more passionately states, "a group of rebels dedicated to liberating you from the tyranny of flavorless beer." Enough said. Their love and appreciation for craft beer and world-class imports including Fantome and Chouffe, combined with Mexico's obvious lack of craft beer, is what propelled Ivan and Damian to open a brewery of their own.
Inspired by their West Coast neighbors to the north, Cerveceria Insurgente brews three year-round brews that focus on aggressive hop profiles with sturdy malt backbones. Nocturna is Mexico's first commercially available Black IPA and Insurgente Brown is a classic American Brown Ale with a rich caramel maltiness and big hoppy bitterness. La Lupulosa (translated to "The Hoppy One") is already well-received by beer fans with a score of 92 points on Ratebeer.com.
In addition to West Coast hop-centric brews, Ivan and Damian show their love of Belgian ales with their fourth year-round brew, Tiniebla, a classic Belgian Witbier. While their main lineup is small for now, you can rest assured these guys are consistently working on special releases and collaborative projects such as Chocoveza brewed last year with Stone Brewing Company. Not only are these guys making a name for themselves in the beer geek community, but they are also impressing judging panels, as evidenced by the handful of medals they have taken home from competitions such as Cerveza Mexico, the country's top craft beer convention.
We are very excited to be working with Cerveceria Insurgente to bring you their delicious craft brews! Be on the lookout for their products at local retailers and restaurants in the weeks ahead and stay tuned with our website for more information about upcoming special releases!
