Artisan brewers from Mexico and the United States will toast together with the launch of eight beers made between producers from both countries to celebrate both agricultural industries.
The US Department of Agriculture (USDA), with the support of the Brewers Association and Acermex, launched a call to find breweries interested in participating in a transnational collaborative project, in order to create a beer that celebrates the best of both industries.
According to the Brewing Association of the Mexican Republic (Acermex, for its acronym in Spanish), in each collaboration the Mexican brewer traveled to the United States to design a recipe, whose results were creations that bring together the best of both countries: fresh hops, coconuts, grapefruit, lemon and even mole and grasshoppers.
“These collaborations celebrate the close relationship maintained by the agricultural industries of both countries (Mexico and the United States)”, the association said in a statement.
It highlighted that Mexico is the first importer of North American barley and the second of hops; while the exports of beer from our country to the United States are just under three billion dollars.
“This type of alliances are very important for craft brewers, because not only is there an opportunity to learn about new production processes, but through this project new relationships have emerged between the breweries, which translate into new projects, learning and business links”.
