Our Story

We tested our first batch in our Mexican brewery in 2013. After a few exploding bottles, we perfected the craft with the help of the experts at University of California, Davis. Our team’s first production took place in Portland in 2015, and was released into the market late summer of that year. We are truly a West Coast brand, committed to serving delicious and refreshing beverages to our communities. Brewed like a craft beer, our fermented aguas frescas use a unique blend of fruits, extracts, and yeast.


Mauro and Peter have been following their family traditions of producing hand-crafted natural products for decades. In 1959, Mauro’s grandfather founded ‘La Reina’, the queen of tortillerías, located in East Los Angeles. Peter’s grandfather, a second generation immigrant chef, introduced him to the kitchen at the young age of five. Today, Mauro and Peter are excited to share with you their deep appreciation of family tradition and Mexican culture.
