Some history about Mexican microbrews
The growth of microbrews, or cervezas artesanales, in Mexico is fairly recent. These beers are notoriously difficult to find, fairly expensive, and the brewers face an uphill battle against the monopolistic practices of the two major breweries in the country that produce most of the garbage that passes for beer here. There are a few English language articles that get into some of the background behind the microbrewers that are worth checking out, one from the LA Times, and another from AP.
