Delicatessen La Gran Vía (Beer and Fashion)

 Beer and Fashion is primarily an online store where people can order cervezas artesanales and have them delivered to their door. While it is called Beer and Fashion, there is, as of yet,  no fashion to be found on their website. However, they have recently partnered with a small delicatessen near the center of Coyoacán to sell some of their beers. In addition to the partnership with La Gran Vía, Beer and Fashion also has another brick and mortar location in Colonía Prado Churobusco in Coyoacán which I have not yet visited.

La Gran Vía primarily sells cheese and pork products, plus a small selection of other foods like amaranth and chocolate. The beer selection is decent, with beers from Cucapá, Minerva, Rio Bravo, Ed Hardy, and Brew Dog, plus other imported beers from Germany, Belgium, Japan, and Canada.  To get a better idea of what is available, check out the Beer and Fashion online store. You should be able to find just about anything listed on the website at La Gran Vía. In addition to beer and food, you can also find glasses from national and international breweries, if you are looking to build up a collection or need a gift for a fellow cervecer@.

La Gran Vía is located at Higuera 48, a few blocks east of the Cathedral in downtown Coyoacán. From the plaza, look for La Guadalupana and just walk down the street next to it, which happens to be Higuera. The owner was very friendly so if you happen to be in Coyoacán and need to pick up some beers, I highly recommend checking this place out.
