Baja California has been recognized internationally for being a state that has some of the best craft beers, like Insurgente in the municipality of Tijuana.
Baja California has 6 municipalities, and each has something that makes them authentic, Tijuana for its beers, Ensenada for its wines and valleys, Tecate for its sweet bread, Rosarito for its lobsters and tourism, San Quintín for its beaches, and the Capital of Baja California, Mexicali for its authentic Chinese food.
Mexicali is a city known for being “the city that captured the sun”, because of its “infernal” heat. The inhabitants and visitors of this city can cool off with a variety of craft beers.
If you had not planned to visit Mexicali, you should pack your bags and visit these tap rooms:
1. Once Perros
The name comes from 10 friends who are “bien perrones” (Mexican slang for really badass or awesome) and adding the custmoer, there is a total of “eleven (once) perrones”. This is a space full of artistic murals, good spots for photos and, above all, a delicious Mexicali Cream Ale beer, you can’t drink just one. Without a doubt, the perfect space for everyone who visits Mexicali

2. Fauna Tasting Room
One of the best known breweries in Baja California is found in Mexicali. Don’t hesitate to take a Piedra de León, which is a Pale Ale with aroma dominated by hints of grapefruit, orange and flowers. Ideal for those hot days.

The perfect tap room for 70’s music lovers! This is a place to drink your favorite craft beers and snack hamburgers, wings, nachos and more. This is a must to end your day in Mexicali.
What stands out here is their patio and rustic aspect, a super cozy place with good vibes to drink an Indian Pale. You will find live rock music and a great variety of beers.
5. Cervecería Ícono
This brewery is located where the emblematic and old Cervecería Mexicali used to be, in one of the most representative buildings of the city founded in 1923. You can enjoy a good American Ipa or Pale Ale with delicious ribs or pizza.
