Our Team


Pitch

Mission: Make delicious Latino inspired beer, celebrate culture, create community


Problem: Lack of representation in the craft beer community

Delicious diversity in craft beer by tapping into different cultural flavors and traditions that enrich our industry and world by representing the Latino and Female palate.

Solution: Create community hubs and offer unique heritage inspired beers for the Latinx/Latino consumer.  

From the beginning, we wanted to bring our roots to our brewing passion. A whole world of brewing traditions and flavors were right in front of us. We grew up with Jamaica, Horcha

ta, and Abuelita's Chocolate as well as unique tropical fruits and spices from Latin America. Our mission was crystal clear: we would bring something new and different to our community by fusi

ng our love of brewing, with our culture – and it was delicious!

Barrio Logan is one of the most exceptional neighborhoods in the country. Chicano Park is down the street, and is filled with historic murals celebrating Chicano history. Barrio Logan residents are proud of their heritage and contributions. Our brewery's environment reflects that: graffiti and fine art stand side by side, and our music goes from Latin Jazz to Rock en Espanol. We host fundraisers, Lucha Libre and art shows that celebrate Latino artists. We host a Chicano version of ComicCon dubbed ChicanoCon. We've even had Guillermo Del Toro (director of 2018 Oscar Best Picture winner The Shape of Water ) and actor John Leguizamo come to our events. We are not only delicious beer, but we celebrate and share our history, our culture and our community with all.


Opportunity: Maximize potential of current breweries with full kitchens, activate canning line, grow distribution and (eventually) more locations (a timeline or revenue projections would be helpful here)

We believe Los Angeles is just the beginning of our growth. We're focused on growing in the Southwest first – California, Arizona, New Mexico, Nevada, and Texas – in areas with strong Latino populations. We'll open up satellite taprooms when the time is right, and pursue canning and bottling to distribute our beers to a wider region.

$500 Profit per keg sold in our taproom

$100 Profit per keg sold in a restaurant

90% Of current sales are in our taproom

10% Of current sales are from distribution

5 million Latino residents in LA County

Our taprooms are already profitable on their own. If we can leverage our distribution to bars and restaurants, and move into cans and bottles, Border X could become an incredible business.


Investment: $1M to build out kitchens and canning line. Invitation to invest!


Our Origin Story

And then in 2020, at the height of the COVID Pandemic, we acquired a third brewery, dedicating it to the women from our craft beer club who were discovering their own passion for brewing. We named it "Mujeres Brew House" to honor the ancient legacy and role women have had in brewing since it's origin. It would be an experimental brewhouse with a 5 BBL system, 10 BBL fermenters that would allow the team to explore both new and ancient recipes and ingredients.  New teas, herbs, fruits, grains, and of course hops would form the new field of exploration. 

Mujeres Brew House sprang into existence with the sheer force of how great of an idea it was. Despite being at the height of the COVID Pandemic, we acquired a third brewery, dedicating it to the women from our craft beer club who were discovering their own passion for brewing. We named it "Mujeres Brew House" to honor the ancient legacy and role women have had in brewing since it's origin over 5,000 years ago. It would be an experimental brewhouse with a 5 BBL system, 10 BBL fermenters that would allow the team to explore both new and ancient recipes and ingredients. New teas, herbs, fruits, grains, and of course hops would form the new field of exploration.

In 2019, with our two taprooms in Barrio Logan and Bell we reached sales of $1.8M. 

By 2020, despite a pandemic that shut our taprooms in some form for half the year, we were still able to generate $1.2M in sales, a miracle given the circumstances.

In 2021, with over half the year completed, we expect to reach $3M in total revenue


Our Growth Plan is focused on optimizing the three tap rooms we operate today, increasing our canned beer sales dramatically, and focusing our expertise in Micheladas.

At 5 million people, the Latino population in Los Angeles County is five times larger than San Diego County and, like a magnet, is pulling us to expand. We plan to open a second taproom in Bell, which is at the heart of the Latino community in Southeast Los Angeles. We will replicate our brewery model by producing our beers on site, adding delicious Mexican food and hosting community events. We have an excellent relationship with the city government and are excited to work with community.

We believe Los Angeles is just the beginning of our growth. We're focused on growing in the Southwest first – California, Arizona, New Mexico, Nevada, and Texas – in areas with strong Latino populations. We'll open up satellite taprooms when the time is right, and pursue canning and bottling to distribute our beers to a wider region.
