The local beer (aka 'cerveza') in Mazatlán is Pacifico Clara ("clear Pacific").  It is normally just referred to as "Pacifico".  The brewery is located close to the port where the cruise ships dock behind downtown.  It is one of tallest buildings in the downtown area and can be see from a distance.  Just look for the logo on the top of the building!  Pacifico is served in every restaurant and bar in Mazatlán!  They now have Pacifico Light so if you want to save a few calories, try out this beer.  It actually tastes really good for a light beer!  So, when you are in Mazatlán, you definitely need to try out Pacifico beer!

The brewery used to have tours of the brewery, but they were cancelled in 2012.  Supposedly, they have a museum of old brewery equipment on a top floor of the brewery.  Representatives from the brewery said that they are renovating to better accomodate tours. There were building an air-conditioned room for visitors and making it safe to travel within the brewery for the tours.  The tours were supposed to start up again in 2013, but we have not been able to confirm that they have actually started up again. If you know that they have started up again, please let us know!

A little known secret is that there is a little store at the brewery (see photo above) with great prices.  This is a great place to buy high quality t-shirts and hats.  Locals also buy flats of beer right from the brewery.

October 2015: Great News for Canadian Pacifico beer drinkers..Cerveceria Del Pacifico, the brewers of Pacifico won a trademark court case that was brought against it by Pacific Western Brewery which brews Pacific beer.  Part of his judgement was that Pacifico has been sold in Canada for 25 years and PWB only sued recently.  Also, the labelling of Pacifico is obviously foreign and distinct!  So, Pacifico will be able to be sold in Canada for now...PWB is appealing the decision!
