In December Robert O’Connell and I made the trip to Puerto Rico to visit Cervecera de Puerto Rico. This brewery and its flagship Medalla Light are icons in Puerto Rico. Briess has had a relationship with this brewery for decades, and it’s always a pleasure to meet up with our friends there. And of course the climate, palm trees and sandy beaches were a nice break from our Wisconsin weather!
Cervecera de Puerto Rico is undergoing rapid growth and change, and will be introducing craft beer to the region later this year. That’s a big move for the area which is dominated by light lager beer drinkers. Take a look at these pictures of this beautiful brewery, and some of the equipment upgrades they’ve made. Best wishes to the whole crew at Cervecera de Puerto Rico.
