| Cerveza Cuauhtémoc, named after the last Mexican Aztec ruler, was introduced in Monterrey, Mexico in 1893. One of Mexico's oldest beer brands, this 4.5% alcohol lager, was nicknamed Cerveza Indio (Indian Beer) by consumers, and this name became so popular that in 1905 the brewing company officially adopted the nickname and dropped the original official name. Heineken International acquired the company and all of its brands in 2010. |
Indio is sold in various can and brown bottle variations, and is available in all Mexican states. It enjoys limited distribution in the United States, most notably Texas. It is a brown lager, and the company states that it should be enjoyed in both the cold weather of its founders' country of origin (Germany) and in the warmer areas of the southwestern USA and Mexico.
This writer has sampled the beer, finding it comparable to other Heineken beers brands (Dos Equis, Sol, Tecate, etc.). One hopes that its American distribution will be expanded in coming years.
