New Yucatan brewery will be even larger than previously announced
A new brewery in Yucatán that hasn’t even opened yet is set to have its capacity increased by 40%.
That expansion will take place during the current quarter of the year, said Grupo Modelo general manager Mauricio Leyva, who also noted that the new brewery has been built in record time.
Its construction in the municipality of Hunucmá, just west of Mérida, was announced in January of last year.
The company, which makes the iconic Corona brand, is owned by Anheuser-Busch InBev, based in Belgium.
The Cervecería Yucateca will produce Corona, Montejo and León Negra beers.
