Middleton, Wisc. — In Aztec mythology, time was cyclical and each period was ruled by a new sun. The five principal Mesoamerican civilizations – Aztec, Maya, Olmec, Zapotec and Toltec – all built marvels of architecture and sculpture embellished with designs of the sun. We are now living under the 5th sun, and Capital Brewery has developed a beer to celebrate this astrological belief.
Brewmaster Ashley Kinart stated, “Although we have our roots heavily buried in German beer and culture, the release of this crisp, refreshing beer is a toast to the heritage of our country’s southerly neighbors. I am really excited we decided to take a focus in the direction of this rich and gorgeous culture.”
Corey Wehling, V.P of Sales added, “This is a great opportunity to branch out to some new beer consumers. Studies show that the Latino community is looking for new flavorful styles of beers and giving them an option from the award winning Capital Brewery line up only seemed natural.”
The packaging is unique to the craft brewing world and is printed in English on two sides and Spanish on the other two sides.
Cinco Soles is Capital’s most recent annual beer, weighing in at 5.2% alcohol by volume (ABV) and 28 International Bittering Units (IBU) and is available in 12 ounce bottles, cans, and on draft.
