The opportunity to partner with Glazer’s Beer and Beverage to leverage their extensive relationships and market expertise will ensure that our fans will be able to enjoy Chihuahua Cerveza at their favorite retailers.”
Glazers Beer and Beverage is excited to announce the partnership and rollout of Chihuahua Cervezas in the “Sun City”.

Chihuahua Cerveza’s portfolio and vision for their brands align with our mission of delivering and executing new brands into the El Paso market to consumers selection of high quality beer and beverages.
The Aztec Empire discovered what is now the Mexican state of Chihuahua. The word, “Chihuahua” is derived from the Nahuatl language meaning “The place where the waters of the rivers meet”, referencing the convergence of the two rivers, Rio Conchos and Rio Grande that join to form the U.S. and Mexican border. The name Chihuahua serves as a metaphor for the mission of Chihuahua Cerveza.
Phil Jamison, President of Chihuahua Cerveza, elaborates on the mission, “We are proud of the taste and quality of Chihuahua Cerveza beers, but our vision goes beyond that. We strive to unite the Mexican and American people by celebrating shared values and experiences. Beer is a common denominator we use to converge the greatness of both Mexican and American cultures and make positive impacts in our communities. There is a new generation that cherish both Mexican and American heritage and traditions, but are celebrating them in new, progressive and culturally relevant ways,” said Jamison. “Chihuahua wants to discover and elevate the young artists, innovators and tastemakers shaping contemporary Mexican-American culture.”
