SAN DIEGO — KEG Trading Co of San Diego, CA announces the official and assigned Imports of the award winning Corazon de Malta, artisan craft brews originating from Mexico’s Jalisco state in Lake Chapala.

These select craft brews and ales from Lake Chapala, Mexico, located about one hour south of Tequila country in the State of Jalisco have won numerous awards from the Copa Cervezas de America GCA competitions, which measure profiles from participants at craft brewers from Mexico, Central and South America. Corazon de Malta most recently and notably walked away again with the Gold Medal 2019 for best British Ale style.
