Craft brewed, real ale Ocho Reales is craft brewed in Monterrey, Mexico. This unique ale is malty with hint of caramel. The Ocho Reales name comes from coin used following Mexico’s independence in 1821 and was a popular international trading coin throughout the 19th century. Ocho Reales original beer’s style is craft brewed in strict adherence to German Purity Laws of 1516 (The Bavarian Reinheitsgebot). Only four ingredients are used: Water, hops, malted barley and our proprietary yeast. No other adjuncts or preservatives are used.
