Del Norte Brewing Shuts Down

 Del Norte Brewing, from Denver, CO. announced via facebook that they would be closing their doors. Del Norte prided itself  on being "the first and only brewery in the United States to brew only authentic Mexican-style lager beers". Founded in 2007 their portfolio consisted of four beers brewed in what they called the "Latin American / Tropical Lager" tradition. In that short time Del Norte grew from a small 11bbl brewery to one that was available in Alaska, Colorado, Kansas, New Mexico, Texas and Wyoming.
In Celebration of  Lager Day we say thanks to Del Norte for being part of the "Better Beer" community.

From Facebook, dated Dec 5, 2012.....

 "Friends and Fans - After 5 years of brewing our award-winning beers, Del Norte Brewing Co. has made the difficult business decision to wrap up operations. We want to thank all of you for your support and encouragement. We look forward to enjoying the great beers made by our fellow brewers and growing the friendships we've developed through Del Norte. Salud!"
