This is a fabulous little store that serves as a cross section of the current state of the Mexican beer scene. Just a small locale, but packed with the full variety of bottled Mexican craft as well as some memorabilia, and imports. A few refrigerators, some stuff at room temp. The employees were above and beyond helpful. Seriously probably the best service I have ever had, suggestions, explanations, taste comparisons, telling me about different processes, etc. An all around great experience. There are all of the "big boys" (Cucapá, Minerva, Insurgente, etc) and none of the really big boys (Cuautemoc, et al.) I even got some American stuff that I couldn't have gotten in Quebec, which says a lot about Quebec and about this store. Will be back!

This is most likely the pioneer of craft beer stores in Mexico city, and that IS a lot to say.
The place has an excellent vibe, perfect decoration and it's located in one of the best zones in the city.
Its selection has a wide range of beers, and the occasional whales do arrive.
The prices are great too.

I found this tiny beerstore while walking randomly in the streets of the beautiful neighbourhood of Roma/Condesa.

The selection of mexican craft beer is AMAZING. I think they have them all. Cavalera, Tempus, Cucapa, Tijuana, Minerva, Hacienda, Cerveceria Condesa is what I can remember. It's a good place to buy souvenirs before going back home, while supporting the marginal (but growing) mexican brewing scene. For the locals, it's nice too. They have good selection of beers from Europe and the US.

The day I went the guy at the counter was not really caring to give us info about the products, but I would return for sure to fill my luggage with some of their fine liquids.
