    The sensual allure of alcohol is tangled deep within us. For many Chicano and South and Central Americans, the first tastes of these forbidden beverages were taken from the likes of Corona, Modelo, and Tecate bottles. These brands not only represent a staple of the Mexican experience, but also a step in acceptance and integration by the American population of their southern neighbors.

    What? :astonished: 50,000 liters = 426 US (beer) barrels! C'mon.

    According to just one source (1903's 100 Years of Brewing), the oldest brewery in Mexico, Toluca, was brewing 80,000 bbl. a year. The then-largest, Cervecería Cuauhtémoc, had a capacity of 100k bbl./yr with a new 800 bbl./day brewhouse.

    How do you write an article like that without mentioning that Cervecería Cuauhtémoc-Moctezuma is owned by Heineken International and Grupo Modelo is owned Anheuser-Busch-InBev, with Constellation Brands owning the US rights to their primary brands brewing them in their own Mexican breweries?

    Honestly because he built his article on other articles dating back to 2007. Also built it on top of other articles that were flawed/had flawed data. I guess being a reporter is aggregating other reporters stuff into new content.
