Offering beers that are brewed from gluten-free ingredients, corn and aguamiel, Dos Luces Brewery offers beers that are rich in flavor and deep with history. These ingredients are little known in the U.S., but Dos Luces aims to use the tradition behind them for inspiration to explore the vast possibilities they can hold. Come drink something old and new, complex and simple.
Their brewery also strives to be a welcoming community space. They offer a long communal brewer’s table, as well as a central plaza. They offer non-alcoholic alternatives to beer, and an environment that’s friendly to singles, couples, and families alike.

Cinco de Mayo Celebration
Friday, May 3 to Sunday, May 5
This year, Dos Luces is celebrating the Victory of the Battle of Puebla—the original celebration that has evolved into the Cinco de Mayo we know today—with their second ever bottle release, Moctezuma III, to be released at noon on May 4. More celebration details to come.
The story of Moctezuma is one of inspired creation and tragic destruction. Moctezuma I grew the Aztec Empire beyond the imagination, to the vibrant shores of the “Sea of the Sky.” Moctezuma II outdid his namesake and brought the Empire’s reach to its absolute peak, before it was shattered by the brutal waves of history.
Dos Luces will be celebrating the victory at the Battle of Puebla throughout the weekend of May 3-5, with pop-up food options courtesy of El Turkito Food Truck, music, and lots of Pulque to go around.
