Refreshing-tasting Dos Equis is a crisp, golden pilsner-style lager from Mexico with earthy tones and just the right balance of flavor. It also contains a nuanced blend of malts and hops, but it’s really our unique yeast used for fermentation that creates the distinct flavor profile you love. That’s why we’re one of the most popular beers made in Mexico since 1897.
Dos Equis is made where it always has been, in Mexico, and it’s brewed using the same process and ingredients as when it was first introduced in 1897. Our commitment to the original recipe helps create the consistency you’ve come to expect from our special lager beer. It’s made from pure spring water and the choicest hops for a well-balanced composition and a smooth, clean finish.
Dos Equis is proud to be the Official Beer Sponsor of the College Football Playoff. Share some Cerveza Dos Equis Lager Especial Mexican Beer with friends at your next party, barbecue, or tailgate.

“Cerveza” of course translates to “beer” in English, and “Dos Equis” means the “two X’s” logo you see on our bottles. “XX” can be read as the Roman numeral for “20,” in reference to our recipe’s origins more than 100 years ago at the turn of the 20th century. One Spanish word used to describe Dos Equis Lager the world over is one that’s easy to understand: “interesante.”
Dos Equis pairs well with a variety of different foods: burgers, tacos, dips, or an appetizer plate of sausages and cheeses are a few tasty suggestions.

About Dos Equis
In 1890, German immigrant Wilhelm Hasse founded the Moctezuma Brewery in Veracruz, Mexico. And in 1897, a beer was born. He named it “Siglo XX” to symbolically usher in the 20th century. Siglo XX eventually became the beer that we know today as Dos Equis. It took nearly a decade to first import it to the United States, but in 2009, Dos Equis became one of the fastest growing imports in the U.S. Over the years, the Dos Equis logo has evolved, and brewing has expanded to other parts of Mexico. Yet Hasse’s unique flavor and brewing tradition have endured the test of time.
