Mexican Beer pricing


I've noticed some odd pricing on beer this trip. On Tecate, it's 10 cans for 110 pesos and Pacifico it's 8 cans for 89 pesos. Both seem to come in six packs you have to break up.

Back in the day, I don't like that phrase but use it anyway, there
we're true beer Depositos, beer only, no snacks, etc. Took your
empty carton, 20 bottles, got a full case back. Price was posted
on the wall, very little difference anywhere. '87 or so, a case was
just a bit under $3 dlls, $.13 a beer, miss those days

I really think Modelo and Tecate keep changing the way they package beer so that it confuses the mathematically challenged beer purchasers in Mexico. Coupled with beer pricing sales by the major retail outlets NOT OWNED BY THE BREWERIES, it can be difficult for those without a calculator to figure when the cheapest time to buy beer is. I often see supposed "sales" of beer in larger packaged quantities that are actually more expensive than smaller packages. Buying larger quantities of many things is sometimes more expensive (per unit) in Mexico.

I'll tell you one thing. The best deals on beer is almost always involving a sale at a major supermarket. Especially if it is simply the basic regular and light beers from both brew houses. Those sales absolutely destroy the pricing at the agencias, OXXO/Circle K, etc. I see 12 packs of these beers (in cans almost exclusively) for under 100 pesos, often. Same goes for Bud Light and Coors Light down here.

Almost never see decent sales on premium beer like Bohemia, Negra Modelo, Pacifico, etc.

Plus it was recycling at its best. Now everything (cans/bottles) gets chucked in the trash with just the cans getting picked out and recycled.

I seemed to notice the change when the Belgium company bought out Grupo Modelo.:mad:

It IS becoming more rare. Our local Modelo outlet often doesnt have it. It is also one of the remaining holdouts for returnable bottles.

I remember the first beers I bought in Mexico with twist off caps. They were stubby, barrel shaped bottles with a very tight cap, and had a recessed area in the bottom that was used to grip the caps of the other bottles.

Long gone, but not forgotten...
my favorite for many years

And glass vs. cans was debated here a couple years ago
The beer makers did a bunch of blind tests and it came up neutral,
much to my dismay since I always thought it was better out of the bottle.

Flavor is subject to so many variables in your perception that it can make you doubt the assumptions you have about reality . If you go around blind tasting things you are going to be in for some very rude awakenings .
If you think beer tastes better out of the bottle , then it does.

The built in bottle opener or the beer (Carta Blanca)? We still get Carta Blanca in bottles and cans down here but no built in opener:(

Wasn't XXX (Tres equis) beer an early version of the bottle opener bottom?

Here's the can...

I am not aware of who brewed the beer in those stubby bottles, but I believe the label had Barrile in the name. If I remember correctly, the glass had a barrel pattern.

I last saw them in 1986, then had a thirteen year gap in my Mexico travels.

at 3.4% a really good light beer and fun bottle that still requires an opener. I enjoy drinking out of bottles as much as the next guy but I hate carting the heavy trash up to the dumpster....Soriana has barrilito's in cans! (no opener required):D
