Cervecería de Colima

Cervecería de Colima

“La Cervecería de Colima” is a new Mexican brewery located in the town of El Trapiche, Cuauhtemoc in the state of Colima in Mexico. The brewery dedicates all its hard work into perfecting its three unique handcrafted beers for international sale and distribution. 

Our branding proposal is a modern visual translation of every distinguished traditional element from Colima and its surroundings, such as its magnificent local Colima volcano. We developed a friendly, simple-looking brand that honours the human touch and workmanship behind every product.

Three craft beers were brewed to mark the beginning of the brand’s legacy. First, the main one: Colimita, the beer from the earth and favorite of the sun. Second, Páramo, a Pale Ale inspired by the whisperings in the streets of Comala. And finally, Ticús, relative of the crow, Cervecería de Colima’s dark beer. From light to dark labels and bright colored caps, the bottles' design resemble the uniqueness and the hard work behind each individual brew.

Guillermo Ríos and dancing dogs of Colima

Dancing Dogs are one of the best known symbols of Colima . Contrary to what you think they are not dancing or fighting. These dogs represent the transfer of power from generation to generation. The old dog transmitting their knowledge, wisdom and experience that prepares the young to the succession.

The dogs are Xoloitzcuintles, also called Mexican hairless dog, an ancient pre-Hispanic race. These dogs, according to Aztec mythology, accompanied the deceased and guided his soul to the underworld so sacrificed and buried with him. In the state of Colima found a large number of graves containing clay figures with the representation of these dogs.

The photo is the work of Guillermo Ríos and his prehispanic figures Alcalá, master of Mexican folk art.
