Location: Cusco, Peru
On October 1 1908, a group of entrepeneurs led by Ernesto Günther founded the Cervecera Alemana (German brewery) in the city of Cusco. A year later, the newfound brewery was bottling its cerveza premium del Peru (premium Peruvian beer).
Residents of Cusco (called cusqueños) were accustomed to drinking alcoholic beverages, particularly traditional chicha beers made from maize and it didn't take them long to grow fond of the new and much lighter, Cusqueña lager.
Cusqueña is a super premium lager from Cusco, the seat of the Inca empire. Brewed since 1911, it uses only the finest natural ingredients, including pure mountain water from a source at 18,000 feet in the Peruvian Andes. Cusqueña is crisp, pure and totally refreshing. Truly the finest premium lager from Latin America.
