It is with a heavy heart that I must address the likely future disappearances of various beer brands from the market due to COVID-19. It seems unlikely that a western government would ban beer, given that most governments around the world have sought to keep alcohol production running, perhaps out of psychological need for the population. However, the Mexican government took the position that alcohol production, specifically of beer was non-essential and was undesirable at a time of emergency. The logic behind the decision to shut down all Mexican beer production is very hard to explain, and it lacks merit, regardless of the angle you choose to look at, other than saying the government is discouraging gatherings and celebrations by removing alcohol (not wine, however, just beer).

So I've been buying the last few cases I could find of Mexican beer at my local supermarket in Texas. There doesn't seem to be a shortage on the American side since the May decree, perhaps because a very large portion of production was already stored in warehouses in the USA.
