Bichola Brewery works to enter the United States


The California Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control receives the request for La Bichola to produce craft beer

The craft beer brand from Mazatlán, Cerveza Bichola, is going from strength to strength in its intention to venture into the United States, and the offices of the Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control, in the District of San Diego, California, issued a document in which they accept as received the brewery’s request to produce their craft drink in Chulavista, California.

As the president of the Board of Directors of Grupo ARHE, Maestro Juan José Arellano Hernández, had already expressed, during the inauguration of the Sport Bar La Bichola Zona Dorada, the name of Mazatlán will be taken to the United States with a quality product, and that has in its logo the image with which it is related to the City: the Bichis Monkeys (the Monument to the Fisherman).

Maestro Juan José Arellano himself oversaw carrying out the request to produce La Bichola in California, fulfilling the vision of Grupo ARHE of having an international presence.

Érika Solís Quintero, general manager of La Bichola, commented that for some time they began to gather the documentation requested by this department to accept the start of the process, and today they sent them proof of receipt.

At the same time, she said, the process for the construction of the factory for the preparation of craft beer in the neighboring country began.

“Once they accepted the start of the production of craft beer, we started with the construction procedures, the factory and a Sport Bar La Bichola will be built on one side of it,” she commented.

Solís Quintero indicated that they were informed that the approval of the license for the production of beer could take about 8 months, so it would be ready until the end of this year.

There are plans, she pointed out, so that the construction of the factory begins in 2024, because if the manufacturing permit is granted, the alcohol sale license is also given and with this the construction is approved.
