New Belgium Brewing Co. and Primus Cerveceria of Mexico City have joined forces to bring Mexico’s popular agua fresca to life in a new style of fruit infused beer dubbed Mural Agua Fresca Cerveza.

Mural Agua Fresca Cerveza is 4.2 percent ABV and modeled after the readily available agua fresca found all over Mexico. This new style of beer is created with hibiscus, agave, watermelon juice and whole lime puree.

Aguas fresca, meaning cool or fresh waters, is widely available from street vendors all over Mexico as well as other countries.  It is available in colorful combinations of fruit, flowers, seeds, sugar and water and is typically non-alcoholic.

“Last year I went to Tijuana on this exploratory trip where I was looking for ingredients to bring back to New Belgium,” said, Cody Reif, a New Belgium brewer, in a press release “I kept coming across this one drink [agua fresca] that was in all the food stalls. I was so inspired by the flavors, I thought this would make a great beer.”

Mural Agua Fresca Cerveza is available in 12-ounce bottles and on tap across Mexico and in select U.S. markets.
