Sorry, come back when you’re of legal drinking age. We’ll keep the Dos Equis cold.

Brewing Process

Dos Equis is brewed today just as it was first brewed in 1897 – in 5 steps.

Step 1


First, barley grains are germinated by immersing them in water. This encourages the barley to sprout. The barley is then dried to halt the process of sprouting completely in order to release the enzymes necessary for brewing.

Step 2


Next, starch made from the malted barley is converted into fermentable sugars and hops are added. The mixture is set to boil and at this point in the process, it becomes what is known as wort.

Step 3


Brewer’s yeast is added, and instantly, the yeast begins converting the sugars into alcohol and carbon dioxide. This is what makes beer carbonated. Different strains of yeast have different flavor compounds, so this is also where beers get their different and distinct flavor profiles.

Step 4


The beer is kept at a low temperature for a set period of time. Once the beer is saturated with carbon dioxide, the yeast settles to the bottom of the tank.

Step 5


The remaining yeast cells are filtered out, leaving clear beer that’s ready to be filled into bottles, cans and kegs.
