I was told today at local corner store that there is a beer shortage and pepsi is having a shortage also. Is there a shortage down there also?

Yeah, I used to have to buy "Coke Lite/Light" or bring Pepsi products from home. It's a Coke-Corona-products town.

Would a beer shortage have something to do with shutting down that plant in Mexicali earlier in the year over some govt regulations drama?

The Modelo/Corona/Pacifico plant was scrapped after 50% built. Not enough H2O in Tij/Mexicali area to support it. It's being relocated to Monterrey.

We used to buy Pacifico at I think it’s Antonios at the bottom of the hill headed up to El Capitan. Now hearing there is no Pacifico in town. Is this true?

I used to get Pacifico in cases of real bottles (20?) at Reggie's 8/12 on the way to Las Conchas on Freemont but that was ages ago. You'd pay extra and then get like $5 back with a completely full case of empties.

I do NOT miss stressing the entire trip about the location of a missing bottle & who lost it. Now we just get 12 XX's twist-offs at the XOXO just before leaving Sonoyta, ice those up in the cooler on the drive & buy cans in town as needed for the beach--bottles stay in the condo fridge.

That liquor store hasn't sold Corona/Pacifico products in several years.

The liquor store on Freemont & Guanajuato , right behind the Tecate convenience store, sells pretty much all brands of cerveza. Including, Pacifico and Pacifico light.

Nice folks there as well.
