Hispanic Heritage Month, which is celebrated each year in the U.S. from September 15 through October 15, promotes the history, culture, and contributions of Hispanic-Americans. While we at Ceria Brewing Company are proud of our Hispanic heritage all of the time, we especially love to celebrate our roots and those of our Hispanic friends this time of year.
Ceria’s co-founder and Brewmaster, Keith Villa Ph.D., is a third generation Mexican American who comes from a large family rich in Mexican traditions – especially when it comes to food and drink! In the 1950’s Keith’s grandparents, Gabriel and Delfina owned a restaurant in Denver called Gabe’s Cafe, serving an assortment of Latin foods to hungry Denverites during lunch hour and into dinnertime. Keith’s mother, Mercedes, and her sisters worked at the cafe while they were in high school. One of Keith’s earliest memories was the family getting together each Christmas eve to make Delfina’s delicious pork tamales, a tradition that continued for many years. Nowadays, Keith’s Hispanic creativity comes through in his beers, by creating Latin-inspired flavors like mojito ale and cinnamon horchata ale.
We at Ceria also enjoy finding and supporting other Hispanic owned or run organizations. Here are just a few we love:
