About Dos Equis:
Master brewer Wilhelm Haase, who was originally from Germany, dreamed of becoming a legend for brewing Mexican beer. He created Dos Equis lager in 1897 after he immigrated to Mexico. His approach was to combine his love for his homeland with the new and wonderful tastes and traditions of his new home. Originally, Haase named the brew “Siglo XX” which means “Twentieth Century.” The name Dos Equis comes from the Roman numeral for twenty, which is XX, or two Xs. Dos Equis XX Amber has been available in the United States since 1973 when it was first imported from Mexico.
