The Tecate brewery is a great diversion. I have toured the brewery several times and always find that it is amazingly clean, well organized and efficient. The free beer in the "beer garden" is always a must do when in Tecate.

We really enjoyed our holiday. We visited the brewery on the last day (2015) before the brewery has sadly closed.

Went down to Tecate with some friends on New Year's weekend. Unfortunately, we found the beer garden was closed for remodeling. Looks like it will be a while before it will reopen. Did grab some good tacos on the walk back to the border.
