The history behind Dos Equis is interesting. It has been brewed since slightly before 1900 and was developed by master brewer Wilhelm Haase, who emigrated from his native Germany to Mexico and melded the traditions of his homeland with those of his new country to create this excellent brew. It was originally called “Siglo XX” (20th Century) to signify the coming millennium. Of course today most of us know Siglo XX as Dos Equis (“two X’s” in English).
