Now available in Gastown's La Casita (Mexican) restaurant in Vancouver, BC; Cerveza Tecate is a relatively hard-to-get beer in Canada, even though it is widely available throughout the U.S.   This beer was developed by Alberto Aldrete in 1944.  He took over an old brick building that orginally produced vegetable oil, and turned it into the dominant beer in Baja California.  His beer company was eventually taken over by the Cuauhtemoc brewery, which also produces Superior, Sol, and Dos Equis; but Cerveza Tecate is stilll brewed in its Baja facility.
