Who are we?
Chili Beer was created by Crazy Ed Chilleen in 1991 after a meeting with a potential customer who wanted a spicy beer. Ed thought about the worm in the bottom of a Mescal bottle and an idea was born. The beer expanded from the small brewery in Cave Creek to larger breweries with the capacity to grow the brand. In 2013 Ed sold the brand to Cerveza Mexicana who in turn sold out to Modelo the Mexican beer giant. Modelo dropped the brand from it's portfolio and Ed's family got the trademark back. Cave Creek Chili Beer was sold in 35 states in the USA, Japan, the UK, Australia, and the EEU. Will Chili Beer ever come back on the market? Yes if everything goes as planned.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What's it going to take to bring Chili Beer back?
- A brewery (Done) We have found a brewery in Tecate Mexico that will bottle Chili Beer for us.
- Money ( We are working on ways to finance) It will take $100,000.00 to produce the first two truckloads. We are looking for a method to finance production with the beer as collateral. We have considered investment crowdfunding and just plain borrowing the money. We will consider all offers.
- Distribution: Distribution in the USA is complicated but we are working on setting up online sales or traditional 3-tiered distribution, i.e. we sell to a distributor and they sell to the retailers who sell to the customer. If any distributors are interested please contact us.
When will we be back in production?
We are aiming for the first quarter of 2024.
