The trivia behind El Paso Brewing Company is quite interesting. According to a feature on the brewery, only one of the five owners drinks beer. That would be Carlos Guzman, the brewer. Carlos and his business partner Larry Walter originally set out to build a biodiesel plant, and Carlos brought in his uncle Jorge for Jorge's engineering background. Evelyn Vigo met Norma Reed and the other owners because she worked next door to the biodiesel plant.
So it wasn’t beer that brought these friends together. It was biodiesel! Biodiesel, and their love and pride for El Paso. This is why the brewery takes its name from the city that binds them together. Coincidentally, it’s also the name of an old brewing company that existed in the city at the early part of the 20th
With eight year-round beers and a few seasonal offerings, the brewery aims to “become a recognized regional brewery”.
