The brewery and hotel are situated in the neighborhood that shares our name, Hércules. Nestled in a valley in the city of Querétaro, Hércules emerged during the 19th century with a deeply rooted working-class identity.
Prior to this, in 1592, Diego de Tapia, son of Fernando de Tapia "Conín”, built the “Molino Colorado”, a mill which produced wheat flour for over 200 years. Within the same complex, in 1846, and under the guidance of Cayetano Rubio, a Spanish industrialist, the "El Hércules" Textile Factory was established, giving birth to the neighborhood.
This factory holds a rich history, having withstood wars, crises, and strikes. It stands as a significant landmark in Mexico's Industrial Revolution and has been visited by prominent figures like Porfirio Díaz and Venustiano Carranza.
After 165 years, while the textile factory continued its operations in a much smaller scale, the brewery was founded with the mission of reclaiming the greatness of this historic site. The factory has served as the heart of the economic and social life in the Hércules neighborhood, where a community flourishes with cultural heritage, lively festivities, and a deep sense of belonging.
Together, the factory and the neighborhood embark on a new chapter dedicated to hospitality, marked by the opening of our hotel.
