Chihuahua Beer was a lager produced by the Cuauhtémoc Moctezuma Brewery in Mexico. It is no longer in production.

From the mid-19th century through the early 20th century, many beers were produced regionally in Mexico having taken brewer notes from the Germans, Swiss, and Spanish who had come through the areas in the 100 years prior. Cerveceria Chihuahua, which would later become part of Cerveceria Moctezuma, was founded in 1896 in Chihuahua. Presumably, this lager gained enough popularity in the region and was marketed to the American audience during and after prohibition when Americans crossed the border to Mexico to consume alcohol.
