The Mexican government has announced that it won’t allow Constellation Brands to proceed on building a massive, partly-built $1.5 billion brewery on the border town of Mexicali after residents rejected it in a referendum.
Public protests have increased over recent months in opposition to the breweries use of water. The brewery was projected to use more water than all the industrial users in Mexicali combined.
Federal officials said that the plant would lose its water permits and the government would seek to negotiate with the company.
