Roll Out is proud to announce a partnership with Cerveza Xteca, a local Chicano founded and operated beer company. Founders Mario Lopez, Fred Sotelo and Javier the X-Man, radio personality of local San Diego station Magic 925, are friends who grew up here in San Diego’s Fourth District. These Encanto boys, brought a new concept to the San Diego craft beer scene, Mexican-American lager.
Roll Out will be selling Cerveza Xteca at upcoming roller derby games to help fund its nonprofit operations. These beer sales will help create opportunities for local children to participate in roller derby and roller skate activities at the new facility created by Derby United in Encanto. These sales will also help fund community open houses, art shows, health fairs and other events and activities as well as the organization’s day-to-day operations.
When asked about the new partnership, Roll Out Founder and Board Chair, Nili Goldfarb said, “When you come to an event and enjoy a delicious Xteca at the Roll Out sponsored bar, you are buying a delicious beer. However, you are also supporting a Chicano brewer and local business owners. You are removing financial barriers for children who want to play roller derby. You are lifting up your community and helping it thrive.” Event goers can enjoy this cold beverage and feel great about their contributions to the San Diego and District 4.
Please always enjoy Xteca responsibly. Alcoholic beverages may only be sold and consumed on-site and by guest 21 and over with valid ID. Please use designated drivers, carpooling and ride share to get to and from Roll Out events safely.
