Brandy missing from time capsule

Where in the world is Somerton, AZ. Yeah I had to look it up too.

A time capsule from way back in 1985 contained letters, photographs, something called a VHS tape, and even a picture of the late President Reagan.  The time capsule in Somerton, Arizona was however missing a bottle of Mexican brandy.

Pancho Soto, the Somerton street and solid waste supervisor, says he was part of the crew that buried the time capsule and he expected the bottle to be there when they dug it up from Main Street.  He was surprised it was missing.

I’m surprised that

  1. They dug up a “time capsule” 25 years later.  What was the rush?
  2. Mexico has brandy?  I thought Mexico was tequilla-land.
  3. There’s a Somerton, Arizona?!  I went to high school in Scottsdale, AZ, and I’ve never heard of the city.  Hooray for public school education!

I live in Denver, Colorado. This blog is everything about beer, wine, cider, mead and other spirits.
I am a avid homebrewer and winemaker. I’ve been making my own beer and wine for many years. I started making beer when I was in college (mostly because the drinking age in the United States is 21). My first few beers were horrible. The beers are much better now, and I often supply my neighborhood with free beer! It is a great hobby!
