January 19, 1936: Brewer Worker's Day
Summer comes and in our head only one order appears, in capital letters and red - BIRRA. The beer fills ice cream boxes and bars; it strolls around grills, swimming pools, terraces, patios and rows for bathing. In different formats and colors, the beer comes to brighten our lives, refresh our bodies and lengthen our encounters.
As in all cases, for the product to reach us, there is a large chain of people who do their thing. Beer production has the peculiarity of being “federal”: 80% of the jobs related to industry occur in the interior of the country. In addition, its ingredients are 100% natural and harvested on Argentine soil, which is a great contribution to our economy.
On January 19, the Brewery Worker's Day is celebrated since on that date, but in 1936, the Federation of Brewers and Allied Workers of the Argentine Republic (FOCARA) was created, which currently represents brewing, malting, yeast and related workers under the name Argentine Federation of Brewers and Allied Workers (FATCA).
With about 40 litres per capita per year, beer represents — roughly — 60% of the consumption of alcoholic beverages among Argentines. There are also wine, fernet and so many other appetizers, but here we love beer above all things.
For this reason, today more than ever, we want to thank the brewing workers for bringing us our beer every day. Cheers!
