Today is the International Beer Day. This celebration started in 2007 and was an idea of Jesse Avshalomov, Evan Hamilton, Aaron Araki, and Richard Hernández. What this group of friends really wanted was to choose a day to meet and that had beer as the main character. Thus, the first meeting took place in a small bar in Santa Cruz, California.

But the little reunion had a big impact. So much so that today this celebration has spread to 6 continents, in more than 200 cities. In all of them, the objective of these meetings is to enjoy good company, honor those who prepare the beer and unite cultures and places through a common pleasure.

Beer is the most widely consumed alcoholic beverage in the world. It seems that it was manufactured for the first time about 12,000 thousand years ago. In addition, it has very beneficial properties for health. For example, it reduces cardiovascular risk, prevents the formation of stones in the kidney, strengthens bones ..,

In addition, thanks to the high mineral content of beer, it provides other benefits such as, for example, strengthening bones. Or the delay in cellular aging, thanks to the hops with which the beer is made.

So nothing better than some very cold beers to celebrate this day. And where better than in one of the best terraces in Madrid? Of course: we are talking about El Anciano Rey de los Vinos. Come on, we’re waiting for you.

Happy International Beer Day!
