Beer and its history in Argentina

in beer •  last year


Hello dear friends of steemit, thank you for being present on my blog and accompanying with reading my post.

Before starting I want to clarify that I am Spanish speaking, I read and write only in Spanish, unfortunately English does not understand or write, all my work I do with the help of the translator google, so I want to apologize for any mistakes that may Arise in translation.

The history of beer was always something that caught my attention, today I do not drink alcohol, but in my youth I have consumed and above all beer.

I was fortunate to work in a supermarket, having many varieties of beer at my fingertips, as the saying goes the good seller has to know what he sells, for that reason I tried them all, from here arises my interest to know the history of The beer of my country, but for one thing or another I have been postponing until today, reading the post here on the platform I cross with the @uwelang post where it refers to all the people who write on this topic in And invites others to write their experiences related to the topic.

That is why and thanks to @uwelang I determined to inform me about the history of the beer of my country and I want to share with you.

The beer was known in my country thanks to the arrival of the Europeans to our continent, the drinks traveled in boats and the mainly German and British immigrants consumed, but later they began to consume the Argentineans.

The great distances, the problems of communication, the lack of refrigeration of the drinks caused that they lose quality, this reason to produce the drinks in my country.

In the middle of century XVIII the first factories of beers founded by immigrants appeared, the main components like malta and hops had to bring of their country of origin, by the poor quality of the ground the waters used for the elaboration of the beer was of Rain, which jealously kept in barrels.

Later years began to sow malt and hop on Argentine soil, Today Argentina is an exporter of excellent hops quality.

In a pamphlet published by José María Peña at a brewery exhibition in 1999 in the City of Buenos Aires, it refers to the first date of Argentine brewing in 1806, another source indicates that it was in 1744 on the street San Francisco today called Moreno in the city of Buenos Aires.

The researcher Domingo Vives takes the story to the year 1738, presenting as evidence some documents, which indicates that the first Argentine brewery was called the Zervezeria, these would be the oldest data known to date.

The Englishman Thomas Stuart, acquires a parcel of land, where today it would be Av. Of the Liberator and Emerald there constructs a building where it positions the factory the zervezeria.

In a census of the year 1744 is registered in the zervezeria to Thomas Stuart of 48 years of age, Juan Ittin of 30 years of age, Roberto Bettan of 20 years of age and six black slaves working in the zevezeria, this is the The only official register indicating that the factory operated with nine operators.

He finishes his research report Domingo Vives saying.

Given the lack of documentation to indicate otherwise, the first factory of Beer in Argentina is the Zervezeria, inaugurated in 1738.

At present, Argentina has a large number of breweries, and I would like to briefly review some of them.
