At Sunset World, we celebrated International Beer Day with our guests on last August 4. On the occasion of this celebration, here are the 10 best beer festivals in Mexico.

Beer is one of the most popular and perhaps the oldest beverage in the world. It was first brewed by the Sumerians nine thousand years ago in the Middle East, today Iraq. They considered it a gift from the gods and brewed it from four elements: water, malt, hops and yeast. They also used it in their religious and social practices.

Beer has played a very important role in society. Beer festivals are an opportunity to enjoy beer in the company of friends, family and loved ones; to recognize the work of those responsible for brewing and serving it; and to unite the world by celebrating beers from all nations and cultures.

Besides, it is rich in vitamins, proteins, folic acid and antioxidants, and some studies point out that its moderate consumption is associated with cardiovascular benefits, bone health and even against obesity. Of course, always within a moderate consumption and a balanced diet.

Nowadays, the beer industry has become one of the most important for the Mexican economy, characterized by its high quality and innovation reflected in diverse brands and flavors. In fact, Mexico has positioned itself as the fourth largest international producer of this elixir of the gods.
