Friday 4 July 2017, was observed as the International Beer day, which is aimed at celebrating the beer product, which has become an indispensable commodity in the world especially in Cameroon.
Cameroon is one of the highest beer consumers in Africa, with Nigeria at the top. Any event that takes place in Cameroon is incomplete without some bottles of the “precious liquor” as it has been made to be. Football gatherings are highly sponsored by brewery industries for example, the “33 Export” beer is being portrayed as the number one football supporter in Cameroon.
The day which was founded in 2007 in Santa Cruz, California in the United States, to be celebrated every first Friday of August, is aimed at honouring those responsible for brewing and serving beer.
Everyone is expected to offer at least a beer to a friend, so that they enjoy the taste together while showing gratitude to bartenders and brewers.
