Panama Lager Beer is the most popular beer in Panama together with Atlas beer. Panama is known for being a happy country, full of festivities, beer drinking and year-round fairs.
A report from the General Comptroller Office (Contraloría General de la República) revealed that 89 million liters of beer were consumed in Panama from January to April in 2014. This represents a new record, exceeding the previous year consumption of beer by 5.49 percent.
The number is staggering. Panama is drinking 22.25 million liters of beer per month which represents a daily consumption of around 24,000 liters. No wonder we are considered one of the happiest countries in the world. Skol!
The beer mug has been with me for a long time. It was a Christmas present while I worked for a sugar mill in the city of Aguadulce. It was handcrafted expressly for Anhauser Busch, Inc. in 1991. It is considered a Collectors Series—“The Season’s Best”. The idea was to promote the world’s famous Budweiser Clydesdale 8-horse hitch and wagon created by artist Susan Sampson. It was manufactured in Brazil.
It is a beautiful item which I plan to keep as a sentimental souvenir of my life as a Comptroller in Compañía Azucarera La Estrella, S.A. in Aguadulce.
