History of beer Cristal
Cristal was born in 1879 and was created by two American entrepreneurs, Jacobo Backus and Howard Johnston. They joined forces to create the Fábrica Sudamericana de Hielo, which today is the Unión de Cervecerías Peruanas Backus y Johnston SAA.
Until 1922, the company commercialized different brands of beer. From that year on, it was decided to launch the famous and well-known lager "La Rubia" Cristal .
