History of Polar Beer
The brand Polar , was registered on August 21, 1916 and the first Polar beer , was produced in April 1911, in the factory of Compañía Cervezera Internacional SA, in Havana, Cuba. In Venezuela it was in 1941 in a factory located in Antímano to the west of Caracas, then in 1943 Carlos Roubicek, who modified the formula, joined Cervecería Polar as master brewer. Since then, the brand managed to grow until it consolidated itself as the first beer in Venezuela in terms of sales, partly due to the advantage that it was one of the few national brewers competing with small regional breweries.
Between 1999 and 2002 there was a change in the Venezuelan consumer's taste that caused Polar beer to be displaced from the first place of consumption by light beers,1 since 2008 Polar Light replaces that place of preference.
