International Beer Day (4th August 2017) is a global celebration of beer, taking place in pubs, breweries, and backyards all over the world. It is celebrated on the first Friday of August.
It’s a day for beer lovers everywhere to raise a toast to our brewers and bartenders and rejoice in the greatness of beer! Beer forms part of the culture of various beer-drinking nations and has acquired various social traditions and associations, such as beer festivals and a rich pub culture involving activities such as pub crawling or pub games such as bar billiards. Beer is the world’s most widely consumed alcoholic beverage and the third most popular drink after water and tea.
For those who are new to this whole International Beer Day thing we’ve crafted this guide on how to celebrate.
