Happy International Beer Day! The first Friday of every August marks International Beer Day, and as it’s August 6th 2021, that makes it… today! Hooray!
What better excuse to drink your favourite craft beers, get your friends together and kickstart the weekend, than an event geared towards the celebration of one of the world’s most enjoyed drinks: beer.
Beer is one of the oldest drinks in the world. The rich history of local craft beers, huge diversity and influence in the societal norms of so many cultures means that whilst there are plenty of days throughout the year that celebrate beer, craft beer and more, such as Beer Day Britain, we’re never going to turn down an opportunity to get down to our local and drink a pint (or two).
Whether you opt for an ale, lager, stout or hop… the choice is yours. Let’s all come together and share our love of beer.
A Brief History of International Beer Day
This (now) international holiday was first celebrated in America. California, to be exact. Scheduled in August since it’s 2007 birth, International Beer Day was coined by beer-lover Jesse Avshalomov.
Celebrations for International Beer Day increase year-on-year, growing with the popularity of craft beer, everywhere. The celebrations are so big, in fact, that it’s thought that the event spans 207 cities, 80 countries and 6 continents worldwide.
How Can I Celebrate International Beer Day?
Inspired by beer’s ability to bring everyone together, the point of International Beer Day is to get your friends and family together, and give the gift of local craft beers.
From endless games of beer pong to all-day happy hours and everything in between, it’s time to celebrate. Whether that be at home with your family, at the pub with your friends, or during date night with your (beer loving) other half… there are plenty of beers for you to enjoy.

You know you want to.
