Raise a glass to International Beer Day!
International Beer Day, taking place annually on the first Friday of August, is the worldwide celebration of the beloved drink – beer. This holiday is celebrated all over the globe as people gather in pubs, breweries, backyards and more. But it’s more than just a day for drinking, as it’s original purpose was to gather friends together to enjoy each other’s company and raise a glass to the men and women who brew and serve our beers. Not only that, but also International Beer Day is a way of bringing together people of all nations and cultures in one day to celebrate the delicious beer they have been providing us for centuries. Check out these great ideas on how to celebrate the right way tomorrow.
