International Beer Day is observed on the first Friday of every August. This year it will be celebrated on August 2. International Beer Day is a worldwide celebration of beer taking place breweries, backyards and pubs all over the world. It is a day for all beer lovers everywhere to raise a toast to our brewers and bartenders and rejoice in the greatness of beer. This day was created to celebrate the production, consumption and enjoyment of the beer. Beer is an alcoholic beverage made by dissolving sugars found in cereal grains such as wheat or barley. Many beers around the world are steeped with hops, herbs or fruits that add flavour to the drink.
“Beer. It always seems like such a good idea at the time, doesn’t it? What’s worse is beer seems like an even better idea after you’ve had some beer.” – Steven Hall.
