International BEER Day

INTERNATIONAL BEER DAY

The first Friday in August brings a toast to ales, lagers, and pilsners that put the international in Internationa Beer Day. Perhaps there's a porter or a Belgian in your glass. Whether yours is fermented or not --- dark or pale --- hoppy, bitter, smooth --- raise your mug. Lift it high among friends around the world, thanking those who work at brewing delicious beer in your local area. Why? Because International Beer Day brings the world together --- celebrating the beers of all cultures on one remarkable day.

Did you know, this is a day for beer lovers everywhere. In backyards, taverns, pubs, and breweries all over --- people celebrate beer's greatness while showing gratitude to their bartender and waitstaff.

HOW TO OBSERVE #InternationalBeerDay
"A fine beer may be judged with only one sip --- but, it's better to be thoroughly sure." --- Czech Proverb
Better yet, don't miss it. Enjoy a glass with friends. Try a new beer. If you don't know what to try, here are some suggestions.

Take a quiz --- There are several flavor profile quizzes online to help you choose your next beer. You can also take a quiz to find out just how much you know about beer, too. Like this one at Fun Trivia.
Ask the bartender --- They can guide you based on your flavor preferences. Then be sure to thank and tip them, especially if they provided sound advice.
Tour a brewery --- Brewery tours offer samples. Not only will you find a beer you like, but most breweries have a rich history. Even younger breweries include fascinating stories about their founders or their recipes.
Post on social media using #InternationalBeerDay --- Celebrate all who brew such fantastic beer around the globe.

INTERNATIONAL BEER DAY HISTORY
Our research shows the origin of International Beer Day dates back to 2008. Because August is hot in many parts of the world, the first Friday of August was chosen.
