"He was a wise man who invented beer," said Plato. It's a nice piece of wisdom, isn't it? After all, booze is a celebration in itself. It's one of the most popular drinks that is cheered for chills and relaxation with loved ones. To cherish the love and socialization that beer brings in the lives of people, International Beer Day is celebrated worldwide every first Friday of August. The festival was founded in 2007 in Santa Cruz, California, by Jesse Avshalomov. It was first held as a localized event in the western United States, and it grew into a worldwide celebration spanning 207 cities, 80 countries, and 6 continents.
This year, International Beer Day falls on the third day of August. The declared purpose of this carousal is to gather with friends and enjoy, and thank the manufacturers and bartenders who are responsible for brewing and serving beer, and to gather the world together under the banner of beer and celebrate the beers of different countries.
It is widely celebrated throughout the United States and in some European and Asian countries, in pubs, breweries, and backyards. August was chosen as the month of celebration for its summer weather and distance from other beer celebrations. International Beer Day was celebrated on August 5 from 2007 to 2012, but after the founders took a poll of fans, the holiday was moved to the first Friday of every August.
Basically, it's a huge celebration with your folks that will give a taste of new beers, music, and lots of memories. There are some cool things you can do on this day. Do visit your local watering hole and try a new beer, as it's a big beer world out there filled with delicious flavors and unknown styles. Also, thank the ones who have devoted their lives to give you some awesome choice of beers. Appreciate their hard work by leaving a tip.
Do not celebrate this day alone. Go out and hop some pubs and bars with some folks and enjoy the music along with the taste of delicious lager. You can explore beers from so many countries, so do not spend this day at home. Also, try some international award-winning beers.
So, let's raise our glass to International Beer Day, because there is no better way to celebrate the happiness of drinking beer than to have a glass on the day named for it. In addition, continue celebrating the goodness of beer through the month, because this is the month of International Beer Day.
