International Beer Day was founded in 2007, and takes place in pubs, clubs, bars, breweries, beer gardens and back yards all over the world, giving makers, lovers and sellers of beer another reason to raise a glass.
According to the founders of International Beer Day, the purpose is threefold:
- To gather with friends and enjoy the deliciousness that is beer.
- To celebrate the dedicated men and women who brew and serve our beer.
- To bring the world together under the united banner of beer, by celebrating the beers of all nations and cultures together on this one remarkable day.
In addition to offline events, which are intended to celebrate the establishments who produce beer, sell beer and give folks a place to enjoy beer, you can also show your support online by RSVPing to the very popular International Beer Day Event on Facebook, or by tagging everything on August 5th with #IntlBeerDay
