The first Friday of August is celebrated as International Beer Day every year. Beer is a popular drink in many countries across the world. Over 200 cities across the globe celebrate this day.
The day is celebrated to enjoy different kinds of beer with friends. The day is also celebrated to recognise the work of the people who are brewing and serving the beer.
This day started as a localised event in California, United States, and it has grown into a worldwide celebration.
Jesse Avshalomovn founded the International Beer Day in 2007 in Santa Cruz, California. Initially, it used to be celebrated on August 5, but later it was changed to the first Friday of August. The founders of the day changed the date to the first Friday of August after 2012 following an opinion poll among fans of beer.
This day holds a very big significance for the beer lovers across the globe. This day is celebrated globally in breweries, pubs and backyards. This day brings friends and families closer, and everyone gets to enjoy the greatness of beer. These are the kinds of celebrations, which provide people with an opportunity to just chill, take a break, and spend some time with their loved ones.
