International Beer Day – 3 simple steps how to celebrate it




by Stephen Bellamy

On International Beer Day it is officially legal to cool yourself down with a beer early in the morning – no matter that it is a working day. You can drink beer after work on any other day. But beer before/during work – only today, on the first Friday of August every year.

This is the day when thousands of beer gardens, bars, pubs, brewers and consumers from all the important UN member states celebrate with a “Cheers!” the existence of our favourite drink.
