Happy International Beer Day everyone! International Beer Day is a celebration on the first Friday of every August founded in 2007 in Santa Cruz, California. Since IBD has started in 2007, it has grown from a local size event to a worldwide celebration. According to Wikipedia, IBD has 3 main purposes:
- To gather with friends and enjoy the taste of beer
- To celebrate those responsible for brewing and serving beer
- To unite the world under the banner of beer, by celebrating the beers of all nations together on a single day
People are encouraged to buy each other drinks on this day to give the “gift of beer.” So when you go out today, be sure to buy someone a beer!
