International Beer Day 2022
Our deals are still pending...but you can still read up on how best to celebrate when the time arises!
International Beer Day is celebrated on the first Friday of every August. This year it will be 5th August 2022.
International Beer Day is designed to express thanks to all the hundreds of amazing craftspeople involved in providing you with beer. Thank you to all the brewers, bar staff, beer mixologists and specialists. In the spirit of celebrating the craft, people are encouraged to explore something they wouldn’t normally go for, sipping outside their beer comfort zone, so to speak.
A day dedicated to honouring our favourite drink and its associations. And we have even more reason to celebrate this year, as we can now actually go and enjoy a proper beer in a proper pub!
The day's founder has outlined 3 key reasons for the celebration:
As we are sure you are aware, pubs and bars have opened their doors, so we urge you to go and visit. Pop down to your local, discover a new gem, visit a craft taproom, if the weather permits and you live in London read our article on London Pub Gardens. If you're feeling adventurous try a bar crawl, Bermondsey Beer Mile in London, Otley Run in Leeds, Seven-Legged crawl in Nottingham and Mumbles Mile in Swansea are famous ones but a little research of your area will give you many options. Or, you could even go for a bottomless beer brunch, BrewDog have some good places.
With craft as a focus, IBD is the perhaps excuse to sample something you've always been interested in but not had a chance to try. Our favourite way to enjoy the day is with pint of craft beer pulled fresh from The SUB.
We usually offer some great deals on craft to help celebrate the event. The perfect time to discover new craft beers. We aren't ready just yet, but please keep checking back, or sign up to our newsletter to be the first to hear when we are!
All done - thanks!
In the meantime, whilst you wait for us to release our deals we suggest ordering some interesting beers from the Beerwulf assortment. Try a new style, we have cases of lagers and IPAs, and styles from Belgium and Germany. Alongside this we have cases from talented brewers such as Fourpure, Ninkasi and Texels, there’s a big world of beer out there. Or really get in the spirit of things by giving the gift of beer. That’s one of our favourite things to do, besides drinking it ourselves. Make a beer lover’s day by sending them a beer case, straight to their door!
Another great way to honour the day is reading about beer. Afterall, knowledge is power. We have lots of great articles that will show you how to navigate through the magical maze of specialty beer.
So, whether you’re buying for yourself, gifting a friend or both, remember to buy in advance. You want to allow enough time for them to chill in the fridge. That means when the 5th of August comes around you can crack open a cold one and raise a glass…if you can wait that long!
