International day of beer

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:

  1. To meet up with friends and enjoy a beer together (we can finally do this now!)
  2. To cheers the people who brew and serve beer
  3. To unite us across the world under one shared ethos: the greatness beer

When is International Beer Day?

International Beer Day is celebrated on the first Friday of every August. This year it will be 6th August 2021.

We also 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 6th of August comes around you can crack open a cold one and raise a glass…if you can wait that long!
