Celebrated the first Friday of August, International Beer Day is a time to enjoy, responsibly, that most ancient of beverages.
Archaeologists have found beer recipes on tablets dated to 4300 B.C., and beer has been found in ceramics dated to 3400 B.C.
International Beer Day is a fairly new holiday. It was founded in 2007 in Santa Cruz, California by Jesse Avshalomov.
From 2007 through 2012, International Beer Day was celebrated on August 5th. After International Beer Day 2012, the founders took a poll of fans and chose to move the holiday to the first Friday in August.
