International Beer Day internationally

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.

Its promotors recommend three aims in celebrating the day:

  • To gather with friends and enjoy the deliciousness that is beer.
  • To celebrate the dedicated men and women who brew and serve our beer.
  • To bring the world together by celebrating the beers of all nations and cultures on this one remarkable day.


  • Did you know? The beer ‘Corona’ is marketed in Spain as ‘Coronita’ because the Spanish royal family are the trademark owners of ‘corona’ (Spanish for ‘crown’).
  • Did you know? Until 2011, beer was not considered an alcoholic drink in Russia.
  • Did you know? To produce one beer, you need exactly 1 litre of water, 160 g of malt, 5 g of yeast and 2 g of hops.
  • Did you know? The most common type of beer is lager. Its share in the world consumption reaches up to 80%.
