Uniting the world through Beer
Friday is International Beer Day (IBD) and it\'s great timing -- what better way to start off the weekend than with a cold glass of your faithful?
Friday is International Beer Day (IBD) and it's great timing -- what better way to start off the weekend than with a cold glass of your faithful?
The Day was started in 2007 by a California man named Jesse Avshalomov and his colleagues who simply wanted to designate a day where people could celebrate the alcoholic beverage.
Since its inception, International Beer Day has grown from a small localised event in the western United States into a worldwide celebration spanning 207 cities, 50 countries and six continents.
The celebration is marked on the first Friday of every August. This year, IBD falls on August 5, which happens to be the date of its inception.
Specifically, it has three declared purposes: To gather with friends and enjoy the taste of beer, to celebrate those responsible for brewing and serving beer and to unite the world under the banner of beer, by celebrating the beers of all nations together on a single day.
The Pulitzer award winning columnist, Dave Barry wrote, “Without question, the greatest invention in the history of mankind is beer.
Oh, I grant you that the wheel was also a fine invention, but the wheel does not go nearly as well with pizza.” So, whether you’re a lager lover or a pale ale connoisseur, there’s no excuse not to head to the pub this Friday.
