Drink Beer Day
We’ve had World Whisky Day, National Dog Day, what could possibly be next? Drink Beer Day is on the horizon; grab a pint on September 28th and toast to one of the oldest, if not most popular beverages in the history of humankind!
Although it’s not the National Beer Day that falls on April 7th, we feel that Drink Beer Day is far more direct and easy to get your head around, telling you just how to celebrate the day. Moreover, April has already been and is long gone, who’s to complain at another excuse to indulge ourselves in the world’s most popular alcoholic beverage?
Beer varies as widely as the happiness of football fans after deadline day! However, all beer must fall under one of two banners—ale or lager. Historians believe that the brewing of beer, or at least some form of it, has gone on since way back in the Neolithic Era. The oldest brewery still operating today can be found in Bavaria, Germany. The Weihenstephan Brewery has been brewing beer since 1040AD! Still kicking today, the company exports fourteen various beers around the world.
As we’ve already made clear, there’s only one (not-so)sensible way to celebrate Drink Beer Day, and that’s a good old knees up with the family, your friends, or even the neighbours! Find yourself a team of avid beer lovers, either at home or down your local, and make the most of the day. Also, be sure to check for any promotions and giveaways that might be going on in your area.
But wait, before you go, we thought we’d share our top 3 premium beers to look out for, and give one (or all) of them a try yourself:
Late Knights Brewery – Worm Catcher
Part of a family of quirky, hipster-labelled beverages, Worm Catcher is a smooth and fruity IPA. Brewed by Late Nights Brewery, based in Penge, London. Worm Catcher has a nice, medium body accompanied by a sweet tropical aroma, well worth a try!
Bingham’s – Vanilla Stout
Bingham’s Vanilla Stout, brewed in Berkshire, was in fact crowned best beer of 2016 at the Champion Beer of Britain Awards! Vanilla Stout is a 5% Dark Stout. It’s infused with vanilla, as well as dark malts, to create a smooth, very enjoyable beer.
Chapel Down Winery – Curious Brew
Chapel Down Winery believes the success of their Kent-brewed beer is down to the use of quality ingredients, as well as bringing a winemaker’s way of thinking to the beer-brewing process. Curious Brew managed to bag a gold medal at the 2012 International Beer Challenge, comparable to the Oscars of the beer world!
So, you can now add Drink Beer Day to your calendar and look forward to cracking open an ice-cold bevvy, or nipping down to your favourite pub with your wolfpack. Have fun but be responsible! Happy Drinking.
