Beer Day Britain
Jun 15 @ 7:00 pm – 7:00 pm

Beer Day Britain will be taking place on 15 June 2018.

The idea is simple – for people to drink beer, ideally in a pub. The focus of the day is the National Cheers to Beer at 7pm, which entails raising a glass of beer, saying “Cheers to Beer” and posting a social media message tagged #CheerstoBeer.

The event is organised by beer sommelier Jane Peyton and supported by a coalition of brewers, pubs, retailers and beer drinkers. The aim is to encourage people to drink beer, raise its profile and celebrate Britain’s brewing scene.

15 June was chosen for the event because it is also the date that Magna Carta was sealed in 1215. The document mentioned ale by saying “Let there be throughout our kingdom a single measure for wine and a single measure for ale and a single measure for corn, namely the London quarter.”

This year the celebration will extend over the weekend to Father’s Day on 17 June, making it a perfect time to visit local pubs and breweries.
