With pubs and taprooms re-opening, the upcoming Beer Day Britain is another important occasion to celebrate and drink beer. Beer Day Britain (the annual national beer day) will happen again on June 15th.
The focus of the day is the National Cheers To Beer (#cheerstobeer) toast at 7pm. This simple activity is not only marked across the UK but by beer drinkers around the world who participate too. So many people join in each year on June 15th that #cheerstobeer trends on social media, even in 2020 when the lockdown meant pubs were closed, as people celebrated by drinking beer at home instead.
Britons have repeatedly said throughout the pandemic how much they miss meeting friends in the pub or taproom so Beer Day Britain is a perfect reason to get together for a beer. Taprooms and pubs will be participating this year with special events and quizzes.
Beer Sommelier Jane Peyton, Instigator and Project Manager of Beer Day Britain commented “Britain historically had the biggest influence in spreading the love of beer around the world. More styles of beer first brewed in this country are now brewed around the world than those of any other brewing nation. These include India Pale Ale, Pale Ale, Porter, Stout, Imperial Russian Stout, Mild, Bitter, Barley Wine, Brown Ale, and Scotch Ale.
We have so much to be proud of with Britain’s vibrant brewing heritage and current brewing scene and the fact that our pubs are a cornerstone of the social life of the nation.
Beer Day Britain is about celebrating a drink that unites humans regardless of their culture. During the pandemic we have been physically isolated from socialising with friends, and although continued social distancing measures will mean Beer Day Britain 2021 is different to previous years we can still raise a glass in cheers. Just remember to take a photo to post on social media with the hashtag #cheerstobeer at 7pm on June 15th and you’ll be part of Beer Day Britain.”
