Jane Peyton, instigator and project manager of Beer Day Britain commented ‘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. Seven out of ten drinks sold in a pub are beer and a big percentage of that is cask ale. Without beer, pubs would be wine bars. Now we have an official day to celebrate beer in Britain so please join us for a national party so we can make Beer Day Britain the best beer fiesta in the world!’
