Hello Beer Lovers – welcome to the website for Britain’s national beer day held annually on June 15th. Please join us to celebrate Britain’s national alcoholic drink and help us spread beery love throughout the land.
The idea for Beer Day Britain is that beer lovers take ‘ownership’ of the day and spread the word, build support and anticipation, and do some beer related activity such as go to the pub, arrange events, host parties, visit a brewery, or brew a celebration ale, but above all have a great time drinking beer on June 15th!
National Cheers To Beer
Please join us by raising a glass of beer and saying ‘Cheers to Beer’ on June 15th at 7pm (19.00) and post a message and photo on social media with the hashtag #CheersToBeer so we can trend on Twitter as we did in previous years.
Why is Beer Day Britain on June 15th?
Beer Day Britain is on June 15th and that is also the date Magna Carta was sealed in 1215. Article 35 of the great charter stated:
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.
Ale was so important in England in 1215 that it was mentioned in one of the most significant legal documents in history. Today beer and pubs are still central to British life.
