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.
This year (2017), we are working with the national beer organisation ‘There’s a Beer For That’ to extend Beer Day Britain into a long weekend called ‘Say Cheers To Beer’ ending on Father’s Day June 18th. Pub companies and brewers across the land have signed up to host a variety of beer related events in their pubs and breweries. Discover which pubs and breweries are hosting events by downloading the free smart phone app Wotzon.
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.
