Beer Day Britain is Britain's National Beer Day. The date has been celebrated annually on 15 June since 2015.
The date was chosen because 15 June is also the date that Magna Carta was sealed in 1215 and ale is mentioned in clause 35 of Magna Carta, which states:
- "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"
Beer Day Britain was instigated and driven forward by beer sommelier, writer and drinks educator Jane Peyton. It took place for the first time in 2015. The main focus of the day is the National Cheers To Beer that takes place at 7 pm when people also sing the Cheers To Beer anthem co-written by Jane Peyton.
A beer alone is good but a beer shared is even better lol, so lets raise a pint together and celebrate this awesome day :-)
