According to the Awareness Days site, a little obvious, perhaps, join in by raising a glass of beer and saying ‘Cheers to Beer’ at 7pm (19.00) or if you'd prefer to do it earlier, at whatever time of the day suits you best on the 15th June! (But no, we are not supporting alcoholics!).

Perhaps attend a beer festival with some family or friends. Tyndale Beer and Cider Festival is one of the greatest in the UK!

In the present day, pubs and beer are integral to the nations social health and economically, they contribute £22 billion every year to Britain's GDP and contribute £13 billion in revenue tax. One job in brewing generates twenty-one jobs in agriculture, retail, pubs, and the supply chain! Britain’s brewing scene is the most exciting and dynamic it has ever been with more breweries per capita than any other country.

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 integral to England's economy in 1215 that it was mentioned as one of the most significant legal documents in history – the influence of which has been described as England’s greatest export.
