7 April – Beer Day
Today is Beer Day! Spread the word!
People have been brewing beer ever since they began cultivating domesticated grains 8 000 years ago. Beer has been an important part of human culture ever since. For example, over 4 000 years ago an anonymous poet wrote an ode to Ninkasi — the Sumerian goddess of beer and brewing! Today, beer is the third most popular beverage in the world behind water and tea.
Whether you prefer pale ale, stout or lager; enjoy a pint of your favourite beer today to celebrate Beer Day!
