BBPA champions Beer Day Britain

BBPA logo

Beer Day Britain, the event devoted to the nation’s favourite drink, has arrived – and the British Beer and Pub Association (BBPA) is once again celebrating the occasion!

Beer lovers from across the country will join in raising a glass and saying ‘Cheers to Beer’ at 7pm this Friday, the same date the Magna Carta was sealed in 1215. People can also use the hashtag #CheersToBeer to share their celebrations on social media.

Beer Day Britain, now in its fourth year, aims to raise the profile of beer as Britain’s national drink. It was instigated by Beer Sommelier Jane Peyton and is supported by major organisations in the beer industry including Britain’s Beer Alliance, the British Beer & Pub Association, the Society of Independent Brewers, Campaign for Real Ale and Cask Marque amongst others.

BBPA Chief Executive Brigid Simmonds comments:

“Beer Day Britain is always a fantastic celebration of our great national drink and its history, and this year won’t be any different, with hundreds of thousands of people from across the country heading to the Great British pub to say ‘Cheers to Beer!’ this Friday.”
