About Beer Day Britain

Beer Day Britain is an annual celebration on June 15th for all beer lovers and it celebrates beer from mainstream lager to limited edition craft beer and everything in between no matter where it is brewed.

June 15th is significant because that is also the date Magna Carta was sealed in 1215. The great charter mentions ale in Article 35.

‘Let there be throughout our kingdom a single measure for wine and a single measure for ale and a single measure for corn…..’

Ale was so important in England in 1215 that it was cited in one of the most significant legal documents in history.  Today beer and pubs are still central to British life and seven out of 10 drinks sold in a pub are beer.
