What is International Beer Day?

First marked in 2008, International Beer Day is recognised every year on the first Friday in August – the perfect day of the week to enjoy a pint of the good stuff.

It’s a global day of celebration for bars, breweries and pubs alike with lovers of the drink encouraged to raise a glass and toast their favourite tipple.

Organisers say the event is celebrated in more than 200 cities across the world.

What makes the perfect pint?

Let’s look at what goes into pouring the perfect beer.

Hold your glass at a 45-degree angle, just below the tap – make sure it doesn’t touch!

Open the tap quickly and swiftly, filling the glass halfway.

Slowly bring the glass to an upright position to give your pint the perfect head.
