the origin of international beer day

international beer day was conceived by jesse avshalomov, and was founded in 2007 by avshalomov, evan hamilton, aaron araki, and richard hernandez as a celebration of beer and the people who provide it.

As avshalomov tells it:
"a few years back a group of friends and i decided that there needed to be a day in celebration of all things beer, a day in thanks to the people who produce and provide our favorite beverage. So we invented international beer day, convinced our local bar to celebrate on august 5th, made a little website for it, gave thanks to the beer industry, and had a good-ol' time.

Then we started receiving emails from people who had found the ibd website and held their own celebrations in england and south africa. We knew then that we needed to take our celebration to the world.

Ever since we've been working each year to bring the celebration to more and more people, and this year we've hit over 100 celebrations! We're working super hard to make this year's celebration epic, we've even had a classy logo and new website designed, so we hope you have yourself an awesome international beer day."
And wasn't International IPA day yesterday?

I placed an empty Korny next to the keezer with care, in hopes of St. Hoppy Kolsch would soon be there....


But nada....I'm so bummed. I must have been a bad homebrewer...
