It looks like somebody in California threw this together and hoped viral advertising would catch on. I'm not sure if this will go international but I'm down!

A celebration that can happen on EVERY day of the year!
August 5th just happens to be the wedding anniversary day for the wife and me.
Double bonus!

There are a lot of unofficial random beer drinking holidays in the US.

New Beer's Eve - April 6th
National Beer Day - April 7th
National Homebrew Day - May 7th
American Craft Beer Week - Starts on the 3rd Monday in May and goes for a week
International Beer Day - Aug. 5th
National Beer Lover's Day - Sept. 7th
National Drink a Beer Day - Sept. 28th
American Beer Day - Oct. 27th

National Beer Day (April 7th) is the only with with a historically significant date.

April 7th is National Beer Day here in the US. In 1933 during the prohibition era, the Cullen-Harrison Act was signed into law by President Franklin Roosevelt on March 23rd. That law was enacted on April 7th allowing the brewing and sale of beer in the United States again as long as it was < 3.2% (4% ABV). It's said that people waited in line overnight on April 6th outside Milwaukee breweries in order to legally buy beer for the first time in over 13 years. As a result, April 7th is known as National Beer Day and April 6th is called New Beers Eve.


National Beer Days around the world -

March 1st - Iceland
April 6th - England
April 7th - USA
April 23rd - Germany

Umm...got it. Thanks. I did not think it was special or unique, just neat that it lined up with my birthday.

Kind of a random response to a (somewhat) old thread. Thanks for the info!
