International Beer Day
Date When Celebrated : First Friday in August (Prior to 2013, this holiday was always on August 5)
International Beer Day is a day to celebrate and savor the world's most popular alcoholic beverage. Raise a glass of beer today to toast both breweries and bartenders. It is truly a global celebration, enjoyed by people over 50 countries around the world.

Origin of International Beer Day:
The Association of California Brewers created this special holiday in 2007, in Santa Cruz, California.
From 2017-2012, the Association of California Brewers established this holiday on August 5th. In 2013, they changed it to the first Friday of August. Presumably, they did this to allow us to celebrate, and not have to get up to go to work the next day.
