CAMRA Supports Beer Day Britain – Your Country Needs You!
June 15th is Beer Day Britain – the UK’s first national beer day – and your country needs your help and enthusiasm to demonstrate why Britain’s beer and pubs should be recognized as national treasures. June 15th is also the date that Magna Carta was sealed in 1215. This year there will be major national and international events to mark the 800th anniversary. The connection between Magna Carta and Beer Day Britain is that ale is mentioned in Article 35 of the great charter.
‘Let there be throughout our kingdom a single measure for wine and a single measure for ale and a single measure for corn, namely “the London quarter“‘
- To encourage people to drink beer whether that is at the pub, a barbeque, party, picnic, or brewery tap room.
- To raise the profile of beer as Britain’s national drink.
- To make people proud of Britain’s beer and pubs today and of Britain’s heritage as the brewing powerhouse and its role in spreading beer around the world.
- To have a fantastic time drinking and enthusing about our favourite drink.
