Amidst such chaotic circumstances, the whole world is ready to celebrate any day if given a chance. So to people who love to drink and appreciate, this day is exclusively for them. This year, International Beer Day will be celebrated on Friday, 6 August 2021. Drinking is not earmarked for any particular day, but a reason always uplifts the aura of the celebration. International Beer Day was the brainchild of Jesse Avshalomov, who came up with the idea in 2007. People first started celebrating this day in Santa Cruz, California.
Let’s take a sneak-peak and check what the city’s top restaurants and pubs are offering.
