Do you need a reason to drink beer? Any beer lover would shake his head and take a sip. Nevertheless today being the first Friday of August, its been conferred as International Beer Day. The beer souls of western United States started the tradition in 2007 and today the day is celebrated in 207 cities, 50 countries and 6 continents.
The idea was obviously to have one more reason to have beer but it was also to unite the world under the banner of beer, by celebrating the beers of all nations together on a single day.
Like every other day, #InternationalBeerDay is being celebrated by brands globally and some Indian brands have also joined the party. However where brands are really acing the game with creative content for the day, beer brands like Heineken India, Corona India, Fosters India have missed out on such a vital opportunity to connect with their beer-loving community.
Nonetheless, here is a list of interesting content shared by brands on the occasion of #InternationalBeerDay:
