Beer Day Britain

Beer Day Britain is an annual celebration on the 15th June for all beer lovers and it celebrates all beer including traditional ales, mainstream lagers, and limited edition craft beer and everything in between no matter where it is brewed or who owns the brewing company.

The 15th June is significant because that is also the date Magna Carta was sealed in 1215. The great charter mentions ale in Article 35.

‘Let there be throughout our kingdom a single measure for wine and a single measure for ale and a single measure for corn…..’

Ale was so important in England in 1215 that it was cited in one of the most significant legal documents in history.  Today beer and pubs are still central to British life and seven out of 10 drinks sold in a pub are beer.

Britain has a dynamic brewing scene and an unmatched heritage in spreading the love and knowledge of beer around the world.  More styles of beer first brewed in Britain are now brewed overseas than those of any other brewing nation. These include India Pale Ale, Pale Ale, Porter, Stout, Imperial Russian Stout, Mild, Bitter, Barley Wine, Brown Ale, and Scotch Ale.

Our hotels offer a selection of lagers, ales and bitters including local varieties, so why not pop in a celebrate with a pint this weekend or see how else you can get involved below.
