International Beer Day has been celebrated every August 5th since 2008. It’s a chance for people to raise a glass and pay homage to the glorious drink, and it takes place in pubs, beer gardens and backyards across the country. The day began as an occasion on which the craft of brewing could be recognized – and to thank those who brew – but it also quickly evolved into a celebration of bartenders and other beer technicians too. The founders’ aim was that people would gather with friends each IBD to give thanks and enjoy the taste of beer, and that the world would unite under the banner of beer by celebrating beers of all nations.
Of course, a huge number of people don’t need a recognized ‘Day’ to celebrate beer, as this tasty and most often alcoholic drink is such an important part of our culture. Research shows that Americans drink around 6.5 billion gallons of beer annually (but not each!) so that’s approximately 52 billion pints of the stuff. An average of approximately 350 pints per year, or 6 pints per week, each person in the US. Not an insignificant amount…
That’s a lot of times per year that a glass or beer cup is raised to someone’s lips, and all those times present a marketing opportunity for any business, organization or campaign. People are known to be more receptive to messaging when they’re having fun, or when their guard is down slightly due to the effects of alcohol. It’s a great time to point them in your direction by featuring your logo or some messaging on branded beer glasses and other drinkware. That could mean printed beer bottles, branded bottle openers and coasters or novelty items like key tags or beer bottle-shaped Stress Relievers. At EverythingBranded we have so many perfect promotional items for beer festivals, bars, cafes, restaurants and any other kind of place or event at which beer will be served.
It might be the case that you’re a smart micro-brewery or craft beer stall at a beer festival, which has taken great care over keeping a cool identity and making sure the beer brand is perfectly repped on premises and in the marketplace. We stock plenty of promotional beer glasses and other items which are great for branding up and using as stock, or for giveaways and maybe even to put on sale. Beer festivals are big business and people do like to keep a souvenir – what better than a mug or beer glass with your logo or messaging on it? Branded products for bars and other places where beer is taken are a great way to reach customers and friends.
