There’s a thing in GB called Beer Day Britain. It’s where the English, Scots and Welsh celebrate their local independent pubs and breweries. Without wanting to sound like Al Murray The Pub Landlord, they drink beautiful British beer in beautiful British pubs – apart from the ones who drink Carlsberg or Guinness. It’s a promotional tool. Not to be left out, cos we usually are, there’s now a thing called Beer Day NI. I’ve unashamedly created it. It’s on the same day, 15th June.
So all I’m asking is a small favour. On 15th June, grab a beer from a Northern Irish brewery (a full list of NI breweries is published here) and post a photo to social media with the hashtag #BeerDayNI.
Brewers, maybe on June 15th you could post a photo of your brewery or you brewing?
Off licences, maybe on June 15th you could post a photo of your locally brewed stock?
Whatever you do and however you promote the day, give thanks to our local brewers for continuing to work during Covid restrictions and here’s to us supporting the outlets that support them.
Sláinte and cheers.
