National Beer Lovers Day If you love beer, September 7 is your day! National Beer Lovers Day, also spelled National Beer Lover’s Day, is an unofficial annual holiday celebrating one of the most popular alcoholic drinks, people who brew beer, and, of course, everyone who enjoys it!

Beer is one of the oldest alcoholic drinks known to humanity. It is produced by the brewing and fermentation of natural sources of starch, most commonly cereal grains. Beer is typically made from malted barley, although other grains such as wheat, corn, oats and rice are also used. Less common starch sources include agave, cassava root, millet, and sorghum. Three other basic ingredients required to brew beer are water, brewer’s yeast, and hops.

The two main beer types are ales and lagers. Ales are brewed using warm fermentation, and lagers are brewed at low temperatures. Each category includes numerous varieties. For example, popular varieties of ale include brown ale, pale ale, India pale ale, golden ale, Scotch ale, barley wine, old ale, Belgian ale, etc. Lagers are typically divided into amber, dark, and pale; each variations has many styles.

Given the popularity of beer, it is not surprising that there are a lot of beer-inspired holidays, including National Beer Lovers Day. It is unknown who invented it or why it is celebrated in September, but do you really need an explanation to celebrate this amazing holiday?
