In honour of International Beer Day we’ve created a quiz dedicated to the frothy favourite. From Ireland’s famous “black stuff” to Holland’s honoured Heineken, India’s mighty Kingfisher to Thailand’s refreshing Singha, pick a beer and see where you should travel in 2021.
International Beer Day
Founded in 2007 by Jesse Avshalomov, International Beer Day started out as a small local event in Santa Cruz, California, but has since grown into a global celebration spanning 207 cities, 80 countries and 6 continents. International Beer Day has three main purposes; firstly (and most importantly) to enjoy the taste of beer with your friends, secondly to celebrate brewers, breweries and bartenders around the world and finally, to unite everyone under the banner of beer for one special day.
- Did you know beer is the third-most popular drink on Earth (after water and tea)?
- In 2016, people consumed nearly 50 billion gallons of beer worldwide.
- In 2019, the Czech Republic took the crown for the country that drinks the most beer.
- The world’s longest hangover is said to have lasted a week after a Scotsman consumed 60 pints of beer.
- At any given time 0.7% of the world are drunk, so 50 million people are drunk right now.
If you’re looking for a beer trip or brewery experience, then look no further than Wonders of Ireland and Britain. On Day 6 you’ll head to the Irish capital of Dublin, home to world-famous Guinness. You’ll beat the crowds as you explore the Guinness Brewery for a tour of the Storehouse, which includes a tasting technique demonstration. After which, you’ll spend the rest of the afternoon exploring Temple Bar, Dublin’s buzzing riverside neighbourhood that’s home to cosy pubs hosting live folk music, boutique shops and atmospheric restaurants.
