Some popular Pilsner options to try on National Drink Beer Day include Pilsner Urquell, Victory Prima Pils, and Trumer Pils.
2. Rich and Flavorful: Stout
If you’re in the mood for something bolder and more robust, a Stout is the perfect choice. Stouts are dark, full-bodied beers with flavors of roasted malt, coffee, and chocolate. Guinness Draught, Founders Breakfast Stout, and Left Hand Milk Stout are some popular options to consider.
3. Hoppy and Bitter: India Pale Ale (IPA)
For hop lovers, an India Pale Ale (IPA) is a must-try. IPAs are known for their strong hop bitterness, floral aromas, and citrusy flavors. Some popular IPAs to enjoy on National Drink Beer Day include Stone IPA, Dogfish Head 60 Minute IPA, and Sierra Nevada Torpedo Extra IPA.
These are just a few examples of the wide variety of beers available to celebrate National Drink Beer Day. Whether you prefer light and crisp or bold and flavorful, there’s a brew out there that will satisfy your taste buds.
Support Local Breweries
In addition to trying out different beers, National Drink Beer Day is also a great opportunity to support local breweries. Many craft breweries offer unique and innovative brews that you won’t find in your typical grocery store. By visiting a local brewery or purchasing their beers, you’re not only enjoying a delicious beverage but also contributing to the growth of small businesses in your community.
Gather with Friends
Beer has a way of bringing people together, and National Drink Beer Day is the perfect excuse to gather with friends and enjoy a pint or two. Whether you host a beer tasting party, visit a local brewery with your buddies, or simply relax at home with some good company, the camaraderie that comes with sharing a love for beer is something to be cherished.
Remember to Drink Responsibly
While National Drink Beer Day is all about celebrating and enjoying beer, it’s important to do so responsibly. Make sure to pace yourself, drink plenty of water, and never drink and drive. If you’re planning to indulge in a few beers, consider arranging for a designated driver or using a ride-sharing service to ensure everyone gets home safely.

Whether you’re a seasoned beer enthusiast or just dipping your toes into the world of craft brews, National Drink Beer Day is the perfect occasion to explore new flavors, support local breweries, and enjoy the company of friends. So, grab a pint, raise your glass, and cheers to this hoppy holiday!
