DALLAS -- It's the first Friday of August, so bosses don't be surprised if a few folks suddenly called in sick this morning. But who can blame you for wanting to ditch work to slam a few suds on International Beer Day, right?
But on this glorious holiday, there are rules. Like the obvious, don't drink and drive. But there's also some official rules for beer lovers.
Like gathering with friends and enjoying the taste of beer, celebrating those responsible for brewing and serving beer and finally, uniting the world under the banner of beer by celebrating the beers of all nations on a single day.
So, if you’re a beer drinker, this is the day to leave the light stuff on the shelf.
Have fun out there, and turn that happy hour into a happy day. Cheers!
