Raise a Pint: International Beer Day 2019

Beer Festivals August

A typical lazy summer day might including lounging by the pool, going to the beach, having barbecues, and sipping a few frothy brews. There’s nothing wrong with tipping back a few pints. In fact, according to Brewers Association of Australia, beer is actually good for you. They say it contains a high level of silicon which increases the calcium deposits and minerals for healthy bone tissue. They also report a Finnish study found that each bottle of beer you drink reduces the risk of developing kidney stones by 40%. They also say beer is full of several B vitamins (B1, B2, B6 and B12).

But… as with most everything, drink in moderation. Don’t follow the ways of the ancient Egyptians who built the pyramids while consuming about four liters a day. That’s a lot of beer!

The ancient Egyptians apparently were beer lovers. Lucky for all of us current-day beer lovers, August 2, 2019 is International Beer Day!

In celebration of this day, I’ve prepared a list of beer-related festivals throughout the country in the month of August. Depending on your love of hops, grain, and yeast, you may consider a weekend trip or finding a clinical or anatomic laboratory contract assignment near one of these events.

There are so many to choose from in the serious and profitable business of craft brewing. According to the Brewers Association  retail dollar sales of craft beer now accounts for more than 24% of the $114.2 billion U.S. beer market. Although ancient Babylonians took the seriousness of brewing to a whole new level. If a bad batch was made the brewer was drowned in it. Yikes.
