While searching about what makes August 4th so special I came across two Holidays that are celebrated on this day. They are; International Beer Day and National Chocolate Chip Cookie Day. I will be filling you in on both of these interesting Holidays today. First we will discuss International Beer Day.
“International Beer Day was created in 2007 by Jesse Avshalomov, Evan Hamilton, Aaron Araki, and Richard Hernandez, in San Francisco, United States as a way to bring friends and strangers together over pints of beer. Between 2007 and 2012, the holiday was celebrated on August 5, but due to popular demand that the day be held on a Friday, the organizers changed the date to the first Friday of August” August was chosen for its summer weather and distance from other beer celebrations. It is Celebrated in over 200 cities globally” (International beer day) international beer day
Who invented Beer? If you’re searching for an original brewmaster to toast the next time you knock back a cold one, you might be out of luck. It’s difficult to attribute the invention of beer to a particular culture or time period, but the world’s first fermented beverages most likely emerged alongside the development of cereal agriculture some 12,000 years ago. who invented beer
For most Beer Enthusiasts, the hardest part about the Beer drinking act is, what kind of beer to buy. Before you decide on a brand of beer, you first have to decide whether to consume a Lager or an Ale beer. This article written by International beer day might help you in deciding which one is a better fit for you.
Lager vs. Ale “The majority of beers on the market today are either ales or lagers. Lagers tend to have a smoother and mellow flavor while Ales are more full-bodied and slightly bitter. This is all due to the yeast and fermentation process. Lagers, German for “to store”, are fermented for longer at lower temperatures. Due to this time consuming process a lot of small breweries can’t afford the time it takes for fermentation and leave it to the big boys. Ales are fermented at higher temperatures for a shorter period of time and contain hops, which add the bitter flavor. If you meet a time traveler from the Middle Ages, this is their beverage of choice. The variations of Ales and Lagers are innumerable and taking the uninitiated on a journey of beer discovery will guarantee the admiration of your peers and the possibility of parole”.

National Chocolate Chip Cookie Day
Creator of the Chocolate Chip Cookie Ruth Graves Wakefield invented the Toll House brand of chocolate chip cookies. It’s difficult to imagine that the chocolate chip cookie, one of the world’s most beloved sweet treats, was actually invented by accident. But it is true. Here is how it happened. The creation of chocolate chip cookies was a complete accident. Ruth Wakefield was all out of baker’s chocolate, so she used a semisweet chocolate bar instead. It turned out that the chocolate bar Ruth used in her cookie mix had been a gift from Andrew Nestle of the Nestle Chocolate Company. As the Toll House chocolate chip cookie recipe became popular, sales of Nestle’s semi-sweet chocolate bar increased. Ruth sold the chocolate chip cookie recipe to Andrew Nestle, who then provided her with a lifetime supply of Nestle chocolate.
