National Independent Beer Run Day
The Brewers Association is naming July 3 National Independent Beer Run Day.

Before you get to the Independence Day fireworks and cookouts, you have to stock up on your favorite beers, right? That’s exactly why the Brewers Association is deeming July 3 “National Independent Beer Run Day.”

July 4 is Independence Day, and since craft breweries are all about independence, the BA, the not-for-profit membership group for craft brewers and publishers of CraftBeer.com is sending a message to all beer lovers.

“Think independent and drink independent,” says Julia Herz, craft beer program director, Brewers Association. “Craft beer serves as the anchor for so many Independence Day celebrations. Our libations and the liberation we’re celebrating should go hand in hand.“

It’s a simple notion. As you celebrate the holiday devoted to independence, buy beer from independently-owned breweries on your beer run.
