International Beer Day + Friday = Small Biz Love

It’s happened, folks! The fates of fortune have collided to bring us International Beer Day on a Friday. Friday, the king of the work week!

We suggest you celebrate by rounding up a couple of coworkers or friends and heading to your favourite local pub, bistro, restaurant or even a local brewery! If you’re looking for suggestions on places to go, visit the Shop Small Biz directory and search BEER. A few dozen establishments popped up in my area.

While you’re celebrating, when you’re sharing those selfies, don’t forget to show your small biz love by mentioning by name where you are!

We’ve also created some fun imagery for you, which you are totally allowed to steal and share.
