It's a well known fact that beer tastes better when someone else buys it for you, so it's a tradition on International Beer Day to buy beer for your friends! When you present the beer, don't forget to say the traditional words of beer-giving:

"I bring you the gift of beer."

By giving the gift of beer to your friends and receiving the gift of beer in return, everyone's beer becomes much more delicious.
