International Beer Day (August 7, 2020) is a celebration on the first Friday of every August. It was founded in 2007 in Santa Cruz, California, by Jesse Avshalomov and has grown in popularity since.

To mark the event, we’ve rounded up a selection of the best beer gift sets, cases and hampers to crack open and share with family and friends this summer, whether it’s a birthday celebration, a get-together or a barbecue.

Amazon shoppers are currently snapping up cases of Sharp’s Doom Bar Zero for just £6.88 – that’s a saving of £6.62 on the normal price. The case includes eight 500ml bottles of the Alcohol Free Amber Ale.

Doom Bar Zero is described as a perfectly balanced beer combining subtle yet complex flavours. It boasts an aroma of spicy resinous hop and sweet roasted malts, and a taste of succulent dried fruit and lightly roasted malt.

One Amazon shopper described Doom Bar Zero as the ‘best alcohol free beer around at the moment’.
