Drink Up! It’s International Beer Day!
August 5th is ‘International Beer Day’, and we’ve got a weekend full of classes for you and your friends (or your date) to come in and enjoy! Have a nice cold beer (or ‘liquid courage’ as we call it around the studio), and paint your heart out!
While we are known as a Paint & Wine Studio, we have always offered a variety of beer for our non-wine drinkers because we enjoy a cold brew as much as the next person.
International Beer Day is a celebration on the first Friday of every August founded in 2007 in Santa Cruz, California. Since its inception, International Beer Day has grown from a small localized event in the western United States into a worldwide celebration spanning 207 cities, 80 countries and 6 continents. Specifically, International Beer Day has three declared purposes:
1- To gather with friends and enjoy the taste of beer.
2- To celebrate those responsible for brewing and serving beer.
3- To unite the world under the banner of beer, by celebrating the beers of all nations together on a single day.
From 2007 through 2012, International Beer Day was celebrated on August 5. After International Beer Day 2012, the founders took a poll of fans and chose to move the holiday to the first Friday in August… And being that THIS YEAR, the 5th IS the first Friday of the month… well, that’s extra special :)
So grab a can or glass, cheers your friends, and drink up!

August 5th ‘Japanese Rising Sun’
Did you know that Mt. Fuji is actually a Stratovolcano! Not only is it one volcano – it’s three! The mount is three separate volcanoes placed on top of one another. The bottom layer is the Komitake volcano, then the Kofuji volcano, then Fuji, which is the youngest. Mt Fuji is indeed still active. Although, the last time it erupted was in 1707, over 300 years ago!
