National Beer Day is April 7th of every year.
In short, it’s a day to celebrate the end of Prohibition and the re-legalization of alcohol in the U.S.
Here are a few ways to celebrate National Beer Day whether you go out on April 7th or raise a glass at home.
National Beer Day Restaurant Deals
These restaurants offer specific National Beer Day deals — only available on April 7.
Buffalo Wild Wings
One thing you must do if you eat at BWWs is sign up for Blazin’ Rewards.
Definitely do this before April 7th, because Blazin’ Rewards members get an extra 100 points with a beer purchase.
Chevy’s Fresh Mex
On April 7th, you can get $2.50 domestic and $3.50 imported beers at Chevy’s Fresh Mex.
On National Beer Day at Bahama Breeze, you can usually get an Ultimate Coronarita — a margarita/beer concoction — for $11.99.
Might be worth the splurge.
Killer Happy Hour Deals
Here’s where you can find a solid happy hour deal any day of the week:
You can get $2.00 domestic beer at Red Robin daily from 3-6 p.m. and again from 8-10 p.m.
Get a $2.50 beer any day of the week at Texas Roadhouse between 4-6 p.m.
You just need to make a food purchase to get the beer deal.
Visit TGI Fridays Monday-Friday from 5-7 p.m. or weekends from 9-11 p.m., and you can get $2.00 beers.
Monday through Saturday from 3-6 p.m. and all day Sunday at Chili’s, look for $1.00 off your beer purchase.
Best Ways to Save on Beer
Staying home with your brew? If so, you must know how to save the most money possible.
Stock up on beer with Ibotta offers and save up to $7.00 on an 18-pack.
Ibotta always has a few beer offers available, but look for the offers that hold the best value.
For example, right now there’s an offer for $15.00 cash back when you buy three 12-packs of Bud Light.
That’s $5.00 back per 12-pack!
Build your own six-pack and save 10% at World Market.
Shop World Market if you like international beer, because you can mix and match beer types and brands to create your own six-pack.
You’ll score an extra 10% off when you do this.
Invest in a growler at your local gas station or Kroger store.
You’ll spend a bit extra up front to purchase the growler itself, but then you’ll reuse it every time you want more beer.
The draw here is that you can get local craft beers for up to 75% less when you buy it in a growler compared to buying it bottled or in a can.
Plus, it’s tap beer, so it just tastes better.
Buy Trader Joe’s brand beer instead of brand-name craft beer.
Instead of spending close to $9.00 per six-pack of a craft beer like Fat Tire, why not spend more like $5.00-$8.00 on a six-pack of Trader Joe’s craft beers?
Trader Joe’s beers — especially the Simpler Times Lager — get great reviews with most people saying they can’t tell the difference between TJ’s and brand-name beers.
Shop Costco for domestic beers.
This is a no-brainer because you’ll save up to $4.00 per 24-pack of a beer like Coors Light at Costco compared to buying it at the grocery store.
What can I do with leftover beer?
With all those stock-up deals on beer, you’re bound to have a few leftovers. Here’s how to handle it (besides drinking the leftovers).
Wash your hair with beer.
Put a cup of beer into a small saucepan, and boil it down to 1/4 cup. Let it cool and then apply it to your hair for lots of shine without drying it out.
Put beer to work catching fruit flies.
Fill a shallow bowl or jar with beer, cover it with cling wrap and create a small hole for fruit flies to get in (they won’t be able to get out).
Take a bath in beer.
Mix beer with an olive oil based soap for soft skin.
Get rid of brown spots in your lawn.
Fermented sugar in beer is good for lawn growth, and the acid kills off anything you don’t want growing in your lawn.
