December 10th may not be the only day we enjoy this blonde, light and crisp adult drink, but it sure is the only day we celebrate National Lager Day on December 10th.
The drink of choice for many at sporting events, backyard barbecues, baby showers. and funerals, lager is the light hop drink that is popular around the world. No one really knows how this holiday came about, but one thing is for sure: America loves this beer.
NATIONAL LAGER DAY ACTIVITIES

Create an event page on Facebook and have your friends form teams (of 6) for your own Beer Olympics! Popular games in the series include: beer pong (obvi), flip cup, and other bro-tastic drinking games. One rule: only lagers.

Have an international beer party
Beer is consumed all over the world, which means there are a variety of beers that you probably haven’t tried yet. Invite your friends and ask them to bring a lager of a beer from a specific country. Your taste buds will thank you.
WHY WE LOVE NATIONAL LAGER DAY
It’s light and it won’t swell you (so much)
Beer is a very hoppy and heavy alcoholic beverage. Many people consume a limited amount due to its bloating effect. However, many more people prefer lager (which is a lighter beer) to avoid that bloated feeling.
On hot summer days or cold winter nights, most people enjoy a nice cold drink all year round. The light, crisp taste of a lager pairs well with many foods and is a refreshing choice after a run on the tracks or in the field.
People are more likely to approach you in a bar
According to a recent study, people believe that a woman drinking a beer makes them appear “friendly” and “low maintenance”, and a man with a cold drink in hand appears “authentic” and “genuine.”
