NATIONAL REFRESHMENT DAY – Fourth Thursday in July

National Refreshment Day Fourth Thursday in July


National Refreshment Day is observed annually on the fourth Thursday in July.  This day is all about celebrating fun and refreshment during the hottest time of the year.  There’s nothing better on a hot summer day than those moments of pure refreshment, especially enjoying a nice, cold beer.  These are the simple pleasures that we all love and cherish.


Turn the fan on high, grab your bathing suit and ice down the beer.  Make the most of the dog days and raise a glass to National Refreshment!  Use #NationalRefreshmentDay on social media.  Join Traveler Beer Company at one of the many National Refreshment Day events happening all over the country.

National Refreshment Day was submitted by Traveler Beer Company in May 2015. The Traveler Beer Company is a craft beer venture based in Burlington, Vermont, with the mission of combining the European shandy tradition with American ingenuity to create THE American Craft Shandy. Traveler Beer Company brews two year-round styles: Curious Traveler Shandy, an American craft wheat ale made with real lemon and a touch of lime and Illusive Traveler Shandy, an American craft wheat ale made with real grapefruit. In addition to the year-round styles, Traveler brews several seasonals: Forbidden Traveler Apple Ale, Jack-O Traveler Pumpkin Shandy, and Jolly Traveler Winter Shandy and others. Traveler beers are available in bottle and on draft throughout all 50 states.

The Registrar at National Day Calendar declared National Refreshment Day to be observed annually on the fourth Thursday in July.

There are over 1,500 national days. Don’t miss a single one. Celebrate Every Day with National Day Calendar!
