Hashtag Holiday: Sunday is #NationalBeerDay

Who doesn’t love a good excuse to crack open a cold beer after a long day at work? With Sunday’s unconventional holiday, #NationalBeerDay, consider it doing your part to celebrate what is one of the world’s oldest beverages. (Some say beer dates back to 9500 BC, to ancient Iraq and ancient Egypt.) When we informally polled the GMA Strahan & Sara set and the SMAC offices, it became clear that everyone had their favorite ales, lagers, and stouts. But the Mexican beer Modelo came up again and again. Our friend Tony is a huge fan of Modelo, but he loves what the brand stands for, too: The idea that it doesn’t matter where you come from, it only matters what you’re made of. That’s definitely a sentiment we will happily raise our pint glasses to—maybe filled with our latest beer obsession, the like-summer-in-a-bottle Modelo Chelada Limon y Sal. Salud!
