Friday evenings are traditionally a​ time​ when in alcohol-friendly cultures people get together with their workmates for a beer or two (well, maybe more than that…). For that reason, it’s also a good ​moment​ to promote responsible drinking. United around that common goal, globally famous brewers Anheuser-Busch InBev, Carlsberg and Heineken have joined hands with a range of stakeholders to promote responsible drinking to help advance the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals to prevent alcohol-related harm.

Launched last year, for this second edition of Global Beer Responsibility Day on Friday 16th September the brewers will tap (pun intended) the manpower of more than half a million employees in 76 countries across the world, engaging more than half a million retailers, 200 government partners and NGOs. It features a variety of educational programs including server and seller training, ID-checking programs and consumer education efforts, to name but a few.
