We are Proud of British Beer & Pubs

Dear Mr Cameron

The signatories of this petition are very proud of British beer and pubs. We urge the British government to do the following:

  • Recognise the importance of Britain's national drink (beer) and showcase it at official government functions by offering it to guests at drinks receptions, and serving it during state dinners and other receptions as a superb match for food.
  • Trade delegations to highlight British beer when they are overseas. Other countries celebrate their national drinks - France with wine, Scotland with whisky.
  • Recognise British beer and pubs as a unique and priceless asset to the tourism industry. Visit Britain to make more of British beer and pubs when they market Britain overseas. Belgium, the Czech Republic, and Germany entice hundreds of thousands of visitors each year specifically because of the beer. Let's do the same for Britain. 
  • Recognise the significant value of beer to the domestic and export economy and take British beer and pubs seriously as a major element of Britain plc.

Britain is one of the leading brewing nations in the world and we have no reason to be shy of proclaiming something that British brewers excel at.  Let's hear it for beer!

  • Liam Barnes This is a great idea! It makes far more sense to celebrate beer at major official functions showcasing British food and culture than wine, and if it helps to encourage tourism and give international recognition to local brewers then it's a truly perfect pint.

  • Patrick de Soissons Beer is delicious and nutritious!
