Imagine what would happen to our lives if beverages don’t exist. There will be no juice in our lunch, wine in our fancy dinner, cold beer on a hot summer, coffee with a pastry, or milk with cookies. To put it simply, life without beverages would be so plain boring. To give appreciation to the many kinds of beverages we have, we celebrate the Beverage Day every 6th of May of each year. If you want to know more about this special day of celebration, then you should continue reading below.

What is Beverage Day?
This unofficial holiday is always celebrated every year on the 6th of May. It is sometimes called the National Beverage Day. Although not much is exactly known about the origin of this day, we can safely say that this day commemorates having beverages in our lives. Simply having a good beverage after a tiring long day can help you gain back energy and be prepared for what’s to come the next day.
History of Beverage Day
Beverages have existed as far back in time of humans as possible. Perhaps the simplest beverage that people have drank before is water. More advanced than that is perhaps juice from fruits combined with water. But as technology evolved and time advanced, more and more kinds of beverages were created by people.
Nowadays, we have so many kinds of beverages. Some of these include alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages. We also have caffeinated beverages, rice drinks, maize beverages, barley beverages, beers, fruit juices, soft drinks, lemonades, and more.
The first ever record of beer was in Egypt. However, the first ever beer made here was very weak that even children drank it. Other researchers point out that earlier records of beer have been traced back to the Neolithic period.
In terms of coffee, the first ever one recorded as we know today was made by Omar, a Yemeni from the 16th century. Now, we have different kinds of coffee. We either enjoy drinking instant coffee from sachet, making our own using the coffee maker machine, or ordering one in a cafe.
Soft drinks have been popular as well. Perhaps the most well-known one is Coca-Cola. Though it was created relatively only recently – in the late 19th century. Most of us love drinking this kind of soft drink now. But we moderate our consumption of this delicious drink because it contains lots of sugar.
