Artists like Noizu, Tom & Collins, Havoc & Lawn, and more have shared their favorite go-to beers to sip on during International Beer Day!


Founded back in 2007 by Jesse Avshalomov, International Beer Day is celebrated on the first Friday of August annually as a way to unite those who love the suds around the world. While it began as a localized event in Santa Cruz, the common nature of the drink on a global scale allowed for it to blossom into a day that’s recognized by countries around the world.

As one of the world’s most beloved beverages, it’s often a go-to in the dance music scene by artists and listeners alike with a wide assortment of styles and breweries to choose from. This year, in celebration of International Beer Day, we reached out to some of our favorite artists in the scene like Halflight, Noizu, and Tom & Collins to get to know what they’re drinking. So read on for their takes and let us know which brew you’ll be sipping on today in the comments!


Halflight

I think my go to beer would have to be an ice cold Corona with a wedge of lime on a hot day whilst listening to Collie Buddz. That’s when I know Summer has officially started for me. Unfortunately I wouldn’t be able to tell you exactly where, or when I first tried Corona, but it was most likely in some dark recess of one of Swindon’s finest establishments whilst screw-facing to the latest Noisia release.

Halflight

Check out Halfight’s “Out Of Love” if you’re looking for a energetic DnB tune that will have you energized in no time at all.


Noizu

My favorite beer is Asahi Super Dry! It’s light, refreshing and from my fave place in the world, Japan.

NOIZU

Noizu has been bring the heat this summer with a number of fantastic releases like “Summer 91” that will have house music lovers grooving away in no time at all.


Allen Wish

My favorite beer is a Heineken. I first had it at Ultra Music Festival, but I can’t remember which one.  I like it because I can find it at almost every festival,  so it’s a yes in all countries. I love it’s taste and how refreshing it is.

Allen Wish

Allen Wish recently delivered a fantastic tech house tune that will definitely take you “Higher” this summer as you groove away in your rave cave.


Tom & Collins

It’s got to be Peroni! Best served ice cold.  It’s our favorite because it’s very refreshing without losing its flavor. The first time we had it was in Ibiza 🙂

Tom & Collins

Looking for some beats from this dynamic duo? Listen to “Corosito” to get the vibe right and stay tuned for our upcoming interview with them as they discuss their new label Terms & Conditions!


Havoc & Lawn

We aren’t huge drinkers, but we do love a Heineken at a festival. We enjoyed our first pint at the very first Nameless Music Festival, which is set in the mountains of Northern Italy. We were gutted to miss out on it this year. It’s amazing and we loved the vibe in nature.

Havoc & Lawn

Piero Puripa

My favorite beer is Bud Light. I’m not a big fan of beers, but I do like to drink the lighter ones. I had my first Bud Light in Miami many years ago at WMC.

Piero Puripa

Piero Puripa has dropped some tunes that are absolute jams already this year like “Haus Style” and “Braindead,” and has also put his spin on Boss Doms’ tune with Kyle Pearce, “I Want More.” Give it a listen and let us know what you think!
