Britons are raising a glass to celebrate the Magna Carta (Source: Getty)
On 15 June 1215, King John finally agreed to sign the Magna Carta – a deal that meant monarchs were finally subject to the law, just like everyone else.
But not only that. It also gave birth to the humble pint, thanks to the inclusion of an article that demanded "a single measure for ale".
To celebrate 800 years since the sealing of this document and the beginning of democracy (and pints) as we know it, pubs across London are putting on special offers and toasting under the hashtag #CheersBDB.

Draft House

Based on Seething Lane, a stone's throw from Tower Hill, Draft House is selling its cask ales at £2.75 a pint all day.

The King & Co.

This small but classic Clapham pub is selling all cask ales at £3.20 a pint.

Sanctum Soho Hotel

Today, the Sanctum Soho hotel is offering two beers for £8 all day. The closest tube is Piccadilly Circus.

Fuller's Brewery

This London brewer took punters on riverside tours to celebrate the day.

The Spencer

This pub overlooking Putney Common has released its new bottled beers today.

Tesco launches three new ales

If you'd rather mark the occasion from the comfort of your sofa, Tesco has launched three new ales across its UK stores, identifiable by their Beer Day Britain logos. Each has been created to show off the "diversity of taste to be found in British beer".

They additions are India Pale Ale, Ruby Ale and Golden Ale. Each costs £1.29 for a 500ml bottle.
