It's International Beer Day - or, as some people might put it, the best day of the year. Burton is hailed as the capital of brewing, and some of the best beers in the world have been born in the town.

If you needed a reason to head down to your local to get yourself a nice cold pint, we've compiled a list of the some Burton beers, lagers and ales, and where you can get yourself a pint of them.

Pedigree

Marston's Pedigree has been a popular choice for many in Burton for more than 60 years

The most famous of all the Burton brews just has to be Pedigree. The beer was originally called P, before being rebranded to Pedigree by staff when head brewer George Peard was in charge. It's him you can see on the new look bottle. The beer is available in many pubs across the area. Further afield, it can still be found in Marston's pubs, being the brand's signature ale.

It is available from the Burton Bridge Inn, Devonshire Arms, The Alfred and the Great Northern, in Burton; The Plough, in Stapenhill, and the Brickmakers Arms, in Newton Solney.

Cobra

Cobra was founded in 1989 for people looking for a smoother and less gassy lager, appealing to both ale and lager drinkers. The beer is brewed in the UK and in India, with it's UK home being in Burton. Cobra's combined beers, Cobra Premium, Cobra Zero and King Cobra, have won a total of 94 gold medals at the Monde Selection awards, making them among the most decorated beers in the world. It is sold primarily in curry houses across the area.

Coors Light

Coors Light is yet another popular beer brewed in Burton

The light beer was first produced in 1978 by Coors Brewing Company, before it merged and became Molson Coors. The beer is lowered to 3.8 degrees celsuis to make it extra cold, giving it the sharp taste that many people know it for. It's available in all Wetherspoon pubs, so head down to the Lord Burton, in High Street, Burton, or the Sir Nigel Gresley, on The Delph, in Swadlincote, to get your hands on a pint!
