The Banners and Logos below are Trademarks of International Beer Day. They are provided here for the convenience of Bloggers/Press and Participating Events - that is to say:

2) (or) An officially participating IBD event (meaning your event has been submitted).
So feel free to use the logos if you're talking about IBD, but please don't use them to indicate official affiliation with Beer Day if you're not actually working with us. Just be cool, ya know?
