It’s back! All good things come to those who wait, they say, and we’ve got 24 good things coming soon to reward your patience. The Craft Beer Advent Calendar has returned. If you don’t know what that is, read on.
With a traditional advent calendar, you open up a little door every day from December 1st through December 24th. It’s like a countdown to Christmas. There are usually chocolates, or treats, or toys hidden behind each door. In our Advent calendar, however, we put an awesome craft beer behind each door. You can drink ’em however you want. Open the door in the morning before work, stick the beer in the fridge, and have it when you get home. Save them all up and take them to the family Christmas (or other holiday of your choosing) dinner. Give them away to your neighbors (we don’t espouse this method, but it’s very commendable and holiday-spirit-y of you!). Your choice. We do all the hard work, gathering 24 amazing beers, and you get to sit back and enjoy the results.
There is a catch, though.
We won’t tell you what the beers are. That’s part of the fun, every day is a surprise! What we will do, however, so you trust that we won’t steer you wrong, is show you what we put in 2017’s calendar. You can see that it’s a good mix of styles, seasonals, and flavors, but all of the beers are highly rated, very well respected, and delicious. Any true beer lover will love every beer in the case.
**** DANGER, DANGER! ****
