Hey everyone! Thanks for purchasing this year’s Craft Beer Advent Calendar. We’re really excited about this year’s calendar!

Check back here every day and we’ll post some info about that day’s beer! Of course, we won’t spoil any surprises. We’ll wait until 8am each day to post that day’s beer. Just in case you get any ideas about peeking early. 😉

Hey, by the way: if you give this as a present to a known gift shaker, we can’t be responsible for the results. Fair warning!
