25 Drunken Days of December
Every December, I go and buy the Craft Beer Advent Calendar, and every year I spend December putting up a review each day right up to Christmas day and sometimes beyond.
This year was no different, I got the Old World Countries, New World Beers Calendar, and this year, it was a great one to pick up! Not only was it challenging to me, but after previous years of facing complaint after complaint they may have actually almost perfected it!
A big congrats goes out to the Craft Beer Importers to listen to their clients and try to make this year’s calendar almost perfect! I myself have gotten this calendar for four years in a row now and was amazed by it. I am looking forward to getting it next year too!
For anyone who missed it, here are my reviews of ALL the beers, plus a little Christmas treat where I do a side by side of the 2015 and 2016’s Winter Dunkel by Whistler Brewing.
Below is the playlist of all my videos for the 2016’s 24 Drunken Days of December!
Cheers and Stay Frosty my friends!

The Irish Stout You Don’t know but Should
We love Guinness. We obsess over Guinness—how to pour it, how to drink it, how to stop from drooling as we stare at those cascading nitro ripples like they’re some kind of 4.2% ABV Magic Eye. And yes, on St. Patrick’s Day, we bless ourselves with Guinness like it’s holy water at church. We suck it back like a magic potion to cure ourselves of all non-Irishness, and possibly also all sobriety.
The Search For The World’s Cheapest Beer
On Saint Patrick’s Day 2016, thousands of revellers donned their finest green top hats, headed to the pub and downed a few pints in memory of Ireland’s patron saint.
The 25 Most Important American Craft Beers Ever Brewed
With more than 5,000 breweries, some of which produce dozens of different beers every year, America is home to the largest and most diverse beer culture in the world. But as exciting new beers appear weekly in bars and on specialty shop shelves, we shouldn’t forget their forebears: the brews that spawned, defined and advanced the craft beer movement, made by the influential brewers who brought our country from a low of less than 100 breweries in 1978 to where we are today.
How Some Breweries Survived Prohibition
Playing on their non-alcoholic strengths was the key to surviving the Prohibition for many breweries.
