25 Drunken Days of December – Craft Beer Advent Calendar Review:
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.
2016 was no different, I got the Old World Countries, New World Beers Advent 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!
The 2016 Craft Beer Advent Calendar Was One Of The Best Yet:
A big congrats goes out to Craft Beer Importers for listening to their clients and trying to make this year’s calendar almost perfect! I have purchased this calendar for four years in a row now and was amazed by it. I am looking forward to getting it next year too!
