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!

REVIEW: Calgary Brewery Tours
Back in January I was invited to tag along on a media/blogger tour of the new brewery tour service launching in Calgary, and hell yes I went! The Mrs and I have been involved/supporting the local beer community on twitter for a while, so it was both awesome exciting and an honour to check this out. Thank you CBT!!
Why Anyone Can Have a Beer Cellar: And How to Build One
If we beer nerds lived in a perfect world, we’d all have entire climate-controlled rooms—or at least refrigerators—dedicated to beer storage. Sigh. But we live in the real world where refrigerators are stuffed with condiments galore and a constant in-and-out stream of leftovers, and where fitting even a small laundry room into our homes is a stretch. This doesn’t mean, however, that each and every one of us brew lovers can’t have our own beer cellar.
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.
