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!

Welcome to the Darkside We Have Beer!
My love for dark beers leads the passion in this article. I put out a call for the best porters, stouts and black ales on twitter and my followers delivered. I found some new loves and old favorites in these brews. Some coffee porters strong enough to wake you up midday and a chocolate stout that tasted like a malted ice cream.
