This craft beer advent calendar just made the Christmas countdown tolerable


It's not that we hate Christmas.

We're just not big fans of the misery of shit weather, subpar Christmas lights, insufferable crowds and having to use up the last of your holiday days staying at home with at least one family member who drives you slowly but surely insane. 

Plus the fact that we haven't even made it to Halloween yet and we're already having to deal with the happiest time of the year. 

But there may be solace in one of the best (and heaviest) advent calendars of the year.

This craft beer calendar surprises you with a different beer from around the world each day, including Flying Dog’s American IPA, Raging Bitch, Anchor, and Brooklyn Brewery’s luxuriously dark Black Chocolate Stout.

Because you need to get chocolate in there somewhere, right?


We wouldn't recommend cracking one open first thing in the morning, but it would be a welcome end to the day.

Available from CraftBeerAdventCalendar.co.uk for the wallet-jingling sum of £74.99, you can order it now (which is too soon).

Essentially, Christmas comes early every single day until the 25th.
