Given that the kids have their Advent calendar, it was only fair to build an adult Advent calendar. Whereas the term “adult” may imply some sort of fetish, I can assure that the only fetish here is craft beer.
Since my husband and I love craft beer, I concocted a plan to stock our wine cooler with twenty-five different craft beer seasonal winter lagers. I began this Christmas craft beer tradition a couple of years ago and we found it to be a fun, flavorful way to celebrate the season.
As we countdown the days to Christmas, we crack open and sample one seasonal craft beer. Unlike a traditional Advent calendar, I don’t number the bottles because we prefer to make our selections based on our mood.
In no particular, here is this year’s craft beer winter selection. This list offers a nice balance of IPA, ales, porters and stouts and I purchased them all from Total Wine & More.
