It seems these days that we're inundated with so many choices of advent calendar in the run up to Christmas. Gone are the days of the 99p chocolate advent calendar, now you can spend anything up to £1,000 on a rare malt whisky advent calendar. Seriously, it's true - click here to see for yourself. It's enough to make my eyes water!
So after trying Beer Hawk's advent calendar last year and felt it a little too pale ale for my liking, I was going to make my own this year. Then I spotted a beer advent calendar in Morrisons reduced to £15 from £30 - well I could hardly say no.
I know the quality of beer will not be as good as the Beer Hawk one but it was 80% cheaper and it has beer in it - what's not to like?
So it says on the box that it's filled with a mixture of 330ml and 275ml beers and there's a list of the beers on the back for anyone who can't wait to find out what's in the calendar. There's also a picture on the side of what you can expect to find inside from well known names such as Wells, Youngs and Wychwood.
So join me as I open my advent calendar and find out what's behind each door. I bought it on day 12 so I have a bit of catching up to do but I'll share my surprises past, present and future with you!
It even comes with a free glass behind the 'Open Me First' door. It's nothing exciting, just a 330ml tumbler style glass but I like the extra thought of including a handy receptacle from which we can drink our exciting beers.
