NOTHING gets us into the festive mood better than an advent calendar – and we're loving all of the tipples you can now enjoy in the countdown to Christmas.
The best beer advent calendars are the ideal gift for beer lovers – and a great way to introduce them to new brews.
All of your favourite go-to craft beer sites, from Brewdog to Beer Hawk, are in on the fun, with a new beer advent calendar launching each festive season.
Typically, these beer advent calendars contain 24 unusual, exciting and even award-winning beers.
Often, these beers are brewed exclusively for the calendars, and are available only in limited editions. The challenge will be sticking to only one beer a night in the lead-up to Christmas day…
Some beer-themed advent calendars include snacks, too – as well as access to exclusive events and tastings for beer lovers.
Bitter, stout, IPA, pale ale… we want it all. And these beer advent calendars below have the best beers to try this Christmas.
