About the Beer Advent Box:
We've designed this box to be the ultimate gift giving present. You won't need to keep your receipt for this gift!
It has protective top flaps to protect the Christmas countdown numbers during transport.
The Christmas countdown is also secured in place to keep the beers hidden from prying eyes!
Once received simply remove a number for each day between the 1st through to the 25th of December to discover the awesome beer underneath.
How to Enjoy Your Beers Each Day
Each beer is secretly hidden behind a little cardboard window that you tear open each day. In the morning simply pop open the little cardboard window for that day and place the beer in the fridge. It'll be perfectly chilled to enjoy later that day.
Alternatively, if you have a spare or large enough fridge, the box has been designed so that it can be placed on its side without the bottles falling out (remove the four top box flaps before placing in fridge). Then when you are ready to enjoy a beer, simply pop open that days little cardboard window to reveal a new beer.

WHAT OTHER CUSTOMERS ARE SAYING
Fantastic gift for any beer lover
Bought this for my husband for Christmas and he loved it. Wished I had got one for myself too!
Awesome variety of style and origin and the box was really fun.
Only thing I would mention is that there are some 'eclectic' style brews that your average "I love beer but I only drink Superdry" person might not appreciate.
Best idea since sliced bread.
Great range of beers from both abroad and around Australia. Loved the weird ones that you possibly do not try as not in your style.
Great variety of different craft beers, both cans and bottles. Good to try some craft beers from overseas, not just Australia
Poor delivery from AustPost
The product itself was interesting and the collection of beers unique and well sourced. Unfortunately we had an issue with our local AustPost delivery driver, who left the beer in the midday sun outside our home. When I contacted Beer Cartel for assistance I was told to give the beer a go. We did, and the majority of them were ok, but we had quite a number of them go very gassy and frothy upon opening. (As we hadn't tasted most of these beers before we weren't sure if the heat that hit the carton was affecting the taste or not). I probably wouldn't order this again unless AustPost can start hiring literate staff.
The gift that keeps on giving
I gave this gift to my husband and he really enjoyed the beers. I think out of the whole 25 there was one beer he didn't enjoy - too sweet - which he gave to me. He said "This is a great gift and really appreciated - but it was really my wife's way of only getting me to drink one beer a day".
He recommended the Advent calender to a few of his mates and has reviewed many of the beers and passed on recommendations to others.
Great Gift - but may need more specific next time.
My hubby really enjoyed this gift. Box is very cool. But I probably would only do again next year unless I was able to specifiy the style of beers? He does not like stouts and darker beers and prefers lagers/pale Ales, so this might be a good idea to offer 3 offerings: mixed, darks and lights? Just a thought!
Loved it, but next year more small craft breweries please!
I really enjoyed the range of beers offered in the 2017 calendar, but would have preferred more smaller craft beers. While the beers from the big German and Belgian breweries were historic, they have enough exposure behind them. Even the American craft beers (while excellent) must have enough commercial success to be exported to Australia.
Perhaps a range of calendars, an Aussie Craft Beer Calendar (of not so well known breweries), a 'Beers of the World' Calendar, or even ones by type eg a Porter or an Amber Ale Calendar?
Great gift - husband very happy
I got thjs as a gift for my husband; he loved it.
Novelty to open each day, and he enjoyed trying beers before having to buy a larger quantity.
Excellent Christmas gift!
Great product...... a really interesting selection of beers for the festive season
Advent Calendar Overview
First, congratulations on your award for Best On-line Retailer.
I thought the balance of OZ and overseas brews was very good and there was plenty of variety of styles, However, I would have liked some more pilseners, especially from Central Europe. Overall, there were too many heavy alcohol beers (6% and over) for my liking (I am 76). I question the need for heavy alcohol often leaving a very bitter aftertaste: earlier this year I tasted a very good IPA from Badlands at Orange and only 5.2% - beautiful flavour and balance.
I scored the beers out of 10 daily: 4 9s Black Brewery, Young Henry, 4 Pines and Bridge Road: 2 3s (Tuatura not my idea of a pilsener and Nomad too sweet and anaemic; the rest from 6 to 8.5 % (11 7.5% and up).
Of course I appreciate that we all have variations in taste and I'll certainly be lining up for the 2018 Advent calendar.
