Our Beer Advent Calendars are really popular, but we know that many people still have some questions about the pack so we thought we’d address the most common questions here.
These frequently asked questions have been split into different sections to assist you in finding the answer you are after more quickly. These sections are:
BEER ADVENT CALENDAR
What is a Beer Advent Calendar?
Advent Calendars are a great way to count down the days to Christmas Day, starting on the 1st December.
Traditionally, they are a piece of card incorporating small numbered flaps, one of which is opened each day to reveal a Christmas themed picture.
We’ve taken this idea and made it that much more fun by filling a box with beer to reveal a new beer each day!
Are all your Beer Advent Calendars the same?
The selection of beers in each Advent Calendar is the same across all boxes, this assists in creating the best value Beer Advent Calendar on the planet!
WHAT’S IN THE BOX
Are there tasting notes for each beer?
Tasting notes will be provided via our social media pages (Facebook, Twitter and Instagram) each day.
How many beers are there?
There are 25 beers in total, one for each day leading to Christmas including one to have on Christmas Day!
What types of beers are included?
The beers in our packs are selected to provide variety, this is not your “pale ale and lager” pack.
The way we see it is you are unlikely to eat spaghetti bolognese for 25 days so we think it’s only logical you have a different beer to enjoy each day.
The 25 beers are from 25 different Australian independent breweries.
In terms of styles, well we’ve included a massive range including Pale Ales, India Pale Ales, Red Ale, Pilsner, Golden Ale, Steam Ale, Stout, Double IPA, XPA, Lager and a few others just to mix it up - your tastebuds can thank us later!
Is the selection of beers different to previous years?
As they say variety is the spice of life, and beer is no different! Each year we select a brand new range of beers ensuring there are no repeats. This means you (or the lucky recipient) get a new beery experience each year.
For 2018 along with 25 completely new beers, seven of these are special one-off brews. We've partnered with seven different breweries to create taste sensations you won't be able to access anywhere else.
Apart from awesome beers, what else comes in the box?
We include a gift card (if you have opted for one with a message at checkout) and a flyer to get you in Christmas count down mode.
How do I know this is awesome value?
If you were to buy each beer individually it would cost you over $150, meaning the price you actually pay is heavily reduced (over 20% discount!). This leaves you with money over for some other awesome Christmas treats… like beer glasses ;-)
Can I buy the Beer Advent Calendar online?
Of course, but hurry as stock is limited and may sell out!
Why should I pre-order my Beer Advent Calendar?
The pre-order secures you a Beer Advent Calendar which is then dispatched at in early November. The pre-order period is open from September to end of October.
If I order more than one Beer Advent Calendar, can I get them delivered to multiple different addresses?

You can of course purchase multiple Advent Calendars sent to the one address within the one order.
Will the Beer Advent Calendar be available for purchase in your Sydney store?

If you have ordered after the pre-order period, then your order will be dispatched as soon as it has been received, on average within 1 business day.
Will I get my Beer Advent box before the 1st of December?
To ensure you are able to receive your order before the 1st of December we recommend ordering as early as possible. This is part of the reason we offer a pre-order period.
We will continue to dispatch orders for as as long as stocks remain, even if ordered after the 1st of December. We’re sure you’ll manage to catch up on the first few days ;-)

BUYING A BEER ADVENT CALENDAR AS A GIFT
Who is this an awesome gift for?
These packs are a great gift idea for anyone who enjoys different beers.
If they are a staunch VB or Tooheys drinker that can’t fathom the thought of drinking anything else then this probably isn’t for them.
If on the other hand they are someone that enjoys trying new things and a little beery surprise each day for 25 days then this is the perfect gift for them.
Can I include a gift card message?
Of course! Simply add a message in the comment box during the online ordering process and we’ll include a gift card with your personalised message, free of charge.
Is gift wrapping available?
While no specific gift wrapping is available the box has an awesome festive design plus a built in gift card box making it pre-wrapped ready for you to give to the lucky recipient.
