2018 Beer Advent Calendars

Posted on

They’re back for 2018 and better than ever!

We’ve taken the worlds most highly rated Beer Advent Calendar and taken up a notch, again!

We can’t wait to reveal and share these beers with you on the countdown to Christmas but before we do we wanted to share a bit about this year’s Advent Calendar boxes. That’s right we’ve created two!

We have our ever popular beer advent calendar which we affectionately refer to as the “All Rounder Discovery Box” as well as a new release for 2018 called the “Expert” Beer Advent Calendar. 

That's right, we've got two awesome Beer Advent Calendars to choose from this year.

Here’s a little bit of information on each.

All Rounder Discovery Beer Advent Calendar

This is perfect for the craft beer newbie right through to the beer aficionado and features:

- 100% Australian beers. We’ve sourced locally brewed and owned beers. You’ll be supporting 25 Australian businesses each and every day during the count down.

- All beers have been brewed specially for our Advent Calendars meaning they are as fresh as possible.

- 100% independent. There is no big or faux craft beer in this pack! We’re independent and wanted to support only other independent breweries with our Beer Advent Calendar box.

- 7 one-off exclusive beers collaborated on by us with awesome Australian craft breweries. These are limited releases never to be brewed again. Only available in this year’s beer advent calendar. Once they’re gone they’re gooone!

- Like previous years we are featuring a brand new line up of craft beers from amazing breweries. A truly unique taste sensation and the reason we call it a "Discovery" box. 

- 25 different unique beers from 25 different breweries, we don’t double up from one brewery.

- Over 20 different beer styles! This isn’t your run of the mill pale ale and lager advent calendar. We’ve hand selected (and brewed) beers that ensure you get variety with an experience second to none. Get your taste buds ready!

- Our awesome festive design advent calendar box, get you (or the lucky recipient) right in the mood for Christmas. Designed to hide away each beer and make it fun to reveal each one day by day. It even includes a built in gift tag - you won’t even need a card!

And in case the All Rounder Discovery version wasn't enough to get you salivating and you want a bigger crazier selection of tastebud testing and boundary pushing beers we’ve put together the Expert Beer Advent Calendar!

Mid Strength Craft Beer

“Mid strength beer”; these are three dirty words in Australian society, considered by most the beer to have when you are at an over-Policed sports game, or wanting a thirst quenching beverage mindful of the need to drive. It is thought to be typically flavourless droll (particularly at the over-Policed sports game!) For a lot of [...]
