My BC Beer Advent Calendar

with 2 comments

I saw a tweet this evening asking about beer advent calendars.  Some of the local liquor stores actually had these a few weeks ago…  but they looked kinda lame, at least to me.  But if I were to roll my own, what would I put in it?  I’ve tried to limit the list to beers that I assume to be generally available.  There are a few beers that I’d list, but they’re only available on-tap: Crannog Backhand of God, Red Truck Brown Porter, Storm Black Plague Stout, etc.

Nonetheless, here we go:

  1. Driftwood Fat Tug IPA
  2. Lighthouse Switchback IPA
  3. Red Racer IPA
  4. Swans Extra IPA
  5. Philips Amnesiac Double IPA
  6. Mt Begbie Nasty Habit IPA
  7. Red Racer ESB
  8. R&B East Side Bitter
  9. Howe Sound Baldwin & Cooper Best Bitter
  10. Moon Under Water Blue Moon Bitter
  11. Swans Appleton Brown Ale
  12. Howe Sound Rail Ale Nut Brown
  13. Lighthouse Keepers Stout
  14. Red Racer Oatmeal Stout
  15. Howe Sound Diamond Head Oatmeal Stout
  16. Swans Oatmeal Stout
  17. Parallel 49 Ugly Sweater Milk Stout
  18. Howe Sound Pothole Filler Imperial Stout
  19. Driftwood Singularity Russian Imperial Stout
  20. Phillips Longboat Chocolate Porter
  21. Townsite Pow Town Porter
  22. Driftwood Blackstone Porter
  23. Parallel 49 Salty Scot
  24. Parallel 49 Black Christmas

I might need to do some tweaking of the specific ordering…  but I think this might my goal for December!  Acquire all of the above and drink them like an advent calendar.  It’s like being a kid again.  But with beer.
