The champagne of advent calendars

It’s the holiday season… and part of me has been waiting for a while to give one of these to each of my brewing buddies, the Skotz.  Imagine the sweet coincidence… 24 days in December before Christmas and 24 beers in a case.  It’s almost too perfect.  Without any further ado, I present… the beer advent calendar.

Of course, my holiday budget kept me from gifting a case of Westvleteren 12, but the High Life is not a bad alternative [wince].  It’s got that throwback taste to the early college years, which is charming in its own strange way.  At the very least, it’s something for my friends to look forward to every day after a long day at work… or before their day at work.  Or maybe it’s just a countdown to rehab.

    This could quite possibly be the finest Christmas present ever. It’s truly the gift that keeps giving…for more than three weeks. The main challenge will be sticking to the strict regimen of only one High Life per day. So tempting to down one in the morning with corn flakes, another at lunch, etc. Fortunately it’s not a Schaefer: “the one beer to have when you’re having more than one.” Perhaps I’ll save the last one for Santa; a little something to wash down the cookies and jerky we’ll leave for him.

    This brilliant gift idea reminded me of Bad Santa – the kid’s advent calendar. That Santa would love to find this by the fireplace.

      You know, it’s also a coincidence that there happens to be exactly 24 hours in a day too. Just throwin’ that out there in case one of those bad days at work strikes…

    I showed this to a friend who says its the perfect gift for another of her friends. That is the spirit of the holidays – the spirit of giving to others. What’s even better is that it is quite unlikely that someone would already have one!

      Ha, cool! The front panel got kind of flimsy after all the door-cutting, so there’s definitely room for improvement on this. I was pretty happy with the way it came out, though. It turns out that 24 bottles is exactly half of a homebrew batch… the mental gears are turning for next year’s plans.
