If you haven’t been keeping up, Ale to the King has been counting down to Christmas in the best way it can think of. While many go for the common or garden advent calendar with chocolate and others prefer the more traditional advent candle, Ale to the King has created the Aledvent Calendbeer. A carefully chosen beer that reflects Christmas in one way or another (no matter how tenuous the link!) will be decapitated, drunk and deliberated over until the big day itself.
Selection 1 consisted of Christmas Ale by Goose Island, Paradox Isle of Arran by Brewdog, Black Lager by Zeitgeist, Finch by Natural Selection Brewing, Samuel Smith’s India Ale by Samuel Smith Old Brewery and There is No Santa by Brewdog.
So, without further ado Ale to the King presents you with Aledvent Calendbeer Selection 2:
If you want to drink along with Ale to the King and compare notes, then you will need:
- Hefeweizen by Stewart Brewing
- Winter Ale by The Brooklyn Brewery
- India Pale Ale by Knops Beer Company
- Hop Trials – Nelson Sauvin by Tryst
- St. Mungo by West Brewery
If you’ve not been able to keep up with the Aledvent Calendbeer then now’s a great time to get on board and even make up for lost time by having a second beer a day from Selection 1!
So charge your glasses and raise it in honour of the ever approaching jolly Saint Nick. Because Christmas is a time for treating yourself as well!
