Craft Beer Advent Calendar – Dec 8, 2017

We decorated the tree at Kristi’s parent’s house last night.  Mistletoe leggings and Christmas shirt. This outfit is lit, fam.


Today’s beer is Phillips Instigator Doppelbock.  According to the bottle this is the original liquid bread.  I don’t know what I think about it.  Kristi described it as tasting “thick.”  It’s definitely full bodied and is boozy enough to pass for an 8.5% beer.


When I poured it into the glass, I expected it to be darker.  Apparently this style of beer is a German lager and dates back centuries. Used to sustain monks through their fast of Advent or lent.  Cheaters. This beer is definitely filling though.  Unfortunately, I’m just not feeling this. Probably gonna take me awhile to get the rest of this bottle down but I’ll be damned if I’m gonna pour it out.


Not sure what you guys did to deserve 2 pug photos in one day, but I can’t not finish with a pug pic.  This one includes my beautiful gf too.  You’re welcome
