Craft Beer Advent Calendar – Dec 17,18,19

Well that was a vicious spiral of not having time to write blogs. Between work, Christmas parties and dinners, I'm finally home late on Tuesday night with the intention of putting back 3 beers.  None of which I'm very excited for. Let's dive in.  First up is the Kaleidoscope Mosaic IPA. Mosaic refers to the … Continue reading Craft Beer Advent Calendar – Dec 17,18,19

Craft Beer Advent Calendar – Dec 16, 2017

These days seem to be never ending.  Today I got to play in the Surrey Dodgeball League tournament where we played and raised funds for the Surrey Christmas Bureau.  No official numbers are in but we were sitting around what we believed to be $7000 worth of toys and cash donations.  This community is unreal.  … Continue reading Craft Beer Advent Calendar – Dec 16, 2017

As I stare at this beer, I wonder the easiest and most painless way to drink it.  Today I've drawn the Double Dragon Imperial Red Ale. Just as expected when I saw the 8.2% on the label, this beer is strong and boozy.  I'm officially going on 4 days in a row of beers that … Continue reading Craft Beer Advent Calendar – Dec 15, 2017

As we fly through day after day I'm realizing how close we are to Christmas. It feels like the season just started but here it is, only 11 days away.  I need a haircut and a shave pretty bad.  I also have some shopping that still needs to be done. Yet I can't seem to … Continue reading Craft Beer Advent Calendar – Dec 14, 2017

The first of the 2 is the blackberry "heifer bison." I figured this would be the best … Continue reading Craft Beer Advent Calendar – Dec 12 + 13

Craft Beer Advent Calendar – Dec 11, 2017

Apparently my days keep getting longer. Out of the house by 8:30am. Home for 1 hour from 5-6pm and not home again until 11:45pm.  And I've been looking forward to this beer all day long.  An oatmeal stout to cap off a great night. I'm all over this beer like a fat kid on a … Continue reading Craft Beer Advent Calendar – Dec 11, 2017

Craft Beer Advent Calendar – Dec 10, 2017

Another long day of work has me wishing I drank before I went there.  Though this is a worthy reward for the end of my night.  I've just opened up the Phoenix Gold Lager. Shoutout to Kristi and Dan for letting me use their gingerbread house as a prop for my pic! The name Phoenix … Continue reading Craft Beer Advent Calendar – Dec 10, 2017
