2016 Costco Beer Advent Calendar

Christmas comes early to Costco with the arrival of the German beer Advent calendar. The 2016 Brewer’s Advent Calendar is a boxed set of 24 German different beers in 16.9 oz cans. They are loaded into a box with a Christmas scene on one side and numbers 1-24 on the other side.

My complaint with this, and many other beer Advent calendars, is that it doesn’t contain many Christmas or Winter beers. It’s just 24 German beers, a couple of  Winter beer in the mix. Click on the photo to read the list of beers.

Beer Advent calendars have become popular in recent years. Though not displacing chocolate Advent calendars. I’ll take one of each! Because of draconian alcohol laws in the United States, shipping beer state to state is problematic. So, you’ve got to either find your beer Advent calendar at a Costco or make your own.

This year, there’s a Kickstarter going with a load-your-own reusable Beer Advent Calendar box. I bought six! Read about it and support this project!

The best way to go is to download my list of 15 Favorite Christmas Beers, track them down, and load them in your own Beer Advent Calendar.

    While it's difficult to picture Santa as a young man, he was once. He met the future Mrs. Claus one snowy night when she offered him a winter ale that she brewed herself. It was love at first sight - for both the Mrs. and her winter ales. With Santa's growing fame, his favorite brews became named after his favorite day - Christmas. Santa now travels the world each year to spread the joy that began in a stable in Bethlehem two millennia ago.
