It's just from Costco, but I did get a German craft beer advent calendar. It had never occurred to me to look for these before, and I hadn't heard of them until now, but I feel like this will probably have to become a tradition...

This year I won't even have to miss days due to holiday travel!
But yeah, this one shop's been doing it for two or three years now and it's a fabulous idea. Especially since my beer tastes are broad enough now that there's rarely more than a couple things out of the 24 that I really have no interest in drinking.

This is breaking my heart.

In other news anyone want to ship a box that's totally not a beer advent calendar to Utah?

Lunch beers all week because IDGAF. Got a good stash from Colorado and have been really enjoying Avery's Imperial Marzen (The Kaiser). Also got 2 big bottles of Chimay Blue to save for special occasions.

Hey so what is everyone drinking tonight?

I am busting into the Chimay for either celebration or commiseration. 750ml can't be healthy but.....

I only have Elysian pumpkin spice beer onhand, but I might hit the whiskey for The Big Night. Hmm, too late to run to the store...?
 
I can't decide. There's a part of me that wants to try to get ahead on work just in case I'm a mess tomorrow, but another that could really use the chilling out. Hmm.

I had a bottle of 2017 DKML I had lying in the fridge, a ridiculous "imperial malt liquor" craft beer at 14.5% abv. Seemed like a good decision to take the edge off last night.
 
Deschutes released the Abyss as 4-packs of 12oz bottles this year instead of the usual 22oz, my spouse found the pack in the grocery store and I flipped out. This is my favourite beer but I'm a lightweight (even more so this year) so can't polish off a bottle on my own. I would be thrilled if other breweries do this as well, there are so many beers I love but can't handle myself.

Went to the bottle shop over the weekend where I'd pre-ordered the craft beer advent calendar to pick it up... and ended up buying another like $120 worth of craft singles, since I hadn't been to a bottle shop since pre-COVID. My backlog is replenished.
