Craft Beer Advent Calendar – That’s a Wrap

Craft Beer Advent Calendar - All 24 Beer

The craft beer advent calendar, 2014, is complete.  It has been a really interesting 24 beers with a lot of variety and a veritable world tour of brews.  My wife asked if I’d be interested in doing this again.  ABSOLUTELY.  It was a fantastic experience that gave me the opportunity to try beers that I might never have the chance to try again.  I certainly hope I can for some of them, others…I’m okay not having them again.

So, let us wrap up the post with some statistics.

  • We had 24 beers all of which were a different style or variation on a style.
  • We visited:
o        United States (3)

o        Israel

o        Netherlands (2)

o        Germany (2)

o        Brazil (2)

o        Guyane Francaise

o        England (2)

o        Belgium

o        Norway

o        Austria

o        Scotland

o        Iceland

o        Mexico

o        New Zealand

o        Australia

o        Italy

o        Finland

o        South Africa

  • We managed to hit 6 continents through this with the following stats
    • Europe (Scotland, Finland, Norway, England, Iceland, Austria, Germany, Belgium, Netherlands, and Italy)
    • North America (United States, Mexico)
    • South America (Guyane Francaise, Brazil)
    • Asia (Israel)
    • Africa (South Africa)
    • Oceania (Australia, New Zealand)

Certainly the majority of the beers came from the European countries with absolutely NONE coming from Canada.  We had some repeat countries as listed above with 3 coming from the United States as the top contributor.

Now.  My favorite beer for the entire 24 days.  It’s actually rather funny that I should have my favorite beer on the fourth day of the Calendar!  My favorite beer from the entire calendar comes to us from:

Peak Brewing Company in Portland, Maine and is the Hop Blanc

Thanks so much for following along.  I hope that you enjoyed these reviews and found them useful.  I hope that you continue to follow along as I continue to blog about beer news and reviews.
