It dawned on me over the weekend that any followers of my blog that haven’t ‘liked’ my Facebook page, those that aren’t ‘friends’ with me on Untappd or don’t ‘follow’ my Instagram feed completely missed out on my photographic prowess where my giant beer advent calendar was concerned last month.
I’d like to make amends for that mishap right here and now with a simple gallery containing all 24 beers that featured in my calendar.
So, without further ado, here they are in chronological order (click on any image to view larger)…

I’m sure you’ll agree that I was a very lucky boy indeed. Far luckier than this fella (below). He’s one of the mini 250 Beers posing with his rather substandard Cadbury’s advent calendar. He seemed happy enough though. Sadly, I didn’t take a photo every time he popped a chocolate out of it.
Happy chappy posing in front of Daddy’s far superior advent calendar.
