My #12BeersOfXmas 2013



Looks like the Beer O’Clock Show chaps have been at it again… suggesting another mad scheme that ensures we all drink beer.

They have decided to a collaborative review exercise type thing where starting from Friday 20th December, you drink and review a different beer each day. You can read more about it on their blog because I’m far too lazy to explain:


Anyway, they were pressuring me to get involved and after some very serious threats, I complied.

Each day I’ll post a different review. Obviously, because that’s the name of the game.

As I've got my office Christmas party on Friday, I'll be having my first tonight, but won't post until Friday.

I just received a big box of beers from Beers of Europe so here’s my list:

Day 1 – Friday 20th December –
Beck’s Ice Lime and Mint (Germany, 2.5%) - Brewdog Jackhammer (Scotland, 7.2%)

Day 2 – Saturday 21st December – St Austell Big Job (England, 7.2%)

Day 3 – Sunday 22nd December – Celt Experience Apparition IPA (Wales, 5.9%)
Day 4 – Monday 23rd December – Dia De Los Muertos Immortal Beloved Hefeweizen (Mexico, 5.5%)

Day 5 – Christmas Eve – High and Mighty Beer of the Gods (UK/USA not sure, 4.5%)

Day 6 – Christmas Day – Goose Island Bourbon County Stout 2012 (USA, 15%)

Day 7 – Boxing Day – Nomada Humala IPA (Spain, 7.3%)

Day 8 – Friday 27th December – Amstel Bock (Netherlands, 7%)

Day 9 – Saturday 28th December – Thwaites Big Ben (England, 4.4%)

Day 10 – Sunday 29th December – Reissdorf Kolsch (Germany, 4.8%)

Day 11 – Monday 30th December – Grolsch HerfstBok (Netherlands, 6.5%)

Day 12 – New Year’s Eve – Bear Republic Big Bear Black Stout (USA, 8.1%)

I have realised that I’m out of town for 3 of those days, so beers are subject to change if necessary.

See you Friday for day 1…
