The final six pack of this year's beer advent calendar had a couple last beers with lactose that I skipped. Liam tried the first one, his only comment was it was a bit boozy, and the other is still in the fridge for him to try. The remaining four beers were a pretty good representation of the entire case, a nice way to wrap up the month of beers. The beers I was able to enjoy ranged from seasonal to on trend, old favorites and new to me, and one delicious curve ball.
This six pack may have been my favorite. I was able to enjoy every beer and managed to photograph and journal each. The six pack was a mix of classics and great flavors. My own contribution was included this week, sharing some local pride. I even improved the staging for the photos of most of the beers. This should have occurred to me sooner. I am learning and getting back into practice of sharing and doing so well. Another thing I've enjoyed about the experience and will look forward to for next year.
This is the second write up of the beer advent calendar I joined this year. If you missed it, here is the first part, covering the first of four six pack's worth of beer. That post also explains a bit about how this kind of fun works, if you are not very familiar. I only drank half of this next six pack. Two of the beers were not vegan so I gave them to my son to enjoy. I gave him a third, one that was the only duplicate out of the entire case. I wrote in my tasting journal about the beers I did try. I will try to do Liam's impressions of the two lactose beers justice.
I was invited to join a beer advent calendar this year. This was my first one as unbelievable as that seems after decades of enjoying beer. I wrote up each and nearly beer in my tasting journal. I was inspired by the potential variety in twenty-four gift wrapped beers. I enjoy writing in my tasting journal but it does take practice. Any inspiration is welcome. I took pictures to help my own recollection. I realized sharing my thoughts and pictures of these beers here could be fun in addition to recording them for my own enjoyment.
