Day 14: Coffee Stout, Go Go Radio Stout, Cookies & Cream Liqueur

On December 14th, 2019, we were happy to see that we both got to drink a stout.  The Cookies & Cream Liqueur also sounded pretty good. Out of the stout advent box, is the Coffee Stout by Schlafly, which is brewed and bottled by The Saint Louis Brewery, LLC in St. Louis, MO.  At 5.7%…

Day 7: Fantastic Voyage, Coffee Bender, Tequila

On December 7, 2019, we unwrapped the beer of the night.  A brown ale, imperial stout with coconut, and tequila was on the agenda for us tonight. Before enjoying our beer though, we went on a showshoe hike, which our kittens joined for the fun… Out of the stout advent box, the imperial stout with…

Day 6: Amber Ale, Late Night Karate Kicks, Stryker

Happy Friday!  Tonight’s beer for both of us is NOT going to include taking the shot out of the advent box… will explain why towards the end. Out of the stout advent box, it is an Amber Ale.  Definitely smells a bit hoppy, but the taste isn’t too bad.  This is an American Amber Ale…

Day 5: Nitro Milk Stout, Hoppy Farmhouse Ale, Vodka

On Thursday, December 5, 2019, before we ate dinner we learned which beer we would each have, as well as the shot of the night.  A coffee milk stout, another IPA and vodka. From the stout box is the Steep Drop!, which is a nitro coffee milk stout.  It is brewed with fair trade, small…

Day 1: Oatmeal Stout, Screenshot & Rum Horchata

On December 1, 2019, we opened the packaging of our first beer to see what we could look forward to after dinner.  Beforehand, I was asked what if I found the first is an IPA… my response was, ‘Well, it is what it is and I’ll just have to deal with it.’ This morning we…

2019 Craft Beer Advent Box Time!

We hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving! It is that time of year again!  This time I took a break from creating our own box and ordered them from the Craft Beer Cellar in Clayton, MO.  When the email came through, stating that pre-orders were being accepted, I learned quickly that shipping was also an…

Days 19 – 24

As we traveled for the holidays, this post is a bit overdue… so I figured I’d combine these last few days together. On the 19th day, I had the same beer my boyfriend had the night before and then he had a barrel aged ale.  The Hibernation Ale is aged in whiskey barrels and brewed…

Day 18 – Lump of Coal

On the eighteenth day of December, we opened a beer that was shared.  The other day we were cleaning up the garage and my boyfriend ran across an empty bottle of this.  He made a comment where I decided to not take this one out of our box and have it again this year. If…

Day 17 – Blonde Ale & Porter

On the seventeenth day of December, we opened a blonde ale and porter.  When we first unwrapped these, I was tempted to just do a shareable of a beer I’ve got stocked up because it is that good… but since we can’t find it up here in the U.P. of Michigan, I try to make…
