On the 1st of December, my wife brought home a Stone Brewing Company "Twelve Days of IPA's" 12 pack.
I thought this was a cool idea for a mixed 12 pack. I don't think I've ever seen one quite like this. You can have a different beer every day for 12 days.
Taking that line of thought a step farther ... \I thought it would be fun to drink a different beer a day until Christmas. Sort of an Advent calendar of drinking. I had almost half covered with Stone IPA's. I am sure I can come up with another 13 different beers to drink before Christmas.
On the 1st Day of December, I had my first Stone IPA from the 12 pack ... Sublimely Self-Righteous Black IPA.
To be honest, I didn't realize this beer still existed. It was one of my favorite all-time beers, but I think it was discontinued for awhile. I appears to be back.
On the 2nd Day of December, I had SheppyBrew's Lithuanian Autumn Ale. Since then, the keg has kicked, so I won't have any more of it.
It was a nice malty beer while it lasted.
On the 8th Day of December, I had another of the "Twelve Days of IPA's" 12 pack ... Tangerine Express Hazy IPA.
It was quite tasty and not as disgustingly cloudy as many "hazy" IPA's. I really enjoyed it.
On the 9th Day of December, I drank a Locavore Lilly Hammer No Coast IPA that I had in the beer fridge.
Its a nice local IPA. Not quite a West Coast IPA. Not quite East Coast. Certainly not an NEIPA. Just a tasty IPA.
So, that is part 1. The first 9 days of December
Stay tuned, as I drink a different beer every day before Christmas, I'll share more. Sheppy's Blog: 25 Beers of December.
