I do like this #beer! Been a while since I've had it. πŸΊπŸ‘πŸ» #sapporo

It's Sunday funday so day 7 and 8 are both being consumed! Day 8 is Begyle Brewing's Christmas Ale. This is a solid Christmas ale, very demonstrative of everything great about them.

Holiday preparations are complete. Fire in the stove, red and green centerpiece on the table, Captain FGS Baltic porter to keep off any chill. Not shown: snuggling with my sweetie and Doggo1.

Doctor says I can ditch the scooter and the knee crutch, start transitioning from the medical boot to hiking boots. Skiing and hiking again by February or March. Whoo hoo!

Celebrating with Doggo1 and a visit to New Bohemia Brewing.

I missed day 5! I was doing laundry πŸ˜‚ Fistmas was day 5, I have tried it before so I'll include that check-in. Day 6 is Jubelale. It's a decent combo of malt and hops.

This is the first coffee stout that I've tried that *actually* tastes like coffee. Would have been a solid 4 if it had been slightly sweeter.

I picked up my advent calendar today! Day 1 is Jingle Java Holiday Stout by Bent River Brewing (untp.beer/rNYxg). I just popped it in the fridge, I will report back later when it's cold πŸ™‚

Katz's Ale at Katz's deli. Pretty good, a nice, mild brown.

MolΓ© Merkin from Firestone. Dessert in a bottle. Also knock you on your ass in a bottle.

My local beer shop did an "advent calendar" of beer this year. I pre-ordered it and am hoping to pick it up today or tomorrow so I can start it on time!

The Mastodon instance for those who love beer. I hadn't seen any instances that were specific to beer, so I thought I'd create one. You can post reviews of beers you've tried, recommendations for others, discuss home brewing, share events, etc. Anyone is welcome, whether you're new to the world of beer or a long-time connoisseur.
