Craft Beer Advent Calendar, pt 2


Two weeks ago I wrote about the fabulous craft beer advent calendar that Jack got me for Christmas. I reviewed the first 12 beers, and now I’m back to review the latter 12! Here goes…

Berliner Pilsner is a yummy Pilsner… But I don’t really remember much more than that!

Brooklyn 1/2 Ale is a fab little beer with a low ABV. It’s tasty, easy to drink and is definitely a good session beer. Our favourite from these three!

Pale Ale is a good pale ale, but in my opinion not Flying Dog’s best beer – still yummy though!

Inedit is the creation of world renowned chef Ferran Adrià. Despite all of the online reviews telling me I mustmustMUST drink it with food, I started it just before my dinner, and finished it during… And preferred it without food. Anyway, it’s bloody good; there flavours really come through, and it’s truly scrumptious! Our favourite of the three, just in case you hadn’t guessed!

Kwak is a delicious, strong Belgian beer – if you like ’em like that, you’ll love this. We did.

Tripel Karmeliet is another Belgian beer, this time a lovely golden 8.4% ABV (!) and it tastes mighty fine for it. Mmm!

Anchor IPA is an easy drinker, though nothing exceptional.

Easy IPA is good IPA, but again, nothing exceptional to report – I preferred it to the Anchor, though!

Erdinger Weissbier is our favourite of these three, despite being a wheat beer (is it me, or do I not dislike wheat beers as much as I think I do?). It’s really tasty, with good flavours and I could happily drink a few in an evening.





Delirium Tremens is a beer that Jack and I first tried at The Dovetail in Clerkenwell, on the day I found out I’d gotten into university… So, it holds a pretty special place in my heart… It’s a good, strong Belgian beer!

Gamma Ray is a delicious pale ale, and we adore Beavertown for the most part. A good everything beer!

Black Chocolate Stout is my kind of beer – stouts and porters are generally what I consider to be “my thing”, and this one doesn’t disappoint. It’s rich and chocolatey and delicious. Yum! My definite favourite out of these three.


Phew! What a lot of beers! I’d like to note that Jack and I shared the tastings between the two of us and we didn’t gobble it all in one sitting (!) just in case you were wondering… Hope you enjoyed seeing and hearing about the beers, and please click here if you want to take a gander at the first 12. Take care guys!
