and the price went down $1.20 from when I snagged one last week??


what brews does this pack contain?

All is being revealed daily here:

To this amateur, nothing (so far) worth paying nearly 6 bucks for a 330ml bottle

Im sure there could have been a lot more excitement over this if it was promoted on a bigger scale...even if some of the beers are a bit meh.

I think it's the ones listed on their website:

Day 1: Birrificio del Doge APA

Day 2: Camba Bavaria Bavarian Winter

Day 3: Teerenpeli Laiskajaakko

Day 4: Ticketybrew Rose Wheat

Day 5: Inveralmond DeMons Belgian Abbey Ale

Day 6: Loncium Sweet Krampus

Day 7: Naparbier The Crimson Bird Raspberries

Day 8: Schloss Eggenberg Silver Bottle Beer

Day 9: Fabryka Piwa Deep Space

Day 10: BIIR Equinox Triple IPA

Day 11: De Molen Winter Saison

Day 12: Wąsosz / Humalove Pukki

Day 13: Nøgne Ø Adventurous Brown

I like this concept actually. May order a pack.

did all of these calendar beers need to be tested by the lcbo? Seems like a lot of work to only sell a few units?

I did seem over priced, but I'm a sucker for beers I have not tried, and this seemed like the best way to get my hands on many I probably would not have had the chance to get any other cheaper way. ...... plus I get to justify because, you know, it's the holidays ....

Not all the beers have been fantastic but it's definitely been exciting to try new offerings from small European craft breweries (most of which I've never heard of or are ever likely to see in Ontario). Whether that's worth $6/per is another question...

432 available online.

Just got mine on Wednesday which was good because if you follow the Julien calendar that is the first day of advent.

Unless you follow the Royal Bank calendar then it isn't.

Two of those were me - one that Canada Post damaged and the one that is replacing it.

Okay those that have the advent box:

What are you going to do once all the beers are gone?

1) return the whole thing to TBS

2) return the empties by themselves and recycle the box

3) return the empties and keep the box and make up your own for next year

4) ditto #3 and regift the box next year

Lastly would you buy again next year?

Mine was a gift so sure hit me again!

I will - 2) return the empties by themselves and recycle the box

I would by again next year, but ONLY if promised that the beers would all be different than the previous year.

Same here. This specific agent (Craft) guarantees no duplicates over the years, so a safe bet to do again. Price is a bit ridiculous, but for the novelty sort of worth it. From about day 14 or so the quality actually jumped a decent amount. Really curious on 24.
