Andrew is not a huge fan of the holiday season. The extra clutter around the house and the gift buying stresses him out. So I thought this year I would do something to get him into the spirit. I’d seen beer advent calendars circulating around social media over the years, but I didn’t want to go that far, so I decided to do the 12 beers before Christmas. A little countdown to the big day with some holiday beers and others that I thought he may like.
This morning when I revealed the basket he was so surprised. His first beer that he opened was a local brew from Austin Street, Half Light. It went straight into the fridge, so he could drink it tonight. This was a super easy gift to put together, I just needed some tissue paper, ribbon, labels and beer. The basket was one that we already had in the house. The most difficult part was putting it together while Andrew was out.
I’m not sure if this will become a tradition in our house or not but it was fun to shop for the beers and the look on Andrew’s face was priceless.
