Beer Advent Final Thoughts

The Craft Beer Advent Calendar 2014 is complete.  It has been a really interesting 24 beers with a lot of variety and a veritable world tour of brews.  My wife asked if I’d be interested in doing this again.  ABSOLUTELY.  It was a fantastic experience that gave me the opportunity to try beers that I might never have the chance to try again.  I certainly hope I can for some of them, others…I’m okay not having them again.

So, let us wrap up the post with some statistics.

We had 24 beers all of which were a different style or variation on a style.
We visited

United States (3)
Netherlands (2)
Germany (2)
Brazil (2)
Guyane Francaise
England (2)
New Zealand
South Africa

We managed to hit 6 continents through this with the following stats
·         Europe (Scotland, Finland, Norway, England, Iceland, Austria, Germany, Belgium, Netherlands, and Italy)
·         North America (United States, Mexico)
·         South America (Guyane Francaise, Brazil)
·         Asia (Israel)
·         Africa (South Africa)
·         Oceania (Australia, New Zealand)

Certainly the majority of the beers came from the European countries with absolutely NONE coming from Canada.  We had some repeat countries as listed above with 3 coming from the United States as the top contributor.

My favorite beer for the entire 24 days?  It’s actually rather funny that I should have my favorite beer on the fourth day of the Calendar!  My favorite beer from the entire calendar comes to us from:

Peak Brewing Company in Portland, Maine and is the Hop Blanc

What a journey it has been.  I’m glad to have taken it and hope that you all following along enjoyed it as well.  Please continue to follow me as I blog at my new home: www.beerwinnipeg.com

I hope to see you all there!
