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.
United States (3)
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
