Advent Calendar for adults

Who says Advent Calendars are only for kids? Have you heard of the Craft BeerAdvent Calendar? Yup the 24 days of BEER! Available ONLY in Alberta, British Columbia, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Newfoundland and the Yukon …. yeah unfortunately Ontario beer drinkers cannot partake … something about the The LCBO not able to stock packages that contain more than six bottles and The Beet Store won't carry it because they say it's not cost effective for seasonal item.

But that doesn't mean you can't make one yourself … it's like adult arts and crafts, grab an old 24 case, wrap it with your own advent calendar design and perforate the tops so you can pop open each day to discover the mystery beer!

Not a fan of beer ... How about these advent calendar ideas?
