Here we go again. It’s time to dig into the back of the cupboard cellar to see what wonders you have to enjoy over the festive period.

Into it’s 6th year, the original #12BeersofXmas is a way of enjoying a few special beers over the festive period. It all started off as something that I’d do to celebrate finishing work until the start of the New Year and it’s great that loads of folk now get involved in their own way.

And that’s what the #12BeersofXmas is all about – doing things your way. There’s no prescribed way of doing it, no set beers for set days, just choose a beer, drink the beer and share your thoughts about the beer on your preferred form of social media. Some folk write a blog, some post their thoughts on Twitter or Instagram, and some just check in beer on Untappd. Whatever you’re doing, make sure to use #12BeersofXmas so we can all join in the fun.

I’m not going to list my beers ahead of time this year, but will highlight a few days that are already earmarked. I’ll be starting on Thursday 20 December with Marble Brewery’s annual releases of ‘Decadence’ stout and Barley Wine 2018.

On Sunday 23 December I’ll be opening the #BeerySecretSanta that I’ve been sent and on Christmas Day I’ll be drinking my beer of the year 2018.

All the other days are up for grabs and I’ll be posting my thoughts daily on Instagram. I’m looking forward to seeing what you’re all enjoying this year, Merry Christmas and best wishes for the New Year!
