The 2015 GTA Brews Advent Exchange is done and we’re off to the races with two separate advent calendars this year! Twice the size from last year, and twice the excitement!
Note for participants: Please remember to indicate which calendar you are drinking when posting on the FB group. Eg. “Drinking beer 21E, great job Nick Perry!”
East Side Calendar
West Side Calendar
For the second year in a row, GTA Brews organized an advent beer calendar for club members. Each participant bottled up 24 bottles of homebrew, and traded 23 other brewers to create a calendar with 24 unique beers.
The Advent Exchange happened simultaneously at two locations in Toronto on Sunday November 29th. The East side calendar exchanged at Eric’s house in East Toronto, and the West side calendar exchanged at Lansdowne Brewery in West Toronto.
Participants are encouraged to upload their recipe to the recipe sharing site set up by Chris Saunders: http://gtabrews-advent.herokuapp.com/
Another successful year for the homebrew advent tradition! Thanks to James Kennedy for running the event for the 2nd year in a row! Also thanks to Jeremy Coghill (of Lansdowne Brewery) and Eric Cousineau for hosting the exchanges. I can’t wait to taste all these delicious beers!
Don’t forget about our Winter Warmer Holiday Party this Saturday Dec 5th! Hope to see you there!
