Advent of advent

Crate expectations: December's drinks diary
Only the waiting remains. The crate is full, the calendar made. 

Now, like countless school children across the land, it falls to me to resist opening a square before December begins.

As with every year, I'm going to make a real effort to keep in on track for the whole of December, but regular readers will know that's a more difficult task than it sounds. Yet with some good luck, a fair wind and, crucially, very little work lined up for December, I think I've a better chance this year than I've ever had before.

That said, this year's social diary looks busier than it has before, despite no longer having an office Christmas bash to attend. Must remember to book my annual post-Christmas slot at the Priory.

If anyone would like to join in with the festivities this year and, you know, post some comments, below is a list of the beers in this year's crate. I've no idea what's behind each of the numbers, but it's a fairly safe bet the Delirium's under number three, isn't it?

So, in no particular order, they are:
