Cheeky bastard

Under threat: can you help populate this year's calendar?
Yeah, I know, I know. How about crowdfunding your December descent into borderline alcoholism? But the way things are, I couldn't do this again this year and still eat/buy the kids Christmas presents. 

So I've thrown the whole thing upon your mercy, dear reader. I'm more than happy to go through the annual liver endure-a-thon that is the Beer Advent Calendar, but I need your help this time.

I'm a bit uneasy about it, to be honest. Essentially, I'm asking you all to buy me a pint so I can refer to it off-handedly while getting on with the important business of documenting my continuing woes. But let's face it, the latter is why you bother coming back anyway, so perhaps it's worth it all the same.

As a result, I've launched a Kickstarter campaign so I can afford to stump up the cash for the beer. As you'll already know, I don't want to get free beer from brewers as that means I'll feel in hock to them. And if their beer's shit, I want to be free to say so. All the beer I've ever tasted on this site has been paid for out of my own pocket, guaranteeing the integrity of every review.

This year, my pocket has run dry. The desire is still there, yet the funds are not. If you feel you can chip in and make it happen, I'd be delighted.

Check out the spurious rewards you could receive by backing this campaign on this website. I guarantee I'll be as good as my word.

Thank you.

I'm in! Xmas without your beer advent calendar would not be the same.
