Countdown To The Holidays With This BEER Advent Calendar


The holidays are practically at our doorsteps and the majority of us are scrambling to find the perfect last-minute gift for our loved ones. A new novelty item from Quebec might be the most considerate thing we’ve ever seen this holiday season: a BEER ADVENT CALENDAR.

Consideration, after all, is to be expected from our brothers to the North.

Around this time of year, Advent Calendars are the perfect gift to keep track of the days of December, eventually leading to Christmas. Inside the calendar is a little treat you can consume each day (usually chocolate) to help you get hyped for the end of the month.

Coming from Canadian beer retailer DBSQ, the ‘calendar’ is essentially a box with the 24 days before Christmas labeled on it. Under each number is a different Québécois microbrew from the retailer. Simple and brilliant.

Now if they only made a mega box that had 365 days on it. Maybe in a perfect world.

A 2012 Pinup Calendar Starring Sexy Pizza

The “L’asso 2012 Pizza Calendar” themed “Pizza is My Lover” is a racy 12-month calendar featuring pizza…as pinup girls. The shoot was handled by Ashley Macknica, and even includes a pull out centerfold. The Calendar is priced out at $10, and from the available shots we’ve pulled from the brand’s purchase page, we get a pretty decent idea of what to expect. Pizza sitting sexy on a furry single seater? How about posing on a beautiful beach? To find out the other 10 months of the year, it looks like we’ll have to buy it.

It’s up to you if you care that much.
