Our annual tradition is back for its fifth year! For anyone new to the group this year, Newfermenters organizes a homebrew advent beer calendar every year. 24 people submit 24 bottles of beer and in return receive one of everyone each submitted beer. Then, starting December 1st, everybody drinks one beer per day and we all talk about it on our Facebook group.

This year, to help accommodate growing demand, we will be organizing two separate and independent calendars! Entrants only submit 24 bottles, not 48. Each calendar will be handled separately as a group of 24 participants.

Have fun decorating the bottles, creativity encouraged! Also: please ensure your beer are packaged in clean, reusable packaging.

How to Enter

To sign up, head over to the Newfermenters Facebook group and comment on the Advent Calendar Announcement Post. A list of entrants will be updated in that post.
