    Hi Y'all,

    I have a beer advent calendar and so thought it would be a bit of fun for those who don't have one (if you do you can still play) to do a fantasy competition.

    In the calendar are beers of the style...

    abbey, trappist, blonde, triple,amber,brune, craft, blanche,fruit and xmas.

    Now because there are 24 beers and that's too much work for me (and you) to put down , you can choose 12 of the 24 days to guess what beer style it is. also you can play a joker (use an asterisk for this)on any of your chosen days to get double points. highest score wins. A tiebreak may be needed I'll work out what that is later. :rolleyes:

    5 points for a correct style guess
    so your entry would look like this.... (if you want to guess the brewery you can that will get you a bonus point.)

    day: beer style: brewer
    3. abbey
    4.blonde
    6. blonde:silly
    7. xmas: van housenbrouk
    11.triple
    12.abbey
    15.trappist*
    16.fruity
    20.craft: bush
    21.xmas
    22.fruity
    23.abbey

    good luck, winner gets a couple of 330ml bottles in the post to mainland uk & island of ireland.

    any questions just ask.

    forgot to add you'll need to get your guesses in before the day your first guess is due. so in the above example you'd need to put your guesses in by the 2nd december. athumb..

    This is going to be one for the lucky Irish, a pure punt, total guesswork.

    I'll be back after consulting the runes...
