The Advent Calendar vs. The Ultimate Advent

What’s the difference?

The 2018 Advent Calendar is a brilliant Christmas gift to either yourself or the beer lover in your life, stuffed with 24 delicious beers from Europe’s finest breweries.

Stuffed with crowd-pleasing styles and flavours that any beer lover can enjoy with plenty of new discoveries to be made, including a few collaboration beers we made with Northern Monk and Cloudwater.


The Ultimate edition of our advent calendar is the next level up, perfect for self-proclaimed beer geeks and craft beer connoisseurs.

We’ve procured seasonal and limited-edition releases from the world’s most hype-worthy breweries such as Whiplash, Evil Twin, Verdant, Cloudwater, Stillwater and Wander Beyond.

Expect bolder styles including barrel-aged imperial stouts, mixed fermentation sours, and New England IPA. Bigger beers, higher ABVs and masses of hops combine to create a next-level advent beer experience.

Watch the artwork time lapse

“My artwork is based around a cast of characters, creatures, and objects dragged from my imagination and discovered in my surroundings. It often has a fantastical or surreal feeling to it.

I try to make images that are both interesting to look at and hint at an idea of a greater story. The HonestBrew advent calendar is a great example of this; there’s so much going on, and each section could be expanded into its own narrative.”


About the packaging

Working with our packaging supplier, we’ve designed a calendar that looks fantastic and is delivered safely to you. Shipping-quality cardboard and an extra protective outer ensure it arrives safely and ready to open on December 1st!.

Spoiler-Free Shipping Box

We also make sure to ship the Advent in a plain outer box – so if it’s a surprise for someone, they won’t know what’s inside!

Your questions, answered.

Got a more complex question? Try us on live chat, 8:30am-6pm weekdays.

Can I add a personalised message?
Absolutely! Just look for the option to do this at the checkout.

How are the beers stored before they’re delivered to me?
We use a cold-store to ensure the beers are kept as fresh as possible before being shipped.

Will the advent contain 24 different beers?
Absolutely! No repeats here!

I don’t like surprises, can I find out the beers ahead of time?
Sure thing, check the spoiler button on this page!

I don’t know which Advent to pick, help!
If you’re a craft beer fan and you want to sample some more high quality brews, we recommend you go for the ‘Advent Calendar’. If you like to push the boundaries with the beers you’re drinking we recommend the ‘Ultimate Advent Calendar’.

What’s the latest I can order my advent?
You can order yours as long as they’re in stock, but the last chance for December 1st delivery is 3pm (mainland UK only).

Delivered from date?
Advent will arrive from November 13th 2018.

What size are the beers?
All beers are full size 330ml or 440ml

What does delivery cost?
Shipping in the UK is free, except remote locations. Shipping outside of the UK is dependent on location.

How fresh are the beers?
We believe in sourcing the freshest beers possible, all beers will be finished & packaged in the weeks before we send the calendar  – so they’re extremely fresh!

Hoppy beers will be situated earlier in the calendar to ensure they taste as good as possible.

How does the advent calendar look when delivered?
All Christmas products are delivered in spoiler-free, plain packaging.
