OT - My wife is amazing

She is so in many ways, but when we came home tonight, she had a surprise.....











After having kept an eye out for commercially available beer calendars (which she has bought me in previous years) without any success, she went to the store and painstakingly selected 23 large cans of beer and 1 exceptional, large bottle of chocolate milk stout before numbering them, resulting in a most excellent craft beer advent calendar. She wrapped them up with my daughter and gave them to me upon our return home from work. 

I am a very fortunate man.

    Better to be lucky than good any day.  Great score but as noted by @SGH the return serve has to be elevated by several orders of magnitude.  ;)
    Have fun with that.  =)

    It’s great she went to all the effort to pick them out and number them. With a big one for Christmas Eve. You want to have fun, put a calendar together that she opens with a Honey-do list item accomplished every day and Christmas Eve will be extra-special

    Hey, I recognize most of these!  Where in Ontario are you, and is your wife single?  :)

    Maybe you can buy one of those for her. Be sure and pick beers you know she would not like, but that would fit perfectly with your beer palate?????

    Maybe this isn’t what it appears to be?  She may be limiting you to one beer a day in a nice way?  Either way, it’s a really nice gesture, now go and top it for her if you can

    No, no. These are just supplemental. At least that's the way I choose to see them.

    Hope your right on that one   Canada (I’m from Cambridge) has great craft beer!  I’m in Florida right now and they kill us with wine selection and prices

    Very nice!  My wife picked up one of the commercial ones for me, but yours is special for sure!

  • While I can make no claims to being the world’s best husband, I will say that for those of you suggesting I do some things around the house, I’ll mention that these are things I already routinely do. Potentially why my wife does such things for me. 

    Not to get all sappy and whatnot, but we try to love one another - love being a verb and not only an emotion.

    I think each 473ml can was between about $3.50 and $4.00 CAD. The bottle was much more.

    Nothing wrong with the commercial ones at all. As I say, this is what my wife had originally been after!

    It’s fair to say that I am into beer, so in truth, I’ve already had most of these. I’ve liked IPAs for years and years and my wife knows this, so they feature heavily in the mix. Yesterday’s amber lager was not exactly in my wheelhouse. Reds, browns and ambers are not really my thing. This being said, I’ll drink anything with bubbles. 

    I think that Muskoka’s IPAs, including Mad Tom and especially, Twice As Mad Tom, are phenomenal specimens. I believe the latter may recently have been discontinued. At least that is what I have heard. A shame, as it was a great DIPA. 

    Today’s Nickel Brook was awesome. Really fruity and tropical. 

    What have you been drinking recently, and what would you recommend?
