Day 15:Hmm, not a huge improvement in my ‘arbeidslyst’ today either.Mind you, did get an interesting press trip offer.Nothing confirmed and it will mean changing plans in January.But if it comes through it would be a great start to 2016.Too full at the gym to swim but had a lengthy sauna.The Beer:St. Niklaus from 7 Fjell Bryggeri of Bergen, Norway.Lots of taste and very good for a store beer. Can’t help wondering how great it would be with more alcohol though…

Day 21:Monday again.Am in Christmas mode now, so slept in until 1030.That was a little unexpected, to be honest…Then it was time for some shoppingWith that done, back home for one of the beers I picked up.The Beer:Schneeweisse from Erdinger Weissbrau of Erding, Germany.You can’t really go wrong with an Erdinger hefeweizen, and this Christmas edition is no exception – lovely.

Day 10:More work to start the day.Made it to the gym for my 50 lengths in the pool.Then did a beer run and came up trumps.Back to finish the project and make dinner.Took the best of Monday’s tasting beers again tonight – I was right…The Beer:Vellagret Juleøl from Aass of Drammen, Norway.A superb Christmas beer from Norway’s oldest brewery.

Day 24:And it’s Christmas Eve – and the end of the Beer Advent Calendar already.Still have loads of Christmas beers to get through though.The homebrew is bubbling away nicely in the cellar by the way.Today’s tasks were basically to catch up on beer diary posts and clear up.With that done, we’re off for Christmas dinner with friends – Happy Christmas, Readers!The Beer:Underlig Jul from Nøgne Ø of Grimstad, Norway.An excellent one for Christmas Eve – lovely rich flavour.

Day 20:Ahh, the Sunday lie-in.An essential part of the week and we made the most of it.Up for breakfast then cleared up a bit.Started planning my home brewing kit…Off for an early Christmas dinner with friends – a great end to the weekend.The Beer:Jol from Amundsen Bryggeri of Oslo, Norway.I found this a little thin, but it has a good flavour that grows on you.

Day 19:We had major plans for this Saturday.Still had a relaxing start but then we were off to town.Did most of our Christmas food shop at the farmers’ market and Mathallen.Stopped for a coffee break then did a few more errands.Finished by picking up our Xmas tree and returning home…The Beer:Julebokk 2015 from Ringnes of Oslo, Norway.This was one of the best at the beer tasting earlier this month; even better as the first beer of the day, too.

Day 14:Another week starts with a bit of a low-energy Monday.Got some stuff done though, just at a slower pace.This being December, it’s probably the calm before the storm…Did make it to the gym for a swim.Grabbed a few extra beers on the way home, including this one.The Beer:Julemanden’s Trøst from Brouwerij Sterkens of Meer, Belgium.There’s a lot going on in this one, a real taste explosion. An excellent way to keep warm this winter.

Day 9:Despite last night’s excesses, woke up feeling fine.Did have a bit of a lie-in though, which was welcome.Finished the first translation job on time.A new one came in so got going on that one too.Spent the afternoon on web design for the new site before clocking off.The Beer:Hvit Jul from Nøgne Ø of Grimstad, Norway.So, not all Christmas beers have to be black as night – this is a nice and spicy weiss…

Day 7:Back to the grind.Sent off my completed job then took a lazy day.Well, I did work the weekend after all.Broke it up with a swimming session though.Made dinner then did a little parental taxi driving before beer time.The Beer:Olav den Heldige from Noisom of Fredrikstad, Norway.And yet another cracking Xmas beer – this is as black as night and very tasty.

Day 3:It was a translation day today.Well, translation and cleaning – finally did my bit around the house.That felt good as it has been too long and gave Mari Anne a nice surprise after work.After dinner she made gingerbread which we paired with wine…It was also great with a Christmas beer, naturally.The Beer:Juleøl from Austmann of Trondheim, Norway.The bar is raised again – another superb Christmas beer from a regular store!
