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 1:Ploughed through a lot of work today.Spinning at the gym in the morning.Enlivened by the fire alarm going off while I was in the sauna…Back to work.It’s December 1, so the Beer Advent Calendar is open!The Beer:Julebrygg from Ægir Bryggeri of Flåm, Norway.A great start to the Christmas beer season – plummy with raisins :-)

Day 2:Started off with working on the blog.Took a break to go beer hunting and scored big.Back to the desk and finished my St. Petersburg article.Made dinner and drove Rebecca to athletics.Opened the second “window” of the Beer Advent Calendar.The Beer:Juleøl from Reins Kloster of Rissa, Norway.Even better than yesterday’s – this is a classic (albeit organic) Christmas ale.

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!

Day 4:The end of the week at last.Another big translation job for the weekend – made a start though.On to blog work and some emailing.Did a shopping run then settled into the sofa.Had a fab Christmas beer to kick-start the weekend.The Beer:Special Holiday Ale from Nøgne Ø of Grimstad, Norway.And so it continues – an even better one again today. This is a near-perfect winter beer with quite a punch.

Day 5:A bit of a lie-in as it’s Saturday.Did a little work after breakfast before heading out into the storm.There was worse to come so it was time to take in the trampoline.Made it to spinning at the gym, against expectations.Out in the evening after another Xmas brew.The Beer:Lade Gaards Brygghus Juleøl from Grans Bryggeri of Sandefjord, Norway.For a store beer, this is very good – a flavoursome winter warmer.

Day 6:Up relatively early to finish the translation job.After that I wanted nothing more than to be a couch potato all day long.That was pretty much what happened, too.Had an early beer – which was amazing – then hit the basement.Binge-watched “Homeland” for the evening.The Beer:Munin Belgian Christmas Quadrupel from Munkebo Mikrobryg of Kerteminde, Denmark.Ladies and gentlemen, we have a winner. At least so far, this killer beer is going to take some beating…

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 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…
