OTTAWA, ON – Nita Beer Co. has announced details of the second annual Craft Holiday Beer Calendar, a multi-brewery advent calendar featuring 24 mystery beers from Nita and 20 other breweries.
For this year’s edition, the scope of the participants has expanded beyond the Ottawa area to feature breweries from across Ontario, including Whiprsnapr, Eastbound, Grain & Grit, Crooked Mile, Broadhead, Cartwright Springs, Ridge Rock, Riverhead, Kichesippi, Weatherhead, Junction, Left Field, People’s Pint, Calabogie, Clocktower, Evergreen, Étienne Brûlé, Covered Bridge, 5 Paddles, and Tuque de Broue.
As with a traditional advent calendar, each can of beer – 22 x 473 ml and 2 x 355 ml – is marked with a number from 1 to 24, and is intended to be consumed on that date in December, leading up to Christmas on the 25th.
Under their Manufacturer’s Representative License, Nita is allowed to store and distribute beer from other breweries, but cannot offer it for in-person sales at the brewery retail store. Instead, the Calendar must be ordered online and will be delivered to customers via a local delivery service in Ottawa, or Canada Post for the rest of Ontario. A limited number of packages will also be available at select Beer Store locations in Ottawa, Kingston, and Toronto.
Pre-orders for the Craft Holiday Beer Calendar can be made now online, with deliveries starting the week of November 11th. Beer Store distribution will also take place in early November.
