It’s that time of year again, when Steve over at The Beer O’Clock Show podcasts gets the beer drinking community together with #12beersofxmas. I’ve contributed to the last two years, updating the blog with a daily review of a beer specifically picked out for the 12 beers run, and its always coincided with my work stopping for the year, so it has always felt like a heralding of the festive season. This year though, I figured I’d go off piste…
I’ve been wanting to combine my love of beer with my love of illustration for a while now and I recently picked up the paintbrush again after a long hiatus, so it seemed that the 12 beers project would be a good way for me to jump headfirst into combining two of my favourite things. So instead of the daily review, I’ll update this post with a new mini-painting of beers each day, gradually creating a little gallery.
If you wanna catch up with the details of the project then head over to beeroclockshow.co.uk and check out Twitter and Instagram for everyone’s daily reviews of some very classy brews.
Merry Christmas all!
