The 12 Canberra Beers of Christmas

Calum Stenning

Odds are, if you drink beer, you’ll probably drink more than 12 over the Christmas period.

Whether you drink one a day like a boozy advent calendar or just provide a selection of all 12 for your guests on Christmas Day, these are our local recommendations for silly season sippers.

We dare you to try and not sing along.

Calum Stenning

Calum Stenning is Her Canberra’s newest and most male (read: only) intern. Three years spent living overseas has given him a renewed appreciation for Canberra life. Every day starts with coffee and the Sydney Morning Herald crossword at a favourite coffee haunt, as he is wary of the perils of dementia, and thinks crosswords are a viable safeguard. If he lives to a dementia-appropriate age (evidence says he won’t), he’ll let us know. More about the Author
