2021 Bitter Pops Advent Calendar

As Bitter Pops swings open its doors, so too are Chicago’s many amazing breweries and taprooms! The 2021 Holiday Season is about getting together again, and what better way to do that than over a beer or two. Whether entertaining at home or in a Taproom, let’s hug it out this season with those that we have missed.

This year’s Bitter Pops Advent Calendar is a celebration of Re-Opening! In addition to the inspired beers that will be in the Calendar, the flexibility of the Bitter Pops Advent Calendar allows you to customize YOUR Re-Opening experiences! Enjoy all 24 yourself, bring a fridge pack to a party, or share fridge packs among a group.

What is the Bitter Pops Advent Calendar?

When we were kids, the anticipation of Christmas started in December with an advent calendar –– a tasty Holiday treat to look forward to everyday, and occasionally sneak ahead a day or two as we countdown to Christmas.

Bitter Pops Advent Calendar brings that childhood magic to your adult life with 24 tasty craft beers to help you and your loved ones celebrate the Holidays. While the Calendar is designed to be enjoyed starting Dec. 1, you can decide whether to follow the one-beer-per-day cadence, or choose to give advent calendars as gifts, share them at office gatherings, or enjoy sips with friends.
