As awesome as this idea sounds, it does create one problem: unless you can buy 25 individual bottles of beer, you're going to end up with an extra five bottles of every beer and this becomes one very expensive advent calendar. I'm thinking it would be best to gather a bunch of beer-loving friends and go in on this project together.
I'd also get a kick out of doing this with a bunch of homebrewers. Can you imagine everyone brewing a batch of their favorite beer and then doing a big exchange at the beginning of December? I can think of no better way to toast the holidays than enjoying a different friend's homebrew every day of the month. (Note to self for next year on this one.)
