The Hairy Bar Snacks Instagram Pork Scratchings & Beer Advent Calendar 2019

This was a ridiculous idea, I know! And what a total and utter ballache to do it. Having to find 24 different bags of pork scratchings. Then finding 24 different beers. Taking 24 pictures of the beer and scratchings. 'Remembering' to actually take 24 pictures every day. Posting the pictures on Instagram. Actually 'remembering' to post them on Instagram every day (not possible for me).

But Why Now?

Well, this blog post is round up of the evant, after the fact. The instagram posts were posted between the 1st and the 24th of December 2019. Because back in November 2019, I saw that a lot of people were looking at our pork scratchings advent calendar page. Christmas was coming, Advent calendars were all the rage.

A few days earlier, I had just received a most generous delivery from Ray Gray Snacks, loads of bags of Scratchings, Crackling, Sausalami! I had also just bought an out of date beer advent calendar from the Forest Farm Shop in Fairlop, Essex (they sell cheap out of date beer! It's a great way to try different beers cheaply). With all of these, I almost had enough 'stuff' to make this thing happen.

I always have a few different beer varieties in the shed, so they will help the cause too. Then a few days later I received a couple more bags in a delivery from Awfully Posh Snacks. That combined with a couple of bags found on a recent holiday and I think I might just have enough pork and ale to make this thing happen. I decided to go for it. I hoped that I wouldn't run out of supplies.

Every day of the Instagram Pork Scratchings & Beer Advent Calendar

I did post one image for every one of the 24 days of advent. I may not have posted each one on the correct day. A couple of days I forgot, so doubled up on the next day. Please forgive me.

the Anomoly Days

These days are stylistically different from the others.
December 4th: I was out of the house and I totally forgot! I was having a pint in The Elephant's Head Pub in Camden. They don't sell scratchings.
December 7th: HBS team member Phil sent me this one. Ta!
December 19th: HBS team member Phil sent me this one. Ta!
