I quite often drink in my local real ale bar with my local priest. He
has forgotten more about homebrewing than I will ever know, his
knowledge of brewing is very impressive!!!
In fact - rather oddly considering I am 200% an atheist - I have
propped a bar up with quite a few priests in my time; religion rarely
(if ever) being discussed!!!!
P.S. Mind you, although my local vicar enjoys a drink, I don't think
he is all that keen on spam!!!
Oh my God, you've SAVED ME!!!! All these years I thought it was okay to
brew beer, but apparently I was wrong!!!! Thank you for helping me to see
Asshole. Go to hell. Oh yeah, and what those other guys said about turning
water into wine 'n' stuff... yeah, that's the truth. Word.
Given that beer was invented some thousands of years before Christ
walked the earth, and Jesus was a peasant with limited means - he
probably sipped a brew from time to time. Beer, like bread, was "the
staff of life."
Beer and wine were often made in the same buildings - Metropolitan
Museum in NYC has an Egyptian burial model showing the beer/bread
I figure the religious aristocracy rewrote the new testament
substituting wine for beer. Beer being the peasant's drink and wine
being a more fitting libation for the ruler of the universe (not to
mention the self serving aristocracy).
Like Clinton - "but I never swallowed any . . ."
Can I get an AMEN???
If drinking beer was wrong, don't you think Father Vincent (My priest when I
was a kid, and NO!!!!
he was not a child molester) would have said so?
I always heard that it was te fermented fruit of the grape that was evil,
take THAT wine snobs
Further to my previous post in this thread, I call my home brewery
"Apocalypse brewery" and my beers "Armageddon" ales.
I normally brew 4 different ales - Death, War, Pestilence and Mild.
P.S. Obviously, Death comes in a pale bottle.
there a good suggestion for a beer
make a light beer and then add piss and vinegar and call it
put a label on it that states 0 calories 0 carbs all natural with a heavenly
and call it Moral majority ale
then it would be true to it name as the moral majority is made of a small
minority of the USA
who are filled with piss and vinegar and present a front of being a good
Christian but when looking close often go against the word of god as last
time I read the bible
it stated who is with out sin cast the first stone and many of the so called
moral majority forget this way to often when they slam other people
Ok, it is a common misconseption that Jesus drank wine. If you look at the
area's of the world where Jesus lived and ministered to, they do not have
vinyards. They do however have fields and grains. It is clearly documented
that beer was present.
There is one word in the bible that reflected alcholic beverages. One word
for all alchoholic beverages. Many people use the english translation as
Cutting to the chase, Jesus drank beer. Probably no hops in it and possibly
a barley wine which is still for the purposes of debate, BEER!
I'm not sure where you got this information from. I've had some very
good Israeli wine. And although winegrowing is not a huge industry in
modern times, vineyards certainly flourished at the time of Jesus.
What I lack in accuracy I gain in enthusiasm. Actually I found the
information on the web but I would freely admit that it was not a peer
I do however like the idea of Jesus drinking beer.
