From man’s sweat and God’s love, beer came into the world

Feel free to read about the glorious saints who have influenced beer drinkers and holy people around the world.

The Beer Saints

Saints: With Beer on Their Sides

When the Saints go Malting In

I personally like the story of
"St. Columbanus, who blew a cask of ale to bits with only his breath to prevent
a wasteful heathen sacrifice of ale to Woden. He won converts by telling all
that God loved beer, but only when drunk in His Name. St. Columbanus’s dying
wish was, “to die in the brew house; let ale be placed to my mouth when I am
expiring, so that when the choir of angels come, they may say: ‘Be God
propitious to this drinker.’”

Happy Saint Paddy's Day. Be smart in this Holy Week and in celebrating St. Paddy's Day in Moderation.
