Catholic Joy: Beer!


I didn’t realize how “Catholic” the joy of beer is until I started brewing it and learning about it. The ingredients are elemental, organic, natural: water, grain, hops, yeast. Making beer requires some attention and skill. It’s also hard work to make. Sanitation is important.

But, as Ben Franklin says, beer is proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy. There are few things more joyful than a table set for friends and family, with good food and good beer!
