There really IS beer church!

And yes, the brew is served. Seems like kind of an "aught aught" version of Jesus freaks... without the freaks (and what ARE we calling this decade anyway? Does anyone know? It's more than half over!). It's attracting a lot of young people, they play Sufjan Stevens and discuss Cobain and Marley. It's a christian interdenominational church, appears to be fundamentalist, and is having a real problem with the Baptists, who provided a lot of their $$$, and don't approve of the boozing. Looks like they might have to either pay them off or dance with the one that brung them (at arm's length).

Actually, this beer church sounds like more fun and has a more tangible purpose (it's about the beer, let us not forget). Its motto is "Beer Church. We Drink" and that's their insignia. You can even get an official ordination certificate with this at the bottom: "God gave us 24 hours in a day. There's 24 bottles of beer in a case. You think that's just a coincidence?" They've also got some other merch items, including a sign like the one on the right.

Late January must be "beer church" time for me. Look at my post from last January 19!

I do believe that I may be some kind of unofficial Pope of that Church. Blessings of beer unto me.

This may actually convince The JohnnyB to convert from being a fundamentalist agnostic back to the arms of, well, beer... :-)
Can you imagine the vast possibilities of Pastafarians and the Beer Church?

By the way - I have just published a post that is dedicated to you. I think you're gonna like it a lot!

That just might be the only way in the world to get Mr Pop into a church of any kind.
