The Fusion of Hops and Heads

Craft Beer Industry and Craft Brewery News

God and Beer

NPR’s Weekend Edition Sunday aired a fascinating radio discussion over the weekend on how some churches were creating unusual Christian communities around craft beer. And that got us thinking about beer and religion in general. Wine (and drugs to a lesser but irrefutable degree) have historically played a significant part in many spiritual communities throughout the ages – while beer is far less commonly associated with the religious world.

We blame the industry for this… It used to be that when we wrapped up our Weekend Picks on Friday, we could coast through the weekend. There was little need to check in for updates – things were pretty much done. But clearly all that’s changed. So here’s some of what’s happened in the world of craft beer while you were enjoying yourselves.

Beer is Terrifying: A Craft Halloween

It may be just me, but I honestly believe that Halloween is the best holiday. Seriously, I love it so much that my wife and I celebrate our anniversary on that day. Again, totally serious. 

As we got close to the end of October, it became obvious to me that we needed to have a discussion about the real things that go bump in the night. The call went out to the team: “What should we be drinking this All Hallow’s Eve?” The answers were terrifying.

Three Monsters that Would Greatly Benefit from Craft Beer

Halloween has come to be my favorite holiday of the year. I adore old crappy horror movies, not because I want to scream like a 12-year-old girl and get dabbles of urine in my shorts like some people, but because I think they’re hilarious. After recently watching The Monster Squad (which is a shittier version of The Goonies but with monsters), I began to think that some monsters have it rough. I’m sure if I had to sleep in a wooden coffin during the day, I would want to bite some necks too (I needs me my Tempur-Pedic mattress pad!). I wondered if there is one thing that would make these monsters’ lives a little better, and of course, craft beer was my answer.
