More tap or more theology?

For those of you that want a little more tap with your theology, I have two offerings:

1. Stone's Double Bastard Ale. This beer is not only fun to order ("Make mine a Double Bastard, please!") but it is also close to brewing perfection. If you don't believe me, check out the rating on ratebeer.com - a mere 100%. It is related to the other wonderful Stone product, the Arrogant Bastard (another fun one to order) which is Stone's hop happy IPA. Hops make a beer bitter or leave that dry tangy feeling in your mouth. I personally love hops. The Double Bastard is super hoped but instead of making your mouth pucker, the overdose of hops gives the beer a slightly sweet taste with a smooth hoppy finish.

2. Bells Hop Slam. Bells is another brewery that is not afraid of the hops. This one is smooth but plenty hoppy.

Both of these are rich in flavor and contain more alcohol than your usual beer. For those reasons, I'd suggest drinking it slowly and sticking to just one an evening.


For those that want a little more theology with your tap, here is an offering from Rumi:

The wine of divine grace is limitless:
All limits come only from the faults of the cup.
Moonlight floods the whole sky from horizon to horizon;
How much it can fill your room depends on its windows.
Grant a great dignity, my friend, to the cup of your life;
Love has designed it to hold His eternal wine.
