BLESSED ARE THE THIRSTY
At Back Pew Brewing, our whole branding schtick is based on the fact that we brew in an old church building. And though we may not be a bunch of altar boys, we’re inspired by the themes and iconography found within religion.
But this fall, we have a truly unique opportunity…
JOIN US AT THE CHURCH ON SUNDAY NOVEMBER 6th AT 4:00PM
for an event we’re calling
ALL SAINTS (AND SINNERS) DAY:
AN EVENING OF BLESSING, BREWS, AND BLUEGRASS.
The Reverend Sean Steele from St. Isidore Episcopal Community will be at the brewery performing a service to bless the water we use to make all our brews, and bluegrass band Highway 75 will perform during the service and once we open up the taps. Plus, our brewmaster will be creating a limited-edition beer that is both a Saint AND a Sinner. Want a taste? You’ve got to come see us on Sunday.
- You DO NOT have to be religious to come and hang with us. St. Isidore is a truly open congregation that welcomes skeptics, people of other faiths, and even straight up atheists.
- This WILL be a fully legitimate religious service, but it will be laid back, and no one will try to convert you or force you to take communion…we’re just going to hear a message, listen to music, eat, and drink.
- The service starts at 4:00pm, then we’ll open up the taps and the food trucks, and Highway 75 will jam out as the sun goes down.
The craft beer culture is like religion in a lot of ways…it’s all about bringing people of different types and taste together, and that’s our goal with this event. In fact, it was the Apostle Matthew who said:
“Then the king will say to those at his right hand, ‘Come, you that are blessed by my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world; for I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me.”
...we hear you, Matt.
