“This isn’t just a brew pub, it’s a church”

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (BP)–“How about beer with your Bible?”
That’s the question NBC’s “Today” show host Campbell Brown asked March 4 on national television to introduce a report titled “Beer and Bibles: New Churches Lure Young Members.”
… The “church” in reality is the Schlafly Bottleworks where The Journey reaches out to younger adults who might not consider going to a traditional church setting.
…“Followers say they may come for the beer, but they stay for the Bible,” London said. “And back at the brew pub, it’s about saving souls, one beer at a time.”
Wow! It’s enough to make me convert.
Jay Brooks over at Brookston Beer Bulletin, however, cites a study that gives much different response to beer and religion.
