I couldn’t resist putting this in. OK, we’re jealous. When did you last hear of Baptist Bitter? Or Pentecostal Pilsener? Or even Lutheran Lager? Like, never. So if you’re in search of a truly divine beer, you’ll have to cross the denominational divides big time, and head off to He’brew for “the best (and only) Jewish beer in America”.
He’brew, “the chosen beer”, offers four different brews. There’s Genesis Ale; there’s Messiah Bold (“the beer you’ve been waiting for”, ha ha); there’s Genesis 10:10 (brewed with pomegranate juice); there’s Monumental Jewbelation, and there’s even a beer in celebration of Jewish comedian Lenny Bruce. “This Chanukah, candles won’t be the only thing getting lit!” says one of the brewery’s many inspired sales blurbs.

I wonder if they got the inspiration from an Antipodean pastor known to brew his own beer (called John’s Ale) beneath the manse, next to the church in which he Compelled sinners to partake not of the sinful grape. According the legend, this esteemed man of the cloth took a bit of time to learn Hebrew and discovered an error in interpretation of John 8:7, which should read:
Let he who is without sin among you, let him quaff the first batch.
