Post 1600 - MNSpeak Breaks My Heart

Damn it. Damn it. ARGH. I won't let contractors put their fish-enhanced signs in my yard to promote their business, and now MNSpeak informs me I have to picture a virtual fish on every bottle of Summit that I drink. I didn't realize beer contests had anything to do with secular vs. non-secular, but now, my drinking has to consider that possibility because someone has raised the spectre that my beer-drinking money is going to things I don't support. Despite the fact that bock beer has always been used to tide monks through their fasting periods, beer has been non-denominational and non-religious. Actually, I don't know that for sure...maybe millions of people have died in religious wars over beer and I just don't know about it, but I've always assumed beer as a uniter, not a divider. I already refuse to patronize Blockbuster because they have religious issues revovling around renting me an NC-17 movie (I don't care to see an NC-17 movie, and Marlon Brandon asking for butter in his ass gives me a feeling that can best be described as stomach bombing. But I should have the opportunity - it's not your decision). And now I have to worry about my beer. IT'S BEER. If anyone should have a problem at all with beer, it should be me with my Methodist heritage. She Says, don't out Fat Tire. I don't want to know about it.

Title: Let us now praise Catholic Beer
Specifically, Summit: If you accept nominations, I would like to nominate beers from the Summit Brewing Co. of Minneapolis.The Chairman of the Board is as Catholic, and as Pro-Life going back many years, as they come (well, he is a convert) and their beers are well rated in secular contests.

Booo. Nothing like a religious organization posing as a sinful product. BTW: I saw this and thought of you:

Glad they're going to make some money off us!
