Default Did jesus drink beer

During the time of Jesus' life beer was common throughout the Middle East. We know that alcohol was much safer to drink then water and that Jesus did drink wine. The bible refers to "strong drink" which was more often then not beer. Wine was normally referred to as "fermented drink." What is your take?
If this is true what type of beer would you think Jesus would enjoy?

Ohh but he'd drink some trailer trash home made wine?
I think he'd enjoy some Ta Henket from Dogfish

I get asked this question from time to time since I'm a preacher and a home brewer. I certainly don't claim to be much of a bible scholar though.


I have always loved that the first miracle recorded in the Book of John is Jesus making wine. Lots of it. At least 120 gallons of it. And it was awesome. And it was after people had been drinking.

While the English translation doesn't mention beer specifically in the Bible, it is hard to ignore historical fact that beer was around during that time and in that region. Also, since Jesus spent a lot of time in places that most "religious" people wouldn't go, chances are there was beer around. Either way, beer or wine, it's obvious that Jesus was ok with alcohol. Alcohol in and of itself is amoral.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but back in the day, Hops weren't used in beer because folks didn't know how awesome they were. Also, the fermented greatness was consumed shortly after it was created, which would provide a not high abv, and certainly a not very clear beverage. (I once heard people used the foam from beer to make their bread rise). Liquid bread, if you will. So... the beer we're all used to, no matter the type, is probably not what our ancestors consumed. Can anyone more else provide more details?

I don't know about all that, but New Acronym!

WWJD!

That is what I will ask myself every time I have to decide what to get. I think more often than not it will be IPA.
