True- hops were not used so if your a Reinheitsgebot brewer then he is not drink beer... But grain fermented beverages were abundant and their are many available today. Some examples could be found made by dogfish, anchorsteam, and a few other companies...

Imagine if you will, Jesus sitting in a hut with a number of other of other men, a frothy pot of fermented grains on the floor in front of them and each sipping it through their long straws...

Assuming that Jesus was God incarnate and that He, like the Father, was omnipotent, and that the story of the wedding in Caanan was true and He did, in fact, turn water into wine, then you have to believe that, in His own time, He was turning water into marvelous, spectacular barleywines, double IPAs, and Russian Imperial Stouts (even though Catherine the Great would not commission the Russian Imperial Stout for 1700 more years) which, as we all know, are far superior to any wine. In sum, Jesus, if he had a brain in his head, would have been the ultimate homebrewer. I'm out.

I would have to think that Jesus wouldn't just "turn" water into beer because most of the passion and love that we hold as brewers is in the brewing of beer. Either way, I could see a joyous Jesus holding a tankard full of a full stout and sporting a beer foam mustache!

I remember one docco I watch which went to say pretty much that. The original stories were Jesus turning water into a fermented beverage... then when they were translated wine was choosen as it was the drink of choice for the affluent at then time of translation. I mean Jesus wouldn't be slumming it...

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.

There's a polka out there that clears it up. "In heaven there is no beer. That's why we drink it here. "

Not if you convert to pastafarianism.
