by Jacob Cates I’m not a Lutheran. Not that I have anything against Lutherans, but I go to Mars Hill Church and we just aren’t Lutherans. But Martin Luther freaking rocks and we all know it. Obviously we love Jesus. TheBeerean.com cites Jesus and the rest of the Bible tirelessly because Jesus rocks harder than Luther ever could, and Luther [...]
This has got to be one of my favorite beer infographics to date. I like it so much, you can see a copy of it on the wall of my beer fridge every week on Beer Tip of the Week. This infographic gives you a breakdown of the different styles of beer and their family tree. It also gives [...]
In all honesty, I didn’t realize that this would be theBeerean’s 100th post when I sat down to write. I had planned on writing some thoughts about the drinks I shared with a lost coworker last week (maybe next week). But as I opened WordPress, I couldn’t help but see that we were setting at 99 posts. So what does [...]
“Beer is proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy.” – Benjamin Franklin (kind of) If you get around Christian beer drinkers long enough, someone is bound to bring up the epic quote from Benjamin Franklin above. So it was only a matter of time before I brought it up on theBeerean.com, and what better day than [...]
I don’t know exactly how to say this…I’m getting tired of the smug looks, the condescending tones, the holier-than-thou words, and the Bible gymnastics I get when people tell me about their convictions. This is mostly when someone tells me that they feel convicted to not drink alcohol. Let me clear the air right now…if you are convicted by the Holy Spirit [...]
What is ABV? I might be a little weird, but I like to read beer labels. It’s amazing how much information can be found on the side of a bottle of beer. I love to read how brewers like to describe their beer. Some like to be serious, some like to be humorous, and some read like your drinking a [...]
[vimeo]http://vimeo.com/19380467[/vimeo] Now You Can Call it a Come Back! from Greg Qualls on Vimeo. I know a few months ago I told you to not a call my return to theBeerean a come back…well things change. I’m going to officially call this a come back. Tell your family. Tell your friends. Tell your coworkers. Even tell that creepy guy jogs [...]
The Wedding at Cana On the third day there was a wedding at Cana in Galilee, and the mother of Jesus was there. Jesus also was invited to the wedding with his disciples. When the wine ran out, the mother of Jesus said to him, “They have no wine.” And Jesus said to her, “Woman, what does this have to [...]
Last week I wrote about saying the phrase, “I need a beer.” Then a few days ago, I came across this passage in my morning reading. Who has woe? Who has sorrow? Who has strife? Who has complaining? Who has wounds without cause? Who has redness of eyes? Those who tarry long over wine; those who go to [...]
For all you social media fanatics out there, I decided to create a Facebook page for theBeerean.com. So now all the tens of Christians that read this blog have a place to be social on the interwebs. Head on over and become a fan…or like it…or whatever Facebook is calling it this week.
What are hops? You hear about them all the time in the world of beer. You hear about beers that have double the hops. There are even tripple hop beers now too. It’s one of the basic ingredients of beer, but it seems that everyone assumes that you know what a hop is. Hops are actually the female flower cluster [...]
So how do start a blog up again? What should your first “real” post be about? I started theBeerean.com on April 20th, 2008 with one simple thought in mind. There needs to be a blog for Christians who like beer. My ultimate hope with the blog would be that:
It has been almost a year-and-a-half since my last post on theBeerean.com. Jesus has been good to me in this time though. I’ve done a lot and grown a lot as a Christian, husband, father, and friend. But in all that time, don’t think that I ever forgot about theBeerean.com.
I’ve kept the site up and watched to see what w
Over the past few months it has been really cool to see people find theBeerean.com. Everyone has gotten here through various avenues such as twitter, my comments on other sites, some link love from other bloggers, ect. But I have started to get a large increase of people coming hear from search results (I must have some mad SEO skillz). [...]
Ok so as I let you know on Tuesday (wait that would be yesterday….man my days are getting long), we are no longer the first and only blog focusing on Christians who love beer (and I’m glad).Â In fact we never were.Â There have been other blogs around before we came on the scene.Â And I’m happy about this. But [...]
