Blog Slacker

Hey all,

Long time without a post so here's an update on catholicbeer brewing co.

As I am sure you are all aware, we served Batch #003 at Candace's birthday party, but we recently also released a batch of our #004 (St. Bernardus-style) and sweet Jesus blessed us mightily! It was highly improved by the extra time and I am so glad that we still have another 5 gallon keg of that batch still aging.. (I'd like to tap that one in about 4 months maybe).

We also included a limited release of about 12 bottles of our #005 (Oak Aged Yeti-style) and I think this was probably our most well-balanced beer yet. No discernible flaws other than that aging would give it that extra hint of sagacity.

But I also bear bad news... I checked in on the Brewery Sunday to work on some slight modifications that I plan on making (more to come on that later), and much to my chagrin I found MOLD.

And not just a few spots here and there... we had a forest of mold growing in the bottom of our kettle that was about 4 inches high. the was the slightest white powder on our hoses, handles, valves, mash tun... Holy Moley! The Lord giveth and the Lord taketh away. Between this and the mole incident I think our next brewther's night will necessitate a deep cleanse.

That's right catholicbeer... you need an enema!

More to come.. (I promise) and in the mean-time...

pour one for me.



  1. Hey, i found the perfect building for you, or at least whoever sells CatholicBeer in Cincinnati. It's a dilapidated brick church on the northern side of the Ohio River with a back patio that overlooks the river. Right now it looks like the tenant there is growing grapes on the back patio. It'd be the perfect spot for a micro-brewery.

    So if you wanna send some cronies out to purchase the building (you can probably buy it for $125,000)and set up shop on the bottom floor, you can turn the sanctuary into the restaurant/stage and the patio for nice weather dining. You'll make a killing. A catholic killing.

  2. Holy of Holy Crap!

    You dirt bastard teasing me like that! You should be ashamed of yourself... I can't move to Sin-cinatti.. $125k you say? well maybe for a little while..

    Is it really for sale?
