The article I submitted went beyond St. Brigid and provided, if I say so myself, an interesting retrospective of the Catholic Church's relationship with beer — from brewing monks to the patron Saints of brewing. Unfortunately, the print edition does not have an online version so I am unable to link to the article. Hopefully some blog readers are also subscribers.
The Church has a long and interesting relationship with my favorite brewed beverage so it was a fun article to research and write. I even received a small honorarium that will go towards the beer fund!
