We’re just two weeks out from the Biblical Brew Off. Team Moses and Team Jesus are all tied up going into this third year of competition. Just when things seemed set for the showdown a wildcard appeared. Both Rodeph Shalom and St Tim’s count many women among the beer geeks at our congregations. No longer content to leave the brewing to the guys, they joined forces to form Team Eve.
In early April, under the expert guidance of Nancy Rigberg, they gathered at St. Tim’s to brew a saison, the name of which is so secret that even yours truly doesn’t know it yet.
Not only will their presence liven up the competition, it is fully in keeping with the ancient tradition that brewing was solely a feminine art. Even today among some of the indigenous peoples, it is women along who brew the chicha since it is common knowledge even allowing a man to walk into the brew house will spoil the beer.
A big thank you to Nancy for her expertise and to Brian Biggs for creating the logo.
The only way to taste their beer is to join us at the Brew Off on May 7th at Rodeph Shalom. Advance tickets are just $25 ($35 at the door). Click here to get yours now!
