Did you know that there is a long history with Christianity and beer?  Throughout the ages the church has been associated with the industrialisation of beer brewing in its abbeys and monasteries; vicars and godly businessmen such as Reverend James or Arthur Guinness renowned for making ales and ethical employment; and a healthy list of patron saints dedicated to the art of brewing – and drinking – ale.  Here at Emmanuales, we see ourselves as a link in a long, forgotten chain of Jesus-people with a passion for crafting beer.  We’re not out to force religion down people’s throats – just beer!  Which is why we’re celebrating our heritage with a range of special beers, The Gospale According to…

Highlighting some of the world’s most beloved hops, The Gospale According to… contains one variety of hop, meaning you’ll experience and appreciate the aromas, flavours and nuances of each breed in our three different beers: The Gospale According to… Sister Citra, The Monastic Order of Mosaic and Saint Centennial.

This year, we are aiming to upscale production, meaning for the first time we’ll be able to offer more bottles than ever before, as well as a range of cask/keg.  If you are a landlord and want to stock this exciting new brand in your venue, then contact Nick at info@emmanuales.co.uk

Finally, if you’re a craft beer fan, a landlord, a retailer, or you’re still awaiting for you friend to arrive and are looking through this magazine because you’re bored and they’re late; take five minutes to fill in our survey at www.emmanuales.co.uk and you could be in with a chance to win an exclusive brew day us; help shape the beer, discover the hops, and brew unto others as you’d have them brew unto you!

Blessings upon you and your camels.
