Beer Blessing!

I have no idea where I should post this, so I’m going with my usualy stomping ground here.:wink:

I found this while looking for traditions for the 12 days of Christmas. This was found linked through related new year traditions.

From this site:

Beer Blessing
From the *Rituale Romanum *(no 58)
Bene+dic, Domine, creaturam istam cerevisae, quam ex adipe frumenti producere dignatus es: ut sit remedium salutare humano generi: et praesta per invocationem nominis tui sancti, ut, quicumque ex ea biberint, sanitatem corporis, et animae tutelam percipiant. Per Christum Dominum nostrum. Amen

Bless, O Lord, this creature beer, that Thou hast been pleased to bring forth from the sweetness of the grain: that it might be a salutary remedy for the human race: and grant by the invocation of Thy holy name, that, whosoever drinks of it may obtain health of body and a sure safeguard for the soul. Through Christ our Lord. Amen.

(Translation by Fr. Ephraem Chifley, O.P.)

Nice, I think Im going to make a plaque and hang it next to the fridge (for my wife’s sake).

Awesome! My husband has a new batch to bottle; this is perfect timing. :slight_smile:

I work in a brewery and this is definately going up on the wall.

I’ll drink to that!:smiley:

You just solved my last gift idea - we do an adult gag gift exchange in my family. I’m going to frame this poem and wrap it with a 12 pack!
