There was an interesting AP story by Eric Gorski, the Religion Correspondent for the Associated Press, giving his take on the Great American Beer Festival, which from the article it sounds like he attended. The article is called Finding God at a Beer Festival. It’s nice to see a positive spin from the religious community for a change.
The article states: “Without question, unholy excess is in evidence anytime 18,000 gallons (68,135 liters) of alcohol is served to 46,000 people over three days.”
“Unholy excess”? This works out to just over a pint of beer for any one customer on any day – at a beer festival.
Oh, the humanity.
