Myth has it that monks in Hoegaarden, Belgium were the first to discover the unique recipe for wheat beer way back in 1445.  A lot has gone into Hoegaarden’s brewing methods since the 1500’s but one thing is certain: over 500 years of hard work went into making this beer.  It features the aroma of orange peel, coriander, and herbs with a slightly sweet and sour taste.  Sit back and enjoy this classic from Belgium!


Advent Reading: Luke 2:1-7  Birth of Jesus Christ

In those days a decree went out from Caesar Augustus that all the world should be registered.
2 This was the first registration when Quirinius was governor of Syria.
3 And all went to be registered, each to his own town.
4 And Joseph also went up from Galilee, from the town of Nazareth, to Judea, to the city of David, which is called Bethlehem, because he was of the house and lineage of David,
5 to be registered with Mary, his betrothed, who was with child.
6 And while they were there, the time came for her to give birth.
7 And she gave birth to her firstborn son and wrapped him in swaddling cloths and laid him in a manger, because there was no place for them in the inn.
(Luk 2:1-7 ESV)
