Blessing of Beer (Latin+English)

Blessing of Beer (Latin+English)

The next time you crack a cold one, make it a blessed occasion!


Long after Catholic monasteries perfected the craft of alebrewing, a formal rite of blessing beer was at last included in Pope Paul V's 1614 Rituale Romanum (the traditional Catholic book of blessings). That blessing is reproduced here without change, in both Latin and English.


INCLUDED: You will receive a PDF download of three (3) full-color designs, ready to print in 4x6" size. One is the beer blessing in English, one in Latin with a serif font, and one in Latin with classical Gothic styling. Each one features a medieval manuscript detail of a bishop conferring the blessing of beer upon a cask of fermenting wheat.


This traditional Blessing of Beer can be conferred by any priest with the requisite faculties, and will look excellent framed in your kitchen, restaurant, or homebrew closet. (And if you need a good Catholic drinking song, we might recommend Hilaire Belloc's Song of the Pelagian Heresy.)
