Our first beer this Advent is from the great state of Wisconsin. In fact, this year’s Beer Advent features 13 beers from the Badger state. Talk about keepin’ it local (for us Wisconsin participants I guess). Local-ness is what Door County Brewing Co is all about. Door County Brewing is a family owned craft brewery founded in 2012. They source as many ingredients as possible from Door County and other parts of Wisconsin to produce beers based on local resources, local influences, and local heritage. Door County Brewing has a slogan which says, “Drink in the local”.
I think that Little Sister Wit will be a good start to our Beer Advent. It is brewed with equal parts Belgian Pilsener malt and wheat, and spiced with coriander and orange peel. It’s easy drinking, yet intriguing.
As you begin the Beer Advent journey, think about the Door County Brewing Co. slogan: “Drink In The Local”
Relish the local-ness of the beer tonight, but as you do, also relish in the truth that Jesus became local to us. He came, as a baby, born in a manger. He came to live and dwell among men. Love came down at Christmas. That is what we anticipate this Advent season. It’s more than enjoying a good beer…it’s anticipating Jesus becoming local for us! What a mystery! What a gift!
