Brewery: 3 Floyds Brewing Co.
Location: Munster, IN
Style: American Session Ale ABV: 5.5%
Info on Beer/Brewery: Cannot go wrong with a beer called “Yum Yum”! And in my opinion it lives up to its name. It is refreshing to the point of deliciousness. Yum Yum carries a malt backbone that accompanies an explosive hop profile. Three Floyds Brewing started in 1996 when two brothers and their father—armed with only a few hundred dollars, a five-barrel Frankenstein wok-burner-fired brew kettle, repurposed open Swiss cheese fermenters and an old Canfield’s Cola tank, began brewing ”It’s Not Normal”ales and lagers. Three Floyds uses sound techniques, the finest ingredients, and innovation to craft ‘not normal’ and memorable beers. Tonight’s offering is one of those ‘Not Normal’ ales. They also have incredible artwork on their bottles.
Cheers to YUM YUM!
Advent Reflection: Matthew 2:10-11
10 When they saw the star, they rejoiced exceedingly with great joy.
11 And going into the house they saw the child with Mary his mother, and they fell down and worshiped him. Then, opening their treasures, they offered him gifts, gold and frankincense and myrrh.
The gifts and worship of the wise men from the east point forward to the inclusion of Gentiles among God’s people. The Jews at that time were primarily the ones expecting the Messiah to deliver and restore the Jewish nation while judging, and subduing all others by force. The worship of the wise men pictures the submission of foreign nations without military action. It portrays the nations inclusion within the scope of God’s kingdom and within God’s grand STORY. The birth of Jesus and the kingdom of this King is NOT limited to Israel. It is for everybody! And that is worth drinking something called “Yum Yum”.
Cheers and AMEN!
