Beer Advent Day 24: Even More Jesus

Brewery: Evil Twin Brewing

Location:  NY

Style:  Imperial Stout  ABV:  12%

Info on beer/brewery: Evil Twin Brewing is a gypsy brewing company.  It is called that because the owner and brewer Jeppe Jarnit-Bjergso (originally from Denmark) does not own his own brewery.  He rents out breweries from friends, brings his recipes, brews the beer in their facility, they bottle it, and he labels it and sells it.  All of Evil Twin Brewing’s beers are exclusively hand picked to please you with beer that is, funky, extreme and rare. Maybe not the easiest way, but certainly the most fun!!

Our last beer this Beer Advent is aptly called “Even More Jesus”.  It is an imperial stout that is brewed in Westbrook Brewing Co. in Mt. Pleasant, South Carolina.  Overwhelming aromas of chocolate, coffee, dark fruits and muscovado sugar are featured in this stout.  With the high ABV make sure you sit down next to your Christmas tree and sip.

Cheers!

Advent Reflection:  I’ve been waiting 24 days to write these lyrics to a wonderful Advent Hymn.

Come Thou Long Expected Jesus

Come, Thou long expected Jesus
Born to set Thy people free;
From our fears and sins release us,
Let us find our rest in Thee.
Israel’s strength and consolation,
Hope of all the earth Thou art;
Dear desire of every nation,
Joy of every longing heart.

Born Thy people to deliver,
Born a child and yet a King,
Born to reign in us forever,
Now Thy gracious kingdom bring.
By Thine own eternal Spirit
Rule in all our hearts alone;
By Thine all sufficient merit,
Raise us to Thy glorious throne.
