So you may have heard that Barren Hill Tavern and Brewery is ready to release their newest holiday beer: Gingerbread Jesus.
And if you haven’t – yup, it’s called Gingerbread Jesus. And he’s got all his facial hair and even a little wreath on his head.
A Belgian Dubbel brewed with molasses, ginger, cinnamon and nutmeg, Gingerbread Jesus has an interesting background. It was named for the collaboration with Reverend Kirk Berlenbach of Roxborough’s St. Timothy’s Episcopal Church and the brewery to create the holiday beer.
An avid home brewer, Father Kirk is part of the Franklin Society Homebrew Club and has his own blog, So This Priest Walks Into a Bar... Basically, he knows his stuff.
