And then into a garden.
The Reverend Andrew O’Connor of Holy Family Church in the Bronx is a fan of craft beer. He recently met up with the brewers at Bronx Brewery and a partnership was launched. The brewery supplied 20 hop starter plants for the Priest who will grow them in his rectory garden. The brewery will use the fresh hops in its beer.
Says Father O'Connor, "There’s a lot more to be done with beer. It has immediate satisfaction. And the religious connotation is wonderful, too."
