Anyone know why we were late to dinner at our friend's house today?

Because we had to stop at 2 East Main Street to find out how much the church was on the market for. For what, you ask?

D: There's our brew pub.
K: No way. You think the church is zoned to be turned into a brew pub?
D: Maybe.
K: What if they don't want us selling beer in a church?
D: We could have "Communion Hour" in lieu of happy hour. Half-price specials.
K: That is so wrong, on so many levels.
D: But there is no parking. We'd have to work out a deal with the church next door to park in their lot.
K: Oh, that's gonna happen.

But a bloody brilliant idea. I'm pissed he came up with it instead of me.

It was only $299,000. I'm thinking we could just live in it if the whole brewery thing doesn't work out (humming "nearer my Lord to thee).

Don't you just HATE it when they come up with a good idea before you do???

Drive me nuts! (But it does sounds like a deal, doesn't it?)

Wow ... that's awesome! I've seen shows on TV where they've turned old churches into homes, restaurants, pubs, etc... so go for it!

You’ll have to come up with a diverse line of brews, like Bethlehem Black & Tan, St. Peter’s Port, Lent Lager and Lager Light, Pentecostal Premium Ale, and maybe a Leviticus Light, which can be your low-carbohydrate brew for the Atkins people.

If you feel like rivaling the novelty beer market, you can offer a Pontius Pilate Port, which could be a heavily-carbonated brew that leaves a nasty aftertaste and a slight tingle in the hands and feet. You could also make Noah’s Light Ale, which would be watered-down and only sold in pairs.

Ooooh, I've ALWAYS wanted to live in a church! And such a good price!

But a brewery is a darn good idea...
