From an article sent in by a friend of MNB: “Luther?s wife Catherine was a skilled brewer and his love letters to her when they were apart lamented his inability to drink her beer.” The entire article outlines Mars Hills Church’s stance on alcohol. I happen to agree with it. The article is friggin‘ sweet,
