"But around the time of the move, Catholic Diocese of Fort Worth Bishop Michael Olson instructed Father Jeff not to brew beer anymore, according to a source who asked to remain anonymous because she is a parishoner in the diocese. Poirot confirmed he had been told to stop brewing, but wouldn’t comment much further, other than saying, “It was a pretty short conversation. [Olson] holds all the cards in that relationship.”

You'd think the Bishop/The Church would be more encouraging when a Priest is making the news for a positive reason...

I'd like to know at what point the Catholic Church began to distance itself from beer or drinking.

What a great guy Father Jeff is. It's a terrible example of missplaced priorities. They've got bigger fish to fry to get their house in order.

Default Since when do catholics not drink?

Disappointing that Bishop took this stance. Hope there are other factors compelling the Bishop to take this stance and not just a he wants to demonstrate he has power.

Insane.

I don't know of any monastery in Germany that doesn't make beer or schnapps.
