  • Brewing Theology - 1st & 3rd Thursdays, 6pm

    1st & 3rd Thursdays - 6pm


    For centuries, sometimes with a beer in hand, men and women have gathered to try to understand God and God's relationship to the world by steeping, boiling and soaking their own ideas, experiences and practices into a theological brew.


    Join hosts Rev. Tom Berry of Bethany Presbyterian Church and Rev. Rich Fuss of Newman United Methodist Church as we gather at Climate City Brewing Company (509 SW  G St.) to brew some theology!


    Brewing Theology offers an opportunity to explore, question and share as we strive to understand God and God's relationship to the world. All ideas, experiences and practices are welcome to be a part of this theological brew. We don't have to agree on everything, but respectful dialog is expected.
