This post has been a little delayed, and for that I apologize. I broke fast this past Sunday, Palm Sunday, after my 40 days of fasting for Lent. The delay has been, in part, because I’m actually still doing interviews about the whole endeavor. Which is such an amazing thing. When I set out to do this, a part of it was trying to engage people in a dialogue about faith and spirituality. In all modesty, I was reasonably expecting to have my story heard by tens of thousands of people. That might sound like a lot, but at this point, that number is easily over a million. Maybe even millions. And while there is a part of me that gets a bit of a goofy grin thinking about that, the reality is, that was all heaven sent blessing.
I regularly describe myself as an "ardent supporter of beer", which pretty well sums it up. While I'm not working or busy being a husband and dad (okay, honestly, sometimes while I'm doing those things), I am drinking beer, attending events, visiting pubs, and thinking about beer. I work at Castro's Lounge, my local bar in the Beach, where I host beer events and take part in most things beer-related.
