Ever wonder what happens when a priest blesses beer?
Father Jeff Barnish on Thursday (Jan. 25) blessed 22-ounce bottles of the new Augustine Ale at Sibling Revelry Brewing in Westlake.
The beer was created to help celebrate and serve as a fundraiser for the 10th anniversary of Angels on the Avenue, a group that assists the St. Augustine Health Ministries in Cleveland. Angels regularly holds beer-related fundraisers. The bottles sold for $10.
"I'm almost through my first so it's still legitimate, I'm not drunk yet," Barnish, who serves at nearby St. Bernadette Parish, joked as he began the blessing.
He also read from the Bible. You can watch his full blessing in the video above.
