On October 31st, 1517 Martin Luther nailed 95 theses against the church door in Wittenburg. Little did he know at the time his hammer would create waves that would crash through Europe, America, and today to the whole world. The power of the gospel changed everything we know. The concept of marrying for love rather than social standing, the ideas of humanism, separation of church & state, America itself, economic prosperity, encouraged literacy, expansion of the role of women and many other reforms are whitecaps of when Luther's pebble dropped into the ocean.Join Michael Horton and Friends of the INN as we celebrate the 500th anniversary of the Reformation. Toby Kurth of Christ Church SF and guests will present some of the theological contributions from some of the cities and figures that the Reformation took a hold of, and offer up some beer pairings that would go well with those contributions. If time permits, we can have a Q & A or discussion for those interested in more information. Luther and Calvin both enjoyed beer and wine. Luther himself was a brewer and made sure his stein was full while preparing sermons. Calvin enjoyed tasting the local brew whenever he traveled. The Beer Hall has been gracious enough to host us with their wide selection of craft beers curated from around the globe. Perhaps a Le Courtage to go with Calvin & Geneva, or a Woodfour/Bohemia for John Huss of Bohemian Prague.
Your ticket will purchase your flight of select beers and we should have plenty on hand to go along with hor d'oeuvres. All net proceeds will go to furthering advance the gospel through our friends at White Horse Inn, dedicated to helping people know what they believe and why they believe it.
