When Fendog began working for the church, Trenchfoot was keen to disciple him in the same manner as the apostle Paul with the Thessalonians – sharing not only the gospel of God, but his life as well.
Hence, it wasn’t long before he had inspired Fendog to follow in his footsteps and make his own wine. The proliferation of equipment, the ever increasing size of each batch, and the branching out into beer and liqueurs were merely inevitable.
Brewing has a long heritage in the Christian tradition with many a monk turning his hand to a spot of beer or wine making. And for centuries, Christian men have gathered to drink good beer and discuss theology. Here in Oxford, the likes of C.S. Lewis and J.R.R. Tolkien regularly gathered at the Eagle & Child to do just that.
We like to think we are keeping this fine tradition alive.
