This Texas church’s anti-craft beer ad seriously backfired

“Craft beer is the devil’s craft.”

Well, at least according to one church in the Texas Panhandle.

The Anchor of Hope Baptist Church in Canyon, Texas ran an ad in The Canyon News last week denouncing craft beer. The ad cited no less than 10 Bible verses condemning “booze” and claiming that Jesus and the Disciples drank grape juice, not wine, with a line at the bottom questioning, “Will we sell the youth of Canyon for the revenues of booze?”

One local bar says yes. The Imperial Taproom in Canyon posted a photo of the ad on their Facebook page on Oct. 7, offering a dollar off a bar tab for anyone who brought a copy of the ad into the taproom.

The church, which firmly “stands against booze,” according to the ad, probably didn’t see this coming.
