Augustiner Lagerbier Hell 500ml - Case of 12
About this deal
I'm proud to work with the best independent breweries for who making great beers is their guiding principle. I want to sell beer that the brewers have used their imagination and craft for, and chosen the best ingredients to make the best beers they can bursting with flavour and innovation. What you need to know: The classic Munich beer: clear, golden, bottom-fermented, with a dense head. Although it is omnipresent these days and is said to be the most traditional Munich beer, it is relatively young. It was only introduced here at the end of the 19th century and soon won the hearts of the beer-loving citizens of Munich. And Christians in just about every branch of Christianity revere Augustine of Hippo as one of the most important people in the entire history of their religion. I hope I’ve shown you that Hell has a distinct genealogy. The Hell of Augustine would have been unintelligible to whoever wrote the Gospel of Mark, just as a modern evangelical Christian’s idea of Hell, I’m sure, would likely have been unthinkably strange and theologically nonsensical to Augustine. Surely, the lightest of all punishments will be laid on those who have added no further sin to that originally contracted. Among the rest, who have added further Sins to that one, they will suffer a damnation somewhat more tolerable in proportion to the lesser degree of their iniquity.
And Augustine, in his theology, tried very hard to answer the Problem of Evil. He went in a direction modern Christians will find quite familiar: he blamed the existence of evil on humans’ free will. Previous theologians like Irenaeus and Origen (we talked about him a lot here) tried to argue that without exposure to evil, humans couldn’t develop correctly. Christians’ ideas about Hell change all the time. They always will. No Christian will ever be able to convince any other Christian that their ideas about Hell are flat-out wrong, either. It’s like having 2000 years to tell the scariest horror story ever created. I bet anybody could do the same with that amount of time and that many helpers along the way! Oh sure, Augustine thought Hell involved flames. Of course. He thought the New Testament’s description of “flames” was literally true, though the flames weren’t quite like earthly ones (nor would the people tortured have fleshly bodies like everyone has in life). His ideas sound a lot like the “ secret fire” we traced in previous Christian leaders’ writing. For us, Augustiner Helles is the archetype and one that has inspired our entire lager program,” says Adams. “That said, the most memorable beers have less to do with the beer itself and more to do with the environment – a Maß of Helles outside at Klosterbrauerei Andechs is an unforgettable and beautiful experience.”NEXT UP: The weird and terrible things that happen because bad people keep assuming that they’re doing bad things in private. Then, we’ll be winding down our Journey into Hell. See you tomorrow!
Much later, someone summarized Augustine’s position as “unbaptized infants damned, but most lightly.” To me, that sounds like being slightly pregnant. Regardless, it’s still an absolutely morally-repugnant idea. It is imported into USA by Global Village Imports, LLC. of King of Prussia, PA. Since distribution is very limited, only Augustiner Edelstoff and Maximator are available. Where to drink it: Anywhere hip. In bars with a young crowd, by the Isar, after buying it from a well-appointed kiosk, at vernissages and in party pizzerias. Whether it's the Lager Hell, the classic Pils, or the celebratory Oktoberfest brew created for the festival each year, an Augustiner beer is an exercise in quality and tradition. So here's to the next 500 years. In 1996, Edith Haberland Wagner, the last of the Wagner dynasty, bequeathed her share in the brewery ownership to the Edith Haberland Wagner Foundation, and the foundation continues to hold 51% of the shares of the brewery to this day.
This is exactly what we ought to expect to happen when a Christian takes their doctrinal beliefs to their logical conclusions. Al Mohler showed us the same horrific inflexibility when he got presented with his idolized Bible’s very obvious approval of slavery. What Augustine Thought Hell Was Like.
