Most Americans won’t recognize the name, Katharina von Bora, but most Germans do. She was Martin Luther’s wife. The former nun was a phenomenal micro-brewer according to her biographers and her signature beers remain popular to this day in Bavaria.
Which probably has little to do with South Lake, a new Lutheran church plant, that holds some of its mid-week sessions at a craft beer house on the League City Parkway. Except, perhaps for the fact that both Luther and these Lutherans, led by the Rev. Rob Bailey, have a thing for a good tavern and a European-style dark ale.
