You can become an ordained minister, instantly, online, at this website. The Church of Beer is totally non-denominational, interfaith and welcomes all religions. After you fill out the ordination form, you will receive a pop-up instant credential, which serves as your receipt of your ordination. Print it immediately.
As a CoB (Church of Beer) minister, you can't officiate wedding ceremonies, or funerals, or baptisms, or house blessings, etc. But you can start your own ministry spreading the word of holy lager. The Church of Beer is interfaith and non-denominational.
While you don't have to purchase anything from the CoB to gain the legal benefits and entitlements [mainly because there are none], we do offer a wide variety of materials to assist you in your ministry and/or business.
With the help of some of our devout followers, we offer the acclaimed teaching about the holy drink in our Ministry In A Glass.
We offer other services as well like the Absolution of Sins and Granting of Plenary Indulgence.
We ask only that you promote the freedom of religion and do that which is right. It is up to the individual to determine what is right as long as it does not infringe on the rights of others and is within the law. That is as close to the Golden Rule as one can come.
