Beer Congregational Church

When I first encountered the Beer Congregational Church, I thought it was a clever homage to the beer gods and their followers, the product of a deft hand with access to photoshop software, but this is not the case. The Beer Congregational Church is a very real church located in the town of Beer, a very real-life coastal village in south-west England. According to wiki, the town of Beer takes its name from the Anglo-Saxon word "bearu," which refers to the abundance of trees in the region. The latest census counts 1381 inhabitants in the town of Beer.
