St. Luke

St. Luke

Feastday: October 18 | Patron of Physicians/Surgeons and Brewers

Saint Luke (first century) is widely regarded as a patron saint of brewers although there is no obvious reason. Possible connections include his being a physician and knowing that the beer of the time was healthier than the water of the time , and his ability to mix various herbs together for medicines just as they were mixed for beer.
