Sean Dailey took over my role as editor at Gilbert Magazine about ten years ago. I got to know him a bit during the transition and during a GKC conference. He’s a good guy, passionate for the faith, for GKC, for fantasy football . . .
and for drinking.
The latter passion is on display in this nifty little piece: The Lost Art of Catholic Drinking. I don’t believe he accurately portrays the “Protestant” version of drinking (for starters, I don’t think there is such a thing), but his characterization of Catholic drinking is accurate enough. Excerpt:

Catholic drinking is . . . the way to engage in an ancient activity enjoyed by everyone from peasants to emperors to Jesus Himself. And again, it is not just about quantity. In fact, I think the chief element is conviviality. When friends get together for a drink, it may be to celebrate, or it may be to mourn. But it should always be to enjoy one another’s company. (Yes, there is a time and place for a solitary beer, but that is the exception.)
