I came across this interesting Aramaic word in Luke:
"For he will be great in the sight of the Lord. He must never drink wine or strong drink [σικερα]; even before his birth he will be filled with the Holy Spirit." (Luke 1:15)In Aramaic sikera or שכרא means "beer" and it derives from the Akkadian shikaru meaning fermented barley water, i.e. beer.
This means that Saint John the Baptist never enjoyed a glass of wine or even a beer. A small price to pay for being the greatest man "born of women" (cf. Luke 7:28).
So if you start up a micro-brewery, don't name it after this holy prophet, he has little experience in the craft or pleasure of beer.
St. John the Baptist, pray for us.
