Theology on Tap

What is Theology on Tap? The mission of Theology on Tap is to provide adults an opportunity to explore issues and topics that relate to faith and life in a casual, fun, low-pressure environment. Speakers from a number of churches, universities, and institutions in the DC-area share their thoughts and experiences on a variety of topics to get the conversations started each month. And we do this while enjoying a good beer and a burger (although other foods and drinks are also available)! 

Where does Theology on Tap meet? We gather in the upper room of the Bier Baron Tavern (IDs are checked at the door) on 22nd Street NW.

When does Theology on Tap meet? We meet the Third Wednesday of (almost) every month. The conversations begin at 7:00 p.m. and last until about 8:30, but if you arrive before 7:00 p.m. you can get a beer and a burger for $12. See the full calendar for upcoming Theology on Tap events.

Who is invited to attend Theology on Tap? Everyone! While most of our participants are young adults from St. John’s Church, Lafayette Square and St. Paul’s, K Street, adults from other area churches or no particular church also come for the conversations.

Can I bring a friend to Theology on Tap? YES! Please invite a friend to come along with you as this will enhance our conversations!

Do I have to be an Episcopalian to attend Theology on Tap? Nope. While St. John’s, Lafayette Square and St. Paul’s, K Street (two Episcopal churches) sponsor these gatherings, one does not need to be a member of these churches (or any church!) or an Episcopalian to attend. Some of our topics have an Episcopal theme to them but the hope is that everyone can participate in the conversations regardless of where they are on their spiritual journey.

Who should I contact to learn more about Theology on Tap? Contact the Rev. Rob Fisher for more information.
