Usually the only god we find ourselves praying to after a night of drinking is a porcelain one so it’s odd to find a book relating religion to beer. But the Search for God and Guinness points out that the two have quite the history together. The story starts with Christian Arthur Guinness who brewed beer along with monks to offer a healthy alternative to hazardous water and liquors during the time in Ireland. The author, Stephen Mansfield follows the beer from its beginning until it became one of the most consumed beverages in the world.

 You can’t have a fall evening without a fire. And you can’t have a fire without a Cowboy Cauldron. They’re built from solid plate steel, meaning they’ll last a lifetime or two and they come in four different sizes with elevated basins that can be adjusted to any height. We’re going with The Urbaan Cowboy® because it’s perfect for entertaining at home.  With a 30″ diameter basin, it is more than large enough to have a nice fire, but still small enough to pack into a pickup truck and take it with you.  Can you imagine the envy when we bust this puppy out at a tailgate or the beach? We haven’t seen a more handsome fire. You?  Best of all, Cool Material readers get an exclusive deal.
