The LDS Word of Wisdom; Enjoy Beer!

D&C 89:16-18

 16 All grain is good for the food of man; as also the fruit of the vine; that which yieldeth fruit, whether in the ground or above the ground—

 17 Nevertheless, wheat for man, and corn for the ox, and oats for the horse, and rye for the fowls and for swine, and for all beasts of the field, and barley for all useful animals, and for mild drinks, as also other grain.

 18 And all saints who remember to keep and do these sayings, walking in obedience to the commandments, shall receive health in their navel and marrow to their bones;


  1. Sure, but what constitutes a “mild drink”?

    1. The text of D&C 89 does not in any place refer to alcohol. Although it does mention "Strong" and "Mild" drinks.

      D&C 89:7 prohibits consumption of Strong drink
      D&C 89:17 explicitly recommends consumption of Mild Drink (as opposed to Strong?)

      Strong Drinks where generally understood as distilled alcoholic beverages while Mild were the fermented beverages (like Beer).

  2. Jeff, Utah Beer would definitely qualify as a "mild drink".

  3. And behold, this should be wine, yea pure wine of the grape of the vine of your own make...

    (from the word of wisdom in regards to wine at sacraments)

    Last time I checked there was a difference between wine and grape juice....

    IF wine was allowed at church ( to be glad and filled with the spirit,) am sure I would not be the only one going to church more often.
