It should be noted that a great deal of material dealing with the Synod of Spirits is located on the "Top Ten Time Wasters" thread.  It was the decision of the Synod, meeting in session earlier this month, that all posting activity regarding the Holy Synod would be restricted to the Post Count Thread, thus decreasing confusion amongst the mass of alchohol-imbibing laity.

here is the Time Wasters link, for reference:

About Rheinheitsgebot.... A German monk that I know from the holy mountain was talking with me one day and was very excited and asked me if I knew what today was.  I couldn't think of any particular Saint that was commorated or anything of that sort, so I said I had no idea.  All excited he said it was Rheinheitsgebot day... we then talked about how Greeks drink too much water and not enough beer, lamented that Heineken and Amstel are the most common beers in Greece...

And each time I go drinking in America with this ridiculous 21 thing... I'm in Germany in spirit - that's still legal right?

Well, we're all up for people whose "spirits" are in different nations, especially ones with proud traditions of alchohol production and consumption; but, alas, this will be useless if the members of the synod are trapped behind bars for providing alchohol to minors.

I'm glad to hear you have the best interests of the Synod - and alchohol-consumers everywhere - in mind.  We are very pleased.

UPDATE:

Voting for Robert, to be Archbishop of Scotch: 3 aye, 0 no, 1 conditional aye, 1 uncollected (+SERB1389).
Voting for Pedro, to be Archbishop of Tequila: 3 aye, 0 no, 1 conditional aye, 1 uncollected (+SERB1389).

New ballot: Fr John Bon Jovi for Archbishop of Absinthe.

By voice vote (right now, actually): 3 aye (me, Gic, SS), 1 ναι (yes - chris), 0 no, 1 uncollected (3+SERB1389)

It would be appreciated if the +SERB1389 would cast his ballot at least on the issue of the election of Pedro.
Also if he could vote on the issue of Robert's election, it would be appreciated.

So can I at least have a youth ministery post on the synod?  Something like Nektarios, the Apostle for the distribution of Alchohol and Tobacco to minors, advocate of underage intoxication and irresponsible drinking?

From the Bazaar,
to the Plentitude of the Faithful over the age of 21 in the US of A, and to all the faithful in the world abroad,
To the reverened Distillery Metropolitans, Distribution Despotas, Pricing Presbyters, Imbibing Deacons,
Instructors and students at the Bartending Universities,

The Great Distiller is presented into the Tavern for our salvation!

According to the ancient typikon of the Grand Taverna of the Great Distiller, and the practice of the Holy Synod of Spirits, in conjunction with the canons that guide the consumption of Alchohols everywhere, it is our duty as Chief Secretariat of the Holy Synod of Spirits to announce the ordinations of the servants of the Great Distiller listed below to the episcopacy, to the vacant sees listded, through the ancient custom of the laying on of drinking glasses (in hand) by the servants, the His Inebriatedness the Bishop of Bourbon, His All-Imbibedness the Metropolitan of Metaxa, and His All-Imbibedness the Metropolitan of Mead.

+ROBERT, Archbishop of Scotch
+PEDRO, Archbishop of Tequila and All Agave-Based Drinks
+FRjBJ, Archbishop of Absinthe

As with the ancient custom, it is now required for the Cheif Secretariat to publish the text of the Holy 5th Canon of the Fourth Holy Synod of All-Alchoholics, in conjunction with the ordination of one of the heads of the Autocephalous Spirit-doms.

Quote from: Holy Fourth Synod of the Alchoholics convened in the Taverna of the Distillery in Loretto
Renewing the ancient privileges of the patriarchal sees, we decree, with the approval of this sacred universal synod, that after the Bourbon church, which through the Great Distiller's disposition has a primacy of ordinary power over all other churches inasmuch as it is the mother and mistress of all the Great Distiller's faithful, the church of Brandy shall have the first place, the church of Ouzo the second place, the church of Rum the third place, and the church of Gin the fourth place, each maintaining its own rank. Thus after their pontiffs have received from the Bourbon pontiff the shot-glass, which is the sign of the fullness of the pontifical office, and have taken an oath of fidelity and obedience to him they may lawfully confer the shot-glass on their own suffragans, receiving from them for themselves canonical profession and for the Bourbon church the promise of obedience. They may have a standard of the Great Distiller's still carried before them anywhere except in the city of Loretto or wherever there is present the supreme pontiff or his legate wearing the insignia of the Great Apprentices' dignity. In all the provinces subject to their jurisdiction let appeal be made to them, when it is necessary, except for appeals made to the See of the Prince of the Apprentices of the Great Distiller, to which all must humbly defer. 

It is in the joy of the Great Distiller that we welcome the new Archbishops of Scotch, Tequila, and Absinthe, and raise a glass of their episcopal drink, hoping that the Great Distiller shows mercy on their livers, and on the livers of us all.

As a matter of etiquette, it should be noted what the addressing titles of the hierarchs are:

His Inebriatedness, for the Bishop of Bourbon
His All-Imbibedness, for the Metropolitans of Metaxa and Mead
His Imbibedness, for the Archbishops of Ouzo, Rum, and Gin
His Intoxicatedness, for the Archbishops of Tequilla, Schlivo, Absinthe, Port, and the Cordials
His Drunkenness, for the Archbishops of Scotch, Stoli, and Stout.

The Holy Synod appreciates the kindness that you have shown to us, and we raise our glasses to the faithful masses.

Hmmm, it seems that such a posistion would only serve to undermine the synod. However, a see of an Alcoholic beverage from a land with less oppressive drinking laws could be in order.

He could have one of the bavarian episcopacies under the omophor of the Metropolitan of Mead and all Beers...

We figure that you could use a suffregant bishop in that area, adding to the members of your local synod, and strengthening the representation of the important See of All Beers.

If you insist on Baveria, I'll settle for Bishop of München.  My favorite town in Germany though is in Tübingen, not Baveria but still Southern Germany.  Then again the picture of me at a beer festival is in Stuttgart... I'm happy to be bishop of any of those cities!

There needs to be a particular beverage that you are bishop of, and then you could always tack on the city from which it principally comes; for example, you could be the bishop of Oktoberfest, Exarch of Munich.  Think about it.

Well, that makes all elections unanimous without abstentions, but with conditional votes by +CHRIS of Mead and All-Beer requiring the elected hierarchs present themselves before the synod with the fruits of their respective Sees.

Well, there is the Archbishopric of Port, who happens to be the Chartophylax of the Ecumenical Patriarch.  Are you requesting election to the see?

Bloody brits...haha. 

Add another Yes for Lucifer the Black (AYE!)

I would also like to also be privy to the Ecumenical bling!!!  haha. 

I have a semi-technical question too.  Wouldn't SS99 be under my jurisdiction, especially pertaining to "all clear-based liquors" which would include vodka....this is for the synod to decide.  Isn't Metaxa a more cognac based liquor? 

And the turf war begins..haha.  Good luck cleveland!  haha

Archbishop of Shlivo, Patriarch of All Vodkas & Defender Against All Overstepping!

                           ---------------------------------------------------------

To His Inebriatedness, +GIC, Bishop of Bourbon, Vicar of the Great Distiller, Successor to the Prince of the Apprentices of the Great Distiller, Supreme Pontiff of All Alcohol, Patriarch of all Grain-Based Alcohols, Primate of Kentucky, Archbishop and Metropolitan of All Whisky, Sovereign of Loretto, and Servant of the Servants of the Great Distiller, Presiding Bishop of the Holy Synod of the Spirits.

With honor, by this letter, we would like to inform Your All-Holiness about the harmful situation of His Imbibedness, +SERB1389, Archbishop of Ouzo, Pope and Patriarch of All Similar Clear-Alchohols. With regret, I must inform you that His Imbibeness +Serb1389 is attempting to assert that the Archbishop of Shlivo, Patriarch of All Vodkas & Defender Against All Overstepping, Mt. Passout Serbia, submit to the jurisdiction of His Imbibedness +Serb1389.

As your All-Holiness is well aware, such decisions are never made upon unilateral declaration, and the very notion, treads the line of Schism. Further, it is well known that Schlivo, while clear at times can also be dark and clearly different in charachter from that of Ouzo, which is undoubtedly a splendid drink on its own.

It is also put suggested, that Archbishop of Shlivo, Patriarch of All Vodkas & Defender Against All Overstepping, Mt. Passout has already been subject to overstepping by His Holiness, Metropolitan of Metaxa and All Brandy, Overstepper of all bounds.+Cleveland; While we understand that you do share a rather close relationshop with these Holy interlopers, it is respectfully submitted that you ask His Imbibeness +Serb1389, to renounce all claims to jurisdiction to our Episcopy.

Remaining with deep gratitude and sincere admiration for You personally, we would like to ask for Your God-recognized confident paternal prayers and blessings, kissing Your holy inebriated right hand.

Archbishop of Shlivo, Patriarch of All Vodkas & Defender Against All Overstepping, Mt. Passout Serbia,

To clerify my eparchial right, I believe the question was over Vodka, not Shlivo.  Clearly his Intoxicatedness has misunderstood my position on this matter.  Perhaps, it would suffice if he would be willing to become Locum Tenens of Vodka underneath my Omophorion, he would come to see the beauty of all which is clear-based alcohols, and recant his earlier attempts at outburst and indecorum. 

Ultimately, I humbly leave the matter to the discussion and decision of the synod. 

Respectfully,
+SERB1389  Archbishop of Ouzo, Pope and Patriarch of All Similar Clear-Alchohols

Well, it appears that I am behind in registering my votes!

vai for LTB, Red Deacon, and for Nektarios

Additionally, I think my enthusiastic friend FatGreek means phimi, not 'femme', which made me wonder initially just what out mutual seminarian friend was disclosing....

Speaking of phimoi, I would like to comment that twice now I, as Patriarch of Beer, have wandered into a room while some (all of legal drinking age) were enjoying my thronal beverage.

Imagine my surprise when no one in the room greeted me with my phimi, although one colorful Deacon did perform an Eis polla. As I was about to beat one person in the room with my staff, it was brought to my attention that by phimi does not yet exist.

Therefore, I think we should work on it. And, I insist that it be noted I have potatoes... Wink

This post was attempted literally 30 seconds before the board went down Mon eve:

From the Bazaar,
To the Members of the Holy Synod of Spirits

Peace, in the name of the Great Distiller, who was presented into the Tavern!

So the voting tally for LTB's application:
+GIC: yes
+GEORGE: yes
+SERB1389: yes
+CHRIS: yes
+SS99: yes

And, in a semi-partial-somewhat-kinda-formal request, Red Deacon is petitioning for election to the Archbishopric of Port.

I will enter a yes vote for myself.

So the voting tally for Red Deacon's application:

+GEORGE: yes
+CHRIS: yes
non-entered:
+GIC
+SERB1389
+SS99

As stated earlier, the other elected members will have to wait for the Synod to deliberate who/how many more voting members there shall be on the Holy Synod.

From the Bazaar,

To the members of the Holy Synod of Spirits, especially +SERB1389,

Let us rejoice in The Great Distiller Who is Presented into the Tavern!

In a synodal letter dealing with the deposition of the Former Archbishop of Stoli, George, the Archbishop of Schlivo, Patriarch of All Vodka was placed under the protection of the Metropolitan of Metaxa and All Brandy.  To wit:

http://www.orthodoxchristianity.net/forum/index.php?topic=7917.msg103423#msg103423

Quote from: The Bishop of Bourbon
By decree of the Holy Synod, on account of the recent unfortunate developments, the Autonomy of the Archbishopric of Stolichnaya and Patriarchate of All Vodka is hereby revoked and the Bishop of Schlivo is hereby made the Locum Tenens of the See of Stolichnaya and invested with the rights and privileges therein entailed and shall be commemorated as the Bishop of Schlivo and Archbishop of All Vodka, but shall recognize the Archbishop of Metaxa and Patriarch of All Brandy as his head and shall maintain obedience the Bishop of Bourbon, Supreme Pontiff of All Alcohol.

It should also be noted that the Title "Patriarch of All Similar-Clear Alchohols" is a very specific one: The Archbishop of Ouzo is Patriarch of all clear Alchohols similar to it; a very great responsibility indeed.  I believe this specific definition came about in a meeting of the Intoxicousa Synod of the Ecumenical Patriarchate sometime in the 17th Century; I may end up asking the Chartophylax to find the reference.

I hope that this is helpful in the process of growth and understanding between the members of this great and holy Synod.

May the Great Distiller bless us all.  In His service, I remain faithfully yours,

+GEORGE
Metropolitan of Metaxa and All Brandy, Patriarch of All Fruit-Based Alchohols, Ecumenical Patriarch
Chief Secretariat of the Holy Synod of Spirits

Actually (and this is a total aside from it being my Thronal Beverage) Metaxa is actually quite good for colds; brandies do a good job of warming the insides and clearing a bit of the congestion.

From the Bazaar,
to the Plentitude of the Faithful over the age of 21 in the US of A, and to all the faithful in the world abroad,
To the Holy Synod of Spirits, and its President, His Inebriatedness the Bishop of Bourbon and Supreme Pontiff,
To the reverened Distillery Metropolitans, Distribution Despotas, Pricing Presbyters, Imbibing Deacons,
Instructors and students at the Bartending Universities of the Holy Ecumenoi and the Patriarchate of All Fruit-Based Alchohols,

The Great Distiller is presented into the Tavern for our salvation!

In accordance with the ancient typikon of the Grand Taverna of the Great Distiller, and the practice of the Holy Synod of Spirits, in conjunction with the canons that guide the consumption of Alchohols everywhere, it is our duty as Chief Secretariat of the Holy Synod of Spirits to announce the ordinations of the servants of the Great Distiller listed below to the episcopacy, to the vacant sees listded, through the ancient custom of the laying on of drinking glasses (in hand) by the servants, the His Inebriatedness the Bishop of Bourbon, His All-Imbibedness the Metropolitan of Metaxa, and His All-Imbibedness the Metropolitan of Mead.

+LUCIFER THE BLACK (heretofore +LTB), Bishop of Stouts and All 40oz Malt Liquor,
With the honoraria due to his throne and position, including the titles: Rider of the 45 Colts, Bearer of the 10 Episcopal Rings, and Keeper of the Ecumenical Bling.

It is in the joy of the Great Distiller that we welcome the new Bishop of Stout and raise a glass of his episcopal drink, hoping that the Great Distiller shows mercy on his liver, and on the livers of us all.
