The Making of Instant Pentecostal Apostle

The Reverend Vince Anderson and his Love Choir have become an institution, holding mass every Monday night at Union Pool. Self-described as “dirty gospel,” the Rev. gives a soulful, optimistic and uplifting performance every week. This past Monday, to celebrate his birthday and toast his relationship with Union Pool, Vince teamed up with SixPoint Brewery to create his own beer. Here is the making of SixPoint Instant Pentecostal Apostle.
