Northern California native Adam Bowers is a convert to the Catholic Church, a “house-husband”, homeschooling father to four, and an attorney. His ongoing study of the Catholic Church is from the perspective of a layman in the Church Militant. His other passions include offering friends and family his take on “Catholic hospitality” in the form of homebrewed beer, wine from his hobby vineyard, home-cured charcuterie, things cooked over fire, and other rustic cuisine. Adam dispenses pints, provisions, and orthodox Catholic Joy at his blog, Quartermaster of the Barque (http://www.qmbarque.com).
