MINNEAPOLIS  - The organizers of the Twin Cities Beer Choir say the group is a way to get people to sing without pressure to hit the notes perfectly.

Minnesota Public Radio reports that co-founder Paul Wilson says the Twin Cities chapter launched with a gathering at Summit Brewing in St. Paul last January. It went straight from being the newest chapter to the flagship for the national movement.

Anyone who comes is given a hymnal filled with drinking song. People also can download it to their smartphones. Sometimes the sheet music is projected up on a screen behind the accompanist.

Another group leader, Adam Reinwald, says there's something special about seeing people from different backgrounds work together on a song and celebrate mastering it.
