I think he might also be the patron saint of misguided good intentions.

Sanctus Ivo erat Brito,
Advocatus, et non latro
Res miranda populo.

Saint Yvo was a Breton and a lawyer,
But not dishonest -
An astonishing thing in people's eyes.

- from a 14th century description of Saint Ivo

14. Goddamn, your grammar sucks.
I think you meant to type, "Of what is St. Ides the patron saint?"

19. They plug the High Gravity, but I bet hardly anyone knows what that means
Especially any idiot who buys the stuff, but perhaps they will be intrigued to learn. :shrug:

It's a reference to the finishing point of the beer, in respect to the amount of alcohol. You have a starting gravity and a final gravity. It's about how dense the beer has become as respect to water. And the starting gravity basically is the amount of sugar the yeast will digest. The final gravity is a measure of the amount of alcohol which has been fermented.

Essentially, the higher the gravity the harder the beer.

And yes, St Ides is basically flavored beer. Actually, all malt liquor is, including that crap you buy in clubs Smirnoff Ice and the rest of that junk. It's all flavored beer, in simplest terms. Feel better?
