As to the heart of your question, I have NO idea!  I do, however, firmly
believe that cold beer and pretzels takes care of cancer (there are a few of
my fellow children of the 80's that will recognize that line).

Your message has, certainly,  reminded me of something that I have been
neglectful of:  I need to thank the Brotherhood of Brewers and Vintners of

The sheer volume of alcohol that they provided was appreciated (and enjoyed)
by many.  Please remember that all of the fine drink didn't just show up
after a stop at the 7-11.  The sheer hours and hard work involved to produce
one keg of beer or case of wine is amazing.  If you have not witnessed the
process, I urge you to contact one of the Brotherhood and arrange to do so
(this is just another good reason for you to spend more time in Namron).

In specific, I'd like to thank Barat, Donnchadh and Mathias for their
wonderful gift of time and energy that made possible the Protectorate
Brewing Competition.  Vivat!

Again,  Thanks to all the Brewers!
