Shire of Isenfir
Gemütlich means a situation that induces a cheerful mood and inner peace, with the connotation of belonging and social acceptance, of coziness and unhurry.
April, 1516. The Duchy of Bavaria.
Duke Wilhelm IV has just ended a price war between brewers and bakers over the price of wheat and rye by enacting the Reinheitsgebot. This “Purity Order” states that beer may only be brewed with water, barley, and hops, and it will define German beer production and taxation for the next five hundred years…
The Shire of Isenfir invites you back to Das RoteBerg Gasthaus, our rural inn and tavern on the road between Ingolstadt and Munich. Come join us in commemorating the 500th anniversary of the Reinheitsgebot with a day of classes and an evening of sumptuous feasting, dancing, and beer hall camaraderie!
Please see the event website for more information.
Martial Activities: As combat is not gemütlich, no martial activities are planned.
Arts & Sciences Activities: Neither are competitions gemütlich. Rather, there will be an outdoor collegium with classes focusing on home brewing and period beverages, SCA-style cooking and camping, and German culture. Details about the collegium will be posted on the event website. If you would like to teach, please contact our class coordinator, Lady Sarah Sinclair (Sally Sanford) at “sarahsan AT embarqmail dot com.”
There will be a period dance following feast.
