Honey War: The 100 Beers
War!!!

Before the
Battle of Hastings in 1066 there was the Battle of Stamford Bridge.
Before Stamford Bridge there was the Battle of
Fulford.
 

Why the Battle of
Fulford?

Just as in
the Battle of Fulford, invaders from the Norse are crossing the
waters to do battle. Blatha An Oir is rallying their forces to once
again do battle with Glymm Mere and theirs.
 
History shows that the Norse were victorious and Viking shield wall
was unbroken by the English. Come to Honey War, The 100 Beers War
and see if history repeats itself.

Why The 100 Beers
War?

Her
Excellency Maricka of Blatha An Oir made a wager with Her
Excellency Aelisia of Glymm Mere. Each bet 50 beers that their
respective Barony would win. To the winner of the war points go 100
beers. Thus The 100 Beers War. There is no stopping the
beer… the beer must flow…

There will be a Seige Cooking
competition Saturday Stewarded over by my Brother Sergeant
HL Edmund Graham

 

The theme for the war is the battle of Fulford
(Northern Yorkshire, East Riding). In keeping with this, the
ingredients must be appropriate to what the combatants could have
brought with them or foraged in late summer in northern England in
1066. Seasonal and historical ingredients are
preferred.  (Long
pepper or fresh ginger are unlikely. Documentation is requested for
any exotic ingredients.)

 

Each entry must consist of three
dishes; each of the dishes presented must contain beer. (This is
broadly interpreted to include beer, ale, and ginger-ale or
O’Doul’s for those wishing to exclude alcohol. Pilsner,
lager, stout, etc. are all fine, but there is a preference against
extra-hoppy beers like IPA.)  BYOB.

 

Two mystery ingredients will be
provided; they will need to be included somewhere in the entry.

 

All preparation must be done
on-site. On-site pre-prep is acceptable if appropriate (e.g.:
marinating meat or soaking beans).

 

Mystery ingredients and detailed
instructions will be available after Saturday morning court. Judges
will circulate to all cooking sites. Contact judges or steward
staff if on-site preparations are planned for before court.

 

Any question to HL Edmund Graham
at moc.oohay@trevnoffirg, (253) 840-2715.
