    Hear ye, hear ye citizens !

    The City of Yew conveys you to the 2014 edition of our brewing contest, named "Cheers to Yew !!", which will be held this next monday, July 21st, at 9pm EDT.

    The event will be held just outside of the Old Winery, near Empath Abbey. Anyone can participate.

    Each contestant is to produce 2 barrels of their best brew, which they will present to the attendees.

    To determine the winning receipe, each will be evaluated on the following criterias:

    - Presentation : the history of this brew, its name, and a description of the product.

    - Receipe : what special ingredients you use to get that unique result (be creative, no need to stand by the original ingame receipe)

    - Choice of the public : everyone will get to taste each brew and hear the presentations, and give a mark from 1 to 5.

    I will setup a distillery on the roof of my keep, with chests of barrels, honey from my own personnal hive, yeast from the local orks, wheat ort, melons, and whatever I might forget to brew the different receipes.

    There us also a vendor for potatoes, corn and wine.

    There will also be games and prizes.

    The more the merrier, so BYOB (bring your own booze) and remember to take the next day "off" for hangovers...

    Tehan,
    Governor of Yew.

    Which theme pack was needed to be able to use distilleries? I may have to break down and buy it. :)

    Rustic Theme Pack.

    You get a raised garden bed with it too, so it's a pretty decent buy.

    You still have time to brew your favorite liquor before tonight's party. Some receipes do not require maturing.

    You will find all thats needed for brewing on the roof of my keep, and theres a rune to it at Tea House.

    My brain seems to have had a major malfunction that has impacted poor Icky in a bad way. *sigh*

    Tonight is the event. Icky was operating under the impression that she would brew on the spot, and not in advance. So it's too late for her to bring a brew that can be used. Both her special brews require a significant amount of time to mature. Being a perfectionist of sorts, she cannot substitute ingredients. :(

    She can, however, be present to cheer on the contestants.

    She could still brew it, and present it, even if we cannot taste it yet.

    I'll be happy to have it served at the Fish House Grill & Bar when it has matured ;)

    I told Icky and she is brewing her favorite secret recipe as I type this. It is an intricate medley of little known ingredients, infused with certain, shall we say, magical incantations that only Icky knows. She will present a barrel to you, together with an old bottle she had been saving for posterity, and a book containing a bit of history. I would be careful, however, about offering this particular brew at the bar & grill. The side-effects.... well, perhaps you should ask Ashlynn. She knows. The brew was originally made for her, after all. ;)
