East Kingdom Brewers Round Table
Saturday, 1-4 pm, Treehouse Pavilion
Come and sample your wares with the Brewers of the East Kingdom. We will talk about brewing technique, results, and experimentation in period style brewing techniques. If you have a homebrew, bring it along to share and discuss. If there are enough judges we can also hold official Panels for the Guild. You do not need to be a Guild member to attend, but you do need to be 21 or older.
Chop and Chat
Saturday and Sunday, 2 pm, Dining Hall
Roll up your sleeves and help prepare the evening feast. You’ll be asked to do simple, guided tasks – no experience necessary, just a willing attitude. Children are welcome if they are safe around knives. This is a great time to socialize with your fellow SCAdians. (Y)
Evening at the Taverna – Vindiorix and Corotica
Saturday, 8 pm. Private camp near Joiner and the Thrown Weapons Field.
Join us at Masculus’ Letter, a late 1st century CE Romano-Celtic taverna a day’s walk from Vindolanda. Experience an evening in a tavern, and learn about British Romano-Celtic life. Sample food and drink from the period. Learn a Roman board game from an off-duty centurion. Try your luck with a game of chance, or talk with the tavern owners and their staff. No class fee, but donations accepted to offset the cost of food and drink. Bring a mug!
