  • Cordial Tasting – 27 June – Limited Spots!

    Hello fellow brewers!

    I have recently gotten back into brewing and would like to hold an informal tasting over zoom if anyone would be interested. This is for The Austin area. Nicaize and Elen will be getting the supplies from me and passing them out to those interested. The zoom get together would be for Saturday, June 27. Donations via PayPal of 5 dollars are appreciated [and can be arranged via this post in the Bryn Gwlad Brewing Guild]. You will be tasting three cordials and be getting a bag of small tasting bottles. As of right now we have six spots open. All are welcome to be on the zoom get together even if you did not get a cordial pack. Households should have enough of small tastings for 2-3. Please [reach out via the Brewing Guild Facebook Group] if you are interested so we can coordinate the drop locations (there will be two-one for South Austin and one for North.) For more information please feel free to reach out. Nicaize will be hosting the zoom get together.

    Thank you for your time,
    Kalista Z Rostova

  • King’s College: Online Event tomorrow, 13 June!

    Greetings unto the friends and populace of Bryn Gwlad!

    Tomorrow, Saturday the 13th of June, is Kings College! Kings College is a class-focused event where you can attend discussions and demonstrations ranging from studies of historical events to how-to guides for historical candies to round tables discussing running events in the SCA.

    There are 12 different classes being offered every hour and a half from 9am to 5pm (with an hour break for lunch at 11:30) so I am certain you can find something you are interested in. All times listed are CST

    The event is being hosted through eventsxd and the link is below. You can currently go review the schedule which is both in table form for easy viewing as well in long hand with a description of the class and the teacher’s name. The hyperlinks for the classes won’t go live until 8:30am Saturday, but if you create an account now you can make an agenda so you won’t waste a single class slot. Please note that participants will be required to register (or sign in) via eventsxd for each class attended.

    At 5pm the classes will end and their Majesties Jason and Margherita, King and Queen of Ansteorra will hold a virtual court that will be streamed via the Ansteorran facebook group. Come join to see members of the populace recognized and for the swearing of fealty by the Masters of Defense.

    See you in the classroom!
