The Gaffer's, [In reply to] Can't Post

because I imagine that home brew in the Shire is a point of one-upsmanship as everyone tries to produce the best, so over the years each Hobbit has become exceptionally good at it!

Celebrimbor: "Pretty rings..."
Dwarves: "Pretty rings..."
Men: "Pretty rings..."
Sauron: "Mine's better."

"Ah, how ironic, the addictive qualities of Sauronís master weapon led to its own destruction. Which just goes to show, kids - if you want two small and noble souls to succeed on a mission of dire importance... send an evil-minded b*****d with them too." - Gandalf's Diaries, final par, by Ufthak.

I got an idea... [In reply to] Can't Post

Ya maybe, plus the Gaffer is older than me, ergo more experience brewing. Sounds like it would be a pretty cool contest though! Who ever wins, by way of best home brew of course, becomes The Gaffer for one year. So it would be like a title you hold, and you take home a Barrel with your name etched on it, kind of like the Stanley Cup

organically grown homebrew.

May your beer be laid under an enchantment of surpassing excellence for seven years!
Listen, strange women lying in ponds distributing swords is no basis for a system of government!

Research [In reply to] Can't Post

I think this will take an awful lot of research to judge properly. Roll the barrels in!

My website http://www.dreamdeer.grailmedia.com offers fanfic, and message-boards regarding intentional community or faerie exploration.

yeah! [In reply to] Can't Post

I wish I could remember all the words to that song "Roll out the barrel, we'll have a barrel of fun!" lol In college my German Professor made us sing it auf Deutsch. An elvish version would be pretty cool...
