Well, I did notice a certain Tim Saunders haunting the edges of the field at the Gorsedh. (I only haunted it for half an hour after ferrying a couple of people there. I was gone by 12.30pm).

Not in the "Blue Anchor" they don't.

Straight from the Barrel is the only way.

From the barrel? Hah! At the Three Saffron Buns, we dive straight into the vat.

It is considered customary to drink the beer at the "Blue Anchor", anyone attempting to bathe in it would be politely requested to leave the premises immediately. Helped on their way with a few choice words, such as Boot, Fist, Knee, etc.

That said, the actual brewing process, being totally secret, is rumored to involve 21 year old virgins and a loofah, but this is merely to encourage the fermentation process, and to enhance the flavor.

How you treat your beer in the "Three Saffron Buns", is up to you, but they do say that the strange behaviour in that establishment is due, entirely, to the insistence of the Landlord in spreading Butter, in liberal amounts, on the bar snacks he offers on a Thursday afternoon, after which the pub is named. :shock:

It is related in J. Trenoodle's How It DId Belong to Be Downalong in Old Porthfrantick that the first master brewer at the Three Saffron Buns in fact drowned during brewing operations. However, patrons were assured that he had climbed out three times in order to relieve himself.

The other four times he couldn't be bothered, thus giving the brew it's distinctive taste. A taste, I am told, that is maintained in the traditional way to this very day.

No, no, no, The Landlord who first initiated this unholy assault on the delicate flavours of Christendoms most highly regarded afternoon treat, was displaying the typical Saxon inability to credit anything to a non Saxon nation. The milk used was in fact from Wales, not whales. Everyone knows that milk from whales is only ever used in a Intuit version of Calamari, after it has been allowed to ferment in a closed igloo for 14 months, and the Japanese occasionally mix it with Saki, to give the drink a bit of body. Apparently, there are those who make Ice Cream from it as well.

Gorsedh

Organization founded by a known subversive and whose members are, according to Le Figaro, attired like members of the Moroccan nobility.

Bard

Permanently excluded from the Three Saffron Buns by the self-employed doormen for making childish jokes about multiple spelling systems.
