The EKBG was formed in A.X. XXI (1985), with the signing of a scroll containing the following text. Originally, prospective members would sign the scroll. The requirement didn’t last long…not only would the scroll have quickly run out of room, that scroll would have had to travel to a lot of events! Now, if you are interested in joining, contact a guild member listed on the Members page, or come to a Brewers Guild event.
There being no organization in the Kingdom of the East devoted to the advancement of the art and science of producing medieval drinkables, we petition the Crown of the East to charter an East Kingdom Brewers Guild.
Our craft to be defined as the brewing, vintning, distilling, and compounding of period alcoholic drinkables.
Our guild exists to teach the craft, to spread camaraderie, inspiration, and thus information, and to aid in the judging and acknowledgment of those in the craft.
Our Aims are:
To bind our members with a tie of true and lasting friendship.
To strive for the advancement of our craft as both a science and as an art.
To aid our members by every honorable means in the attainment of their ambitions in our craft throughout their mortal lives.
To serve the Kingdom and its members as it can in competitions and education.
The guild is to be governed by the Guildmaster and guild bylaws.
Thus we ask Their Most Royal Highnesses, Ronald and Bronwyn to approve and bless our humble guild.
This at the Schola in Summer, held in the Barony of Settmour Swamp on the 26th of July, A.S. XXI.
