The Irminfolk’s Brewer’s Guild members supply a great variety of homebrewed beers, Ales, Meads and Ciders to community events and rituals.

The drinking of Ale is known to have been a ritualized part of Germanic, Norse, and Anglo Saxon culture, with written accounts of Sumbel dating back to 77AD.

The drinking of ale was particularly important to several seasonal religious festivals, with levies in place which required Farmers to brew in preparation for Winternights and  Yule celebrations.
