Approximately 80 homebrewers went on a double decker bus to three pubs: Duffy's Tavern, a local Irish pub; Churchill's Hideaway, a very old local pub which hiighlights punk and folk bands on Fridays and Saturdays; and Tobacco Road. *the* oldest pub in Miami, with Liquor license #1. It's known for blues, jazz and folk nights. We started out at around 1 p.m. on Sunday, and spent roughly two hours at each of the places before coming back to Wine and Brew By You. Each of the places had tables of food laid out for the pub-hoppers. This is one of the typical events that Wine and Brew does for their customers. The last pub hop we also went to three places: Tobacco Road; Churchill's Hideaway; and the Billabong in Hallandale (somewhat north of Miami), which is known for their collection of imported beers, typically 100 or more. aem - -- a.e.mossberg / aem at mthvax.cs.miami.edu / aem at umiami.BITNET / Pahayokee Bioregion Democracy becomes a government of bullies, tempered by editors. - Ralph Waldo Emerson Return to table of contents

I know that a few years back they published a rather comprehensive index; it ran for 7 or 8 pages, i think. Any information would be both helpful and appreciated. - -- sju.?? - -- Profound quote of the day: I've always wanted to go to garage sales and insult the stuff: "Did you really pay money for that?

Date: Wed, 21 Mar 90 11:25 EST From: CRF at PINE.CIRCA.UFL.EDU Subject: Facsimile cookbook ordering info Hi, All! In response to recent queries regarding how to obtain such of my sources as Sir Kenelme Digby, I contacted Dr. David Friedman, the gentleman in the SCA who sells xerox copies (legally arranged-for and cleared) of the facsimile editions. In many instances, Digby included, Dr. Friedman is the only available souce I know of. The information he sent me to be posted to this forum appears *after* my signature lines. Dr. Friedman's Miscellany is very much SCA-oriented, but may be of interest to some. His 2-volume collection is what contains the copies of the facsimile cookbooks, volume I being the one which contains Digby. In all honesty and fairness, I think I should add that if you purchase the cookbook collection, plan on buying a magnifying glass. In the interests of cost-efficiency, Dr. Friedman has used reduction xeroxing to get 4 pages of a facisimile on one page of the collection. A magnifying glass makes reading the collection much easier on the eyes, and isn't that much hassle. If anyone has any further questions, they may feel free to contact me. Yours in Carbonation, Cher "The first cup of coffee recapitulates phylogeny." -- Anon. ============================================================================= Cheryl Feinstein INTERNET: CRF at PINE.CIRCA.UFL.EDU Univ. of Fla. BITNET: CRF at UFPINE Gainesville, FL Gentles: I have received a number of letters asking about the price and availability of our Miscellany. The price is $7 plus postage. You can either send a stamped, self-addressed envelope or an extra dollar per copy for postage (special 4th class--printed material). If you send an envelope, it should be at least 9x12 and have postage for 15 ounces. For those of you who have not seen the Miscellany, the current (4th) edition is 165 pages long, printed on 8 1/2 by 11 paper, and spiral bound (not literally a spiral--the kind of plastic binding that allows the book to open flat). The first section contains our current collection of worked-out period recipes, giving both the original and information on how we interpret it. The middle section contains essays on a variety of topics. The final section is my SCA poetry, plus a little prose. We also have available a two volume collection of source material for period cooking. Volume I contains about 1200 pages of material, reduction xeroxed 4 pages to 1, making it about 150 sheets of paper, each printed on both sides. It sells for $15 plus $2 postage and handling (just $15 if you provide the envelope and postage for almost two pounds). Volume II (2nd edn) contains about 240 pages of material, reduced to 2 pages on 1 (about 60 sheets of paper, each printed on both sides). It sells for $7 plus $1 postage and handling ($7 if you provide the stamped envelope). Both volumes are three hole punched but not bound. Volume I contains copies of existing period or almost-period (Kenelm Digby and Hugh Platt) cookbooks. Volume II contains new translations of period cookbooks, done at my instigation by people in the Society, plus a few related odds and ends. These are not worked-out recipes but originals--they typically have no temperatures, times, or quantities. The current edition of Volume II (the one I was selling at Pennsic) is the third edition, which sells for $9 and is substantially longer, but I am sold out. I have not decided whether to print more or wait until some more translations come in and do a fourth edition. If you order five or more Miscellanies, we will pay postage. If you order ten or more, the price drops to $6 and we pay postage. Sincerely Yours David Friedman (Cariadoc) 4919 S. Dorchester Chicago, IL 60615 Return to table of contents
Date: Wed, 21 Mar 90 15:45:16 EST From: nolan at lheavx.DNET.NASA.GOV (Tom Nolan) Subject: IPAs of yesteryear To add to the IPA list (currently Ballantine and Liberty), I used to enjoy Labatt's IPA, it would have been around 1970-1974 that it was available in the US, at least in Upstate New York. I don't know if it is still made, but I haven't seen it in a long time. Another beer that I could get in New York in the 70's was Red Cap, and I don't remember the brewer (was it Carling?) It was not labeled as an IPA but it had a similar look and feel. I think I was buying it when I could no longer get Labatt's IPA. Does anyone else recall these beers of decades past?
