The people that are sampling everything will have their own, that they purchase at the gate, that's how we know that they are of age.

To little berries and shrews, don't make a good cake.

Actually, it's large berries and minced shrews. 
I'll be there, and I have a bottle of Angus de Botha's chocolate liqueur I've been meaning to tap.  Have we got (or should someone get) a bunch of itty-bitty paper cups for sampling?

I'm pretty sure the proper recipe calls for large berries and smallish shrews, so it's all good.

You're baking shrews and berries into cakes?  Every thing you make is the gold standard of feasting but that sounds dubious.

I’ll be there with Shrewsbury cakes and liqueurs from Theron.

Hi, Mag Mor.
Octoberfest (or OctoBeerfest) is on Thursday, October 10, at the Lancaster Co Event Center.  Because that's the same day I'll be having shoulder surgery, neither Volkmar nor I will be able to attend.  Can someone please help coordinate this demo?  I'm happy to share all I know about it. 

  • Jim Krysl is the contact (402-730-8755),[log in to unmask]
  • We should plan to show up as soon after 4:30 pm as possible to get set up.  There's a VIP hour (people who pay to get in early) from 5:30 to 6:30 pm

·         Here's the info from the event center calendar:

o    Nebraska Stroke Okto Beer Fest

Location: Pavilion I
Benefit for the Nebraska State Stroke Association
VIP 5:30-6:30pm
Beer Tasting Food Sampling Silent Auction

    • 4100 N. 84th Street, Lincoln, Ne 68507
  • Last year we had Shrewsbury cake and gingerbrede samples along with the wine, liqueur, mead, etc samples.  We still have lots of recipe cards stapled to baronial business cards. I'll make gingerbrede samples, Gwyneth said she'd make the Shrewsbury cake samples. I've also still got lots of those little paper cups for sampling.
  • We tried to have a few other crafts visible at the table, and -- hopefully -- fighting and/or dancing and/or music for the stage area at 7 pm.  Ceiling height is NOT a problem! The stage may be smallish for fighting, but -- with a couple of constables -- there's space in front of the stage that worked well in the past.
  • There will be plenty of free food there from many, many booths, so anyone helping with the demo can just plan on eating supper there. 
Please contact me if you can attend -- I'll pass that information along to whoever ends up coordinating that day.
-- Isadora
