ok, in the books, both beer/ale drinking and smoking pipeweed are a large part of life in Middle Earth.
Just as in the Middle Ages, and if you read the book on the languages of Middle Earth, Middle Earth was a term used to refer to the area around England including parts of Europe.
Based on that, what type of beer/ale/lager/pilsner would be the closest to what they would have drank in Middle Earth and/or the Middle Ages England?
The reason I ask is that I really really like to drink a few "unique" beers/Ales/etc while playing as it kind of lends to the atmospshere.
Also, in the movie and I think the books, Gimli made a comment about visting the dwarves and drinking "MALT BEER". What was he referring to?
I dont think they had "malt liquor" back then.
I did find a great link on how to make what would be an accurate representation of the Beer served in the Prancing Poney in Bree:
Since I am not a home brewer, my search for a bottled brand may be fruitless...
