Walking the Boards (1998-current)

The guild has held a party in December or January since it's 2nd year (1986). It was given the name "Walking the Boards" in January of 1998.

Walking the Boards is now usually held in January and is the 1st quarter Guild meeting and get together/party.


Walking the Boards is a day long event,, usually starting around 10am. The day's activities include:

  • The 1st quarter meeting
  • Officer changeovers
  • Brew judging, especially for folks needing a few more scores for rank advancement
  • Classes, especially those needed for rank advancement
  • Bring your own lunch
  • Potluck dinner, with the guild paying for the meat course
  • Rank advancement ceremony
  • Best use of alcohol in a desert contest
  • Gift exchange (for those who wish to participate) with a $20 limit, and the item(s) must be brewing related

Meaning of the Name

As told by Lynnette de Sandoval del Valle de los Unicornios:

In the Dragonriders of Pern books by Anne McCaffrey, the Harper's Guild ate at tables based on their rank.

When a Harper gained a new rank, they walked the boards to the new table.

When the Guild decided to have a yearly dining event that included rank advancement, I suggested (well, pushed for actually) calling it Walking the Boards.

My vision was to have rank advancements announced at dinner, with those advancing "walking the boards" up to the head table to get a certificate of their new rank.

Great Western War Brewing Contest (2005-current)

On Saturday of Great Western War the Guild runs a brewing contest open to all brewers from all kingdoms.

Syrup Contest (2022)

In order to:

  • Replenish the Guild’s supply of syrups for the snow cone booth
  • Bring more attention to making syrups
  • Remind people that syrups are period
  • Have a fun contest

The Right Noble Brewers Guild Of Caid would like to invite everyone to enter a contest of sweet syrups at the Festival of the Rose in Dreiburgen on February 5th, 2022, showing off our non-alcoholic drink and ice embellishments.
