One of the most famous Dwarf craftguilds, the Brewers can be found in all Dwarf settlements. A single family often represents the guild in smaller settlements, but the larger Dwarfholds may most anywhere from five to ten Brewer clans.[1a]

Brewers take great pride in the potency and flavour of their ale, and competition between clans is robust. Formal brewing competitions usually take place on Brodag, a festival of Grungni on 33 Valdazet (Brauzeit). The festivities are open to anyone in the settlement, and even the occasional human or Halfling guest. It is a day of merriment, singing and storytelling. It is said of Brodag that if you can remember it the next morning, you will never forget it as long as you live.[1a]

The epitome of the ale brewers' craft is Bugman's XXXXXX Bitter. This dark brew is the ale of choice for the courts of the Emperor in Altdorf and of the High King of Karaz-a-Karak.[1a]
