From The Page (November, 1984):
On Saturday evening, the 10th of November, the hills of Kensington will sound with the oohs! and aahs! and yecchs! and other judicious comments of the Kingdom's brew connoisseurs as Caldarium hosts its first-ever BEER TASTING! A selected range of fine European beers, stouts, and ales will be available for tasting, as well as several rare home brews from Kingdom brewers.
For those who avoid the intoxicating evils of alcohol as well as those who plan to maneuver their chariots homeward along the King's highways, there will also be a selection of alcohol-removed brews, including root and bark beers and near-beers. A keg of domestic foamy will be available for those whose thirsts remain unslaked by the tastings. Finger-foods and various solid edibles will be included in the price of the ticket -- a modest $7 per person.
There will be no tickets at the door. You must contact Felicia NicChluarain by November 3 in order to reserve your place. Sleeping space is available by prior arrangement, and a map to the hilltop site will be provided with your ticekts. Sorry, due to the nature of this event and the limitations of the site, no children will be allowed. Call (phone) for reservations, or send $7 per person and a stamped self-addressed envelope to Felicia NicChlurain (contact info omitted).
Come and indulge: sing bawdy songs, drink, lech, and belch with us!
[Lech? Belch? In the Kingdom of the West? Since when did that stuff start? -- ed.]
