The Mad Monks
In the Monastery of Bierbrau, the monks brew their famous ales which are sold all year round to keep the church coffers full.

The monks are normally forbidden to drink their own beer, except on their ‘night of madness’ - Verrücktheitsnacht, where one special barrel is marked by the Abbot for consumption by the monks.

On this night all of the monks attempt to gain the barrel, claiming not to want the beer for themselves, but merely to save their brothers from its influence.

The sacred barrel must be carried through the ancient and time worn route of cellar, brewery, kitchen and refectory before finally to one monk’s cell by any route possible.

The Abbot acts as a referee, making sure that nobody gets seriously injured, or breaks too many of the monastery’s rules during the night of madness.

Once a monk reaches his cell, he may lock himself in and safely dispose of the beer.

Whatever happens during the night of madness, it will never be spoken of ever again...
