Although I agree with Leelee, since he's from mirkwood, he's not unfamiliar with men or dwarves (being part of a society that trades with laketown, not too far from the lonely mountain), and although he 's probably never entered a drinking competition with a dwarf using the mead of Rohan before, that's no reason to pretend he doesn't know what to expect or how much alcohol he can hold. By Bilbo's account, elves in Mirkwood have a fondness for drink as much as any other folk!....
Did you ever have to muck out a cow shed in the time between winter and spring? That foul water had to drain somewhere and sometime it was into the local well. 'Yuckers! Bartender, another ale, if you please.'
Yeah, but...what if that water (from the well) was then used to make the ale you just ordered? Ahhh, NOW WE KNOW where that rich dark color comes from, LOL!
That is interesting Vir. I did not know that. But surely the people had knowledge to boil the water, hopefully the milk. i do hope so, undulent fever from raw milk is serious. I remember being shocked when i read about a saint that as a small child, attended a small school and all the children were given a fairly hefty glass of red wine and a cookie at lunch time each day. i am surprised they were not all in a coma the rest of the day.
