The Amber Gold

In the city of Isondale you can find the Amber Gold. It is a Tavern that was opened after the bakery that once stood in the same location. The Amber Gold specializes in a variety of beverages made from kinds of honey specially harvested. The flagship drink of the Amber Gold carries the same name. It is a maple honey mead, aged for nine months in a cherry wood barrel. The proprietor, a [kin born named Don Flirksic Grenemon, is preparing to reopen the Bakery in the adjacent lot. Perhaps as an expansion on the Amber Gold, as the business has been booming. The people of the town have been in an exceptionally happy mood with the change in governance.   The secret of the Amber Gold's success, be it the former Bakery or the more recently established Tavern/brewery is that the owners have each in turn been approached by a clan of fey that lives in the nearby woods. The clan, which is composed of several families of grigs, malixies, and pixies, lead by a family of sprites. The deal for the services of gathering a wide and unusual variety of honey from both the nearby forest and even the occasional honey from The Feiry. In return, the fey are allowed to leave tokens to attract those who would make deals in the Tavern( the bakery would often have the tokens added to the packs of outgoing goods). The tavern has been the host to many deals with the fey in this way.

I really enjoy the fact that a ship has been named after the tavern! It is rare to see sci-fi themed taverns in the competition, but it is a welcome surprise! Were you thinking of adding more beneath each headline? The article seems a little slim with only a few sentences between each.

Thanks for the like and comment. As for my article I plan to expand it more now that I have made a map, most likely by creating a menu, and maybe a couple hooks to go with its themes.

  I would like to be there to drink honey near the forest of fairies. It's sad that I'm destined to drink cheap beer from the local store.   Great article, good luck!

I know how you feel. I actually am trying my hand at mead and its shocking how expensive local honey is.

Oh that menu sounds delicious. And so does that signature drink.
