Today we’re talking about monks getting about one to two gallons of ale a day per monk. And common people potentially brewing in a modest household brewing 200 gallons of ale every month. That’s 1600 pints (in a modest 16th century household). While it isn’t clear how much early anglo-saxon households would brew, we don’t have records indicating that the early anglo saxons engaged in temperance so they were probably brewing quite a bit at home as well. So we’re going to have a lot of drunks in this week’s episode!
