Skinners Brewery Tour in Kernewek

The Prag Na project (blog, facebook) has been organising social events using the Cornish language, and one of these was a tour of Skinners Brewery Truro on 16th March.

We had an excellent tour thanks to Emma from Skinners Brewery and Pol Hodge translating into Kernewek. Of course we also sampled the very good ales, and had a pasty. Once a few pints of ale were down we sang a few songs in Kernewek and much merriment was had by all.

We even had a story by Loveday and Pol about saints Piran and Patrick (recording by Rob Lawrance)

Here are some pictures of the event:

Boxes of hops. These are not grown in Cornwall as the climate isn't very suitable but can be from a number of sources including Kent, Worcestershire, USA, Czech Republic and Slovenia.

In the vessel pictured, steam is added to the barley to produce a liquid known as 'wort'.
The copper on the right was formerly used in a Scotch whisky distillery
