Family Style Viking Dinner

CALLING ALL VIKINGS to party like it's 999!
FAMILY STYLE VIKING DINNER

The Viking themed dinner that never happened...

An interactive history presentation discussing beer and brewing in the United Kingdom during the 8th - 11th centuries, presented by beer historian and master brewer, Christopher Bowen. 
Tastings of authentic brews made by Viking methods, and a King's Table Banquet featuring goose, smoked fish, turkey, rack of lamb, roasted vegetables, and traditional breads.

For the lighthearted posters and other materials, I went and created a crazy band of marauding McCarthy's Vikings in their very own dragon boat. 
Original Viking vectors found on vectorstock.com
