A quiet, sleepy little village nestled against the lower Moorwash River, Golden Sheaves takes its name from the large crop of wheat, barley, oats, and other grains harvested every year by its largely human and gnomish population. Much of the village’s produce goes as a cash crop to feed the inhabitants of Port Hope and Merethrone, but a portion of the grain crop finds its way into the extremely fine ale brewed here and distributed by the keg as a trade item throughout the region. Over the past several generations, the quality of the village’s brew has improved steadily, and it is now of sufficient quality that it could, with the right marketing, become a sought-after trade commodity outside the region as well.
