|Led by its youthful and entrepreneurial leader, Colesmith, the Alesmith Breweries is a relatively new but well-known chain of Breweries quickly spreading throughout all nations of Joria. Serving some of the finest ale in its own lavish taverns, as well as most others with the wealth to purchase their alcohols, Alesmith Breweries is now a household name with most Dwarven and Human establishments.|
Alesmith Breweries origins lie with its founder, Baston Alesmith, a retired warrior who started the first Alesmith Brewery in Deephammer over 300 years ago. His youth and vigour in the early days certainly caught his more traditional and rigid colleagues by surprise, but no one could deny Baston’s skill for making exquisite ale that was affordable and had enough potency to knock out the ‘tall’ folk with one stein. As years passed by, Baston’s name became well known among all castes of Dwarven society, and he eventually amassed enough wealth to open shop in many Dwarven cities. That all changed when the Devils from the Devarian Invasions infiltrated Deephammer, dislodging vast swathes of Dwarves once thought safe in a city far removed from the front-line fighting within Axeld Peaks. Baston understood that his business would not flourish under the constant threat of subterranean wars and thus moved above ground, much to the consternation of his avid followers.
|Baston’s enthusiasm for his product and his will to spread his ale to the masses motivated him to introduce his young son, Colesmith to the inner workings of his enterprise. Colesmith took to his father’s work faithfully, even in the shadow of Baston’s failing health. Age had caught up with the founder and Baston, realizing he had led a good life, left the business in his son’s strong hands; hoping that Colesmith would take his work and expand further. Colesmith has unabashedly aspired to greatness, hoping that eventually all good peoples across Joria will recognize an Alesmith Brewery on sight and the Alesmith dream will come true.|
