A trost is a type of ale brewed in Trostenwald, from which it derives its name. Trosts are popular in the Dwendalian Empire and shipped across the continent as a flagship export of the town.[1]

Description[]

Trosts are notable for being sweeter than typical ales.[1]

History[]

When Trostenwald was founded around 635 PD, farmers discovered that the fertile farmland produced a unique grain and wheat, which lead to a boom of breweries. The unique flavor is variously attributed to the waters of the nearby Ustaloch or an alleged enchantment on the soil dating back to the Age of Arcanum.[1]

By 835 PD, the three largest manufacturers of trosts were the Baumbauch, Husseldorf, and von Brandt families.[1] Around this time, the three families were attempting to stop the use of the name "trost" as a general term for their ale in favor of using the specific family brand names.[2]
