St. Lucia’s flood - Online Tasting

The second Dutch Mass Online Tasting. This time we’ll remember the ’St. Lucia’s flood ’. ;)

The St. Lucia’s flood (Sint-Luciavloed) was a storm tide that affected the Netherlands and Northern Germany on 14 December 1287 (the day after St. Lucia Day) when a dike broke during a storm, killing approximately 50,000-80,000 people in the sixth largest flood in recorded history. Much land was permanently flooded in what is now the Waddenzee and IJsselmeer. It especially affected the north of the Netherlands, particularly Friesland. The island of Griend was almost destroyed, only ten houses were left standing. The name Zuiderzee dates from this event, as the water had merely been a shallow inland lake when the first dikes were being built, but rising North Sea levels created the "Southern Sea" when floods including this flood came in.

At this dark day we’ll drink any dark beer we want, and share our thoughts online at: http://www.ratebeer.com/forums/digitale-massa-tasting-2_249200.htm
