Bragwyr, Clan of the Stein
Clan Bragwyr (BRAG-wir) are known for their liquids. They are responsible for brewing the famous Varic ales, lagers, and meads, as well as whiskies from imported barley.
Additionally, the Bragwyr Clan is responsible for the few Varic alchemists, who may be skilled enough to make potent acids and antitoxins. 
It is rumored that they also have the knowledge to make poisons, though this in generally considered extremely dishonorable and frowned upon in Var culture. There are also a fair number of Bragwyr coopers, for obvious reasons.
Due to the dependence on outside resources, the Bragwyr deal with the Llanastr extensively to trade with Humans or others who grow crops and herbs
The Bragwyr tend to be on the large and burly side for Var, and favor reddish hair and merry green eyes, with fleshy and rosy skin, and tend to prefer riotous colors in their clothing. The menfolk of the Clan pay no attention to facial hair in particular, with some wearing beards or goatees or mustaches, or going clean shaven.
The Bragwyr are rarely serious, and are among the friendliest of Varic Clans, at least once they've downed a barrel or two. Fortunately they are often too drunk to form close friendships, though they usually have many drinking buddies.
All Bragwyr adults vote on their Ceidwad, who serves for a term of 30 years. Alchemists rarely take on this level on responsibility, feeling it takes too much away from their other work, but the brewers have quite a bit of time to dedicate to the task.
