New Ennoblement

His Excellency the Elector announces the newest member of the nobility in Ober Bindlestiff. Please, one and all, welcome the von Tap family. The eldest member of the von Tap family was raised to the nobility for a singular accomplishment without peer in this modern realm.

Ritter Horace von Tap invented a means for dispensing beer from a barrel to a mug. In his honor it will be called a 'beer tap'.

Among the singular appurtenances of nobility, Ritter von Tap will be graciously allowed to raise a company of troops for the Army. It is hoped that it will be a cavalry troop because he is a Ritter. Further details will be announced as they come forth.
