1600ís - Discovery

Discovery. Schemes. Beer.

The world was no longer small nor flat for Europeans, and this got them excited. They laid out maps, fitted out ships, and filled up their tankards. After all, finding out there's more lands in the world than you thought is cause to celebrate. Companies were established to take advantage of the new opportunities, and trade and travel really began to expand, as did the amount of time at sea. So captains were warned to make sure the food and the beer don't run out. Even the Pilgrims were grim when their supply ran out just before landfall!
