What are the French (specifically, the Alsace region) version of pubs called?
What are some typical names?
I used the search terms "pub drink name sign history France Alsace Europe medieval" in various combinations. I did find an interesting site on Medieval drinks, and another on Medieval words and terms:
I have a fantasy novel in which one of the characters mentions going to the Knotted Roses. That's the only mention of such institutions in this book, but it's nagging at me. Also, if this novel sells (hopehopehope) and there are sequels - or if the novel is revised - I would be more likely to include additional references if I am more confident and knowledgeable in the French tradition.
Thank you. Since this involves alcohol I anticipate an enthusiastic participation. :-)
