No beer? Abandon fort!

1553 is the date that the history books record as the last year that Raseborg (Raasepori in Finnish) Castle was occupied and then left to fall into ruin. This was in part due to a shift in geopolitical balance with the establishment of Helsinki in 1550, and the fact that rising land had altered the seashore, making the fortress inaccessible by boat.

Newly discovered documents record a short-lived attempt to revive the castle in 1556. It was reoccupied for two years, until during the beginning of May, a portion of the structure collapsed, including the cellar which held its supply of beer.

In the Middle Ages, the loss of a beer cellar was a serious matter.

According to Western Uusimaa Provincial Museum Director Dan Lindholm, the daily beer ration for each inhabitant of a medieval castle was four and a half litres. The quality of the beer was another matter. That depended on social status. The castle bailiff quaffed a strong, full-bodied brew, while lowly workers made do with something reminiscent of modern-day pilsner.
