Brewer’s scoop (Period)

A brewer’s scoop is a tool used by beer brewers for sampling the mash, consisting of a bucket at the end of a long pole.  The brewer’s scoop is a period charge, dating to 1548 in Vigil Raber’s Armorial of the Arlberg Brotherhood of St. Christopher, fo.91; it’s also in the episcopal arms of Peugelberg, late 16th C. [BSB Cod.Icon 333:76].

The brewer’s scoop is palewise by default, with the bucket in chief.  See also hammer.

Philip Berenger de Greylonde bears as a badge:  In saltire a brewer’s scoop sable and a brewer’s scoop Or.
