The College of St Bartholomew (aka St Bart's) is an SCA college in the Barony of Stormhold, Kingdom of Lochac. It was originally started in 1986 at the University of Melbourne, but fell into dormancy in 1998. Circa 2004 it was restarted by a group of keen students from the university who have great hopes for its success, though it's still very much under the protective wings of the wider Stormhold community.

It was named after St Barthlomew with the belief that he was the patron saint for beekeeping. It is simple really. Bees make honey. Honey makes mead. Mead makes everyone happy!

Of course, future research has failed to find such patronage but no-one really cares about that!
