Find Hotels in The Brass Monkey, St. Pete Beach (FL)
Reviewed June 8, via mobile A good pub. It is said that the stack of cannon balls alongside each gun were arranged in a pyramid on a brass plate to save space, the plate being called a monkey. In very cold weather, the story goes, the cannon balls would shrink and they would fall off the stack. The whole story is full of logical holes: would they pile shot into a pyramid? What the written evidence shows is that the term brass monkey was quite widely distributed in the US from about the middle of the nineteenth century and was applied in all sorts of situations, not just weather.
