It's not?!  I sounds less than subtle to me.

It is true that most people in the SCA will gladly offer a thirsty traveler
a drink - this is courtesy.  Going from camp to camp LOOKING for a drink
is not.  I trust this is not what you are suggesting.

As for the obligation to accept hospitality, this is often overlooked.  I 
have accepted some pretty gosh-awful homebrew from time to time.  I do,
however, applaud the spirit (if not the spirits).
