Mead.  Mysterious. Misunderstood.  Come and discover the world's oldest alcoholic beverage enjoying a Renaissance in the 21st century!  Not made from grapes at all, this fermented honey beverage is a delightful alternative to wines, ciders, beer and has a fascinating history and folkloric appeal that involves Vikings and Pagan rituals.  If you enjoy supporting #YEGlocal, come and join us as we learn all about Meads that are produced right here in Alberta by passionate folk and hard working local bees!

We will taste samples from Chinook Arch Meadery, Grey Owl, Fallen Timber flavoured with various infusions of spices, flowers, fruits and herbs.  As Mead is ofen referred to as "Nectar of the Gods" and drank during seasonal celebrations of nature, it's only fitting that we enjoy welcoming the Spring Solstice with a Mead Tasting!

Some light snacks will be served.  Space is limited. Reserve and pay for your seat early!
