Ricky and Kelly Klein ’07, ’09 are living the life. No, they don’t have a Manhattan penthouse, they don’t go sailing around the Carribean for vacation, and they haven’t made their fortunes (yet). Rather than leading a life of glamor and riches, these Middlebury graduates manage their own meadery, Groennfell, in nearby Colchester, VT.
Ricky the Meadmaker was recently interviewed by middbeat, the student-run paper at Middlebury College. They asked a lot of great questions, and, not surprisingly, Ricky provided them with abundantly loquacious answers.
Groennfell Meadery is Vermont’s premier craft meadery. Inspired by Old Norse legends, brewed with extraordinary ingredients, Groennfell’s meads are unlike anything you’ve had before. Crisp, clean, and astoundingly drinkable, the only way to explain any one of Groennfell’s meads is to try one yourself.
