Due to the beautiful snow falling in various quantities all over the state of Vermont, we're extending our Viking Hanukkah Dinner to include Thursday as well!
If you have a reservation for Wednesday and you are unable to make it, we'll be happy to reschedule you for Thursday.
If you simply couldn't make it on Wednesday, but Thursday works for you, you are also welcome to make a reservation! Either way, give us a call at 802-497-2345.
[Insert stupid dad joke about how there were only enough latkes for one night but, lo...]
It truly is a Hanukkah Miracle! Enjoy the snow, enjoy the First Night, and we'll see you tomorrow or Thursday!
In which Ricky the Meadmaker takes his annual Midwinter Ramble.
Many of you have been to Midwinter Fest before, so all we need to say is:
This year is going to be bigger than ever.
For those of you who haven't been before, you're in for a pretty amazing experience.
Midwinter Fest is based on the Scandinavian celebration of Midvinter or Jul. We're talking candles, bonfires, and an outrageous amount of food.
This year, Ricky is in the kitchen, and he's making 3 ox shoulders as well as 120 pounds of pork shoulder. (There will also be many vegetarian options if you're of a non-carnivorous persuasion.)
Chef is going to be in the kitchen all day making special Midwinter Feasts. You will not be disappointed.
Not only will we be running drink specials all day (see below), but we're also going to tap a keg of Winter Warmer 2016 so you can enjoy side-by-side tastings.
It's the release of our 2017 Wassail Mugs! Not only are we running our most popular deal of the year: buy a mug and your first pour of Winter Warmer is $1, but we're also running the same offer for Ale Horns!
What else? How about case deals on Autumn Spice and Buckland!
Come early and stay all day! There's always a big Wassail toast at 7 o'clock which you won't want to miss!
See you Saturday!

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.
