This is our last week as a full restaurant! But, thanks to substantial delays from the government shutdown, we're going to be open as a tasting room for at least another month!!!
Our new hours, starting the week of February 4, 2019, will be Fridays 4-9 and Saturdays 12-8. We'll still have a small menu and plenty of mead on draft!
After five amazing years in Colchester, we're going to be moving the meadery.
The Mead Hall has been so important to so many people over the years that we're throwing one last hoorah and pulling out all the stops.
Ricky and Kelly will be opening their private stock of early Groennfell releases, there will be all-you-can-eat pork shoulder, a few special guests, and toasts throughout the day to all the amazing people who have made the Mead Hall what it is.
As always, the event is free to attend and family friendly!

As we get ready for the move to our new location, we’re celebrating all month long!
No matter what the Mead Hall has meant to you, it’s happening this month.
Never miss a board game night or a Thirsty Thorsday? Don’t worry; we’re running them right to the day we move!
Love our seasonal meads? We’ve got both the Winter Warmer Throw-Down and the Fire on Snow release!
We’ll have Metal Shows, Cavern, Family Day, a Viking Craft Fair, a comedy show, and much more! For a list of all upcoming events, check out our calendar and follow us on Facebook!
And we have one big surprise waiting for February, so stay tuned!
As many of you have heard by now, we’re going to be moving to our forever meadery! We could not be more excited (and overwhelmed) by the move, but there is a small sadness as well.
After five wonderful years, we’re going to be closing our tasting room and restaurant in Colchester.
There is no question that this was the hardest decision we had to make about growing. From the Firkin Friday Friends to the Isole Dinner Club to Cavern and Harvest Fest, we couldn’t imagine our company without our incredible Meadiacs popping in every week for a pint, a brat, a board game, and a few hours of philosophical conversation.
Before you let out your first sob, there are three pieces of consolation.
First, we have an entire month of going-away parties planned starting this weekend with Family Day and then the Mad Tea Party on New Year’s Eve at the Mead Hall! And we have two events every weekend until the end of January.
Second, we’re taking the Mead Hall mobile!!! We’re going to be setting up encampments throughout the state every month. If you can’t come to the Mead Hall, the Mead Hall will come to you. More details coming soon!
Third, we’re already looking for a forever home for the Mead Hall. There are some promising locations, so stay tuned.
Thank you. Thank you. Thank you for all of your years of support.
We can’t wait to see what the future holds!

In which Ricky the Meadmaker makes a big announcement at Midwinter Fest 2018!
It's finally time to announce this year's Gifts of the Meadmaker!
At Midwinter Fest 2018 we're going to have a whole bunch of wonderful specials running throughout the day.
This year, the whole Midwinter Fest Feast is all-you-can eat with a special discount for our little Vikings!
As always, we'll have our limited run Winter Warmer Mugs with a first fill for $1.
For those who want to enjoy their Winter Warmer at home as well, we're going to be selling 32 oz. squealers with no deposit all day.
You've been waiting all year, and it's finally here... It's our 5th annual Midwinter Fest!
This year we're outdoing ourselves with all-you-can-eat pork shoulder, a special tapping of Winter Warmer, bonfires, mulled mead, and much more!
We'll be running specials all day, including the release of our 2018 Winter Mugs and a rare opportunity to take home a bottle of Winter Warmer.
Plus, we just booked My Mother's Moustache to perform live during the afternoon and when we light the bonfires!
Come feast with us on December 8th, and learn more here!
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.
