After hundreds of hours of analysis, compliance, and review, we are so excited to announce the Drink Your Values Project.
This new site is an interactive, fully transparent, deep analysis of everything from the benefits we offer to our energy use to the way we support our mission.
For one fun fact, did you know that it takes as much energy to brew a single can of craft beer as it does to make an entire case of Valkyrie's Choice?
Midwinter Fest is almost here!
With flagons of mead, bonfires, hot Winter Warmer, and trenchers of all-you-can eat Viking Food, this is our biggest party of the year.
If you make it to just one event at the new Mead Hall, this should be it. As always, there's no charge to attend and all ages are welcome.

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.
