Join us at the Mead Hall for the most spectacular Black Friday!
Are we open at 4 AM? No! Absolutely Not! Are we going to have "Door Buster Deals?" No. We're not doing that either.
We are going to be offering ludicrous deals throughout the day. Here's just a small sampling:
Buy 6 or more bottles of Honey Wine or Winter Warmer, get a free wine bottle tote. From where? Who knows! Come early and get a nice one from Napa Valley, come later and get a broken one from Price Chopper.
You want more? Show us your Black Friday Costco receipt and get a sympathy hug with your four free samples!
Already tired of Christmas music? We'll be playing Tom Waits and Hozier all day for some reason!
And probably so much more! Check out the Facebook event here.
Winter Warmer - our most beloved mead - is finally coming out in bottles this year!
Although it's dropping around the state next week, we thought that our dearest Meadiacs deserved a preview at the Mead Hall this weekend (Friday & Saturday, Nov. 10 & 11).
Check out the event here and be the first to get your hands on this amazing Wassail!
Did you know that we're collaborating with ourselves to sponsor the Steampunk Expo?
That's right! Groennfell and Havoc are teaming up with Vermont Gatherings to bring you Vermont's very first Steampunk Expo!!!
Go get your tickets right now!
Think this Thursday Fun Fact is too macabre? Join us on Saturday for the Feast of the Goat and tell us all about it!
This Saturday we’re hosting the Feast of the Goat at the Mead Hall, and we are outrageously excited!
Every bite of food we’re preparing comes from a Vermont Farm, so we thought it would great to tell you a little bit about the Star of the Show: Nathaniel Stratton.
Nathaniel is an integral part of the operations at Putting Down Roots in South Royalton. He lives right there on the farm with his beloved goat herd.
Here’s what Nathaniel has to say about his practices in his own words:
“All the goats are Alpine goats and mixes. I pick up bucklings from dairy farms throughout the state as they're born in the spring.
“They're bottle-fed milk from local dairies until they go out on pasture in mid-May.
“I take them on walks before they go out on pasture to get their rumens used to the fresh grass. They are part of a multi-species group that I am using intensive rotational grazing practices with to increase my soil and forage quality.
“I move them at least once a day and love to just hang out with them after I do.”
Nathaniel will not only be joining us for The Feast, but will also be bringing some live goats along to talk about the practices that go into sustainably raising meat animals up here in Vermont!
Join us for Harvest Fest on September 30th, 2017!
Calling all Tolkien Nerds! Friday, October 13th is our 3rd Annual WTF Is Up With Tom Bombadil Party, and it's going to be our best one yet!
We will have a special menu inspired by the books, lots of nerdy discussions, and deals on our Tolkien inspired mead, Buckland.
Go wash up your yellow boots, dust off your blue jacket, and check out the Facebook event right now!
Harvest Fest is just a little over a week away, and while your heart must quicken at the very sound of the words “Harvest Fest,” we thought we should tell you a few reasons why you’re so excited.
First, Ricky and Clayton are collaborating in the kitchen to bring you works of Viking Gourmet that you never thought possible. All of our produce is coming from our friends at Lewis Creek Farm, and it is going to be absolutely nuts.
Second, there’s going to be a good showing from Vermont Ren Faire with special promotions for their brand new events!
Third, we’re going to do a huge toast with the folks from AleHorn in honor of our troth to be the first Mead Hall in America where you can buy horn tankards!
In more exciting news, we just got word: Our horns are completed and are being loaded onto a longship as we write this! They will be landing at the Mead Hall just in time for Harvest Fest.
Half of them are already sold, and while we might have a few left to sell at the event, you don’t want to be the only Viking drinking out of a pint glass… so click here to pre-order yours right now!
Harvest Fest: Saturday, September 30th, 11:30 am - 9:00 pm at Groennfell Meadery.
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.
