Surprise! More details coming soon... As always, our Certified Meadiacs group gets first crack at new releases, so go check it out if you haven't joined yet!
Every year, 48 hours before Thanksgiving, we get panicked e-mails from folks who desperately need Nordic Farmhouse, our wild-fermented cranberry mead.
This year, we've got you covered!
Buckland Mead - our fan favorite summer seasonal - is back on draft and in cans starting tomorrow, Wednesday, June 13th!
It's a light, crushable mead with lemon and green tea, perfect for summer. It'll be available wherever fine craft meads are sold until our annual WTF is Up With Tom Bombadil party in October!
Release events at the Mead Hall tomorrow and Cheese & Wine Traders on Friday!
Put on your Bright Blue Jacket and pull up your Yellow Boots, Meadiacs… Buckland is back, and it's better than ever!
We're throwing a big party for Buckland/May Day/Tolkien Nerdom with special foods, outdoor drinking, and the very first CAN RELEASE OF BUCKLAND!
Come celebrate spring in all its glory on Wednesday, May 3rd with a pint Buckland Mead. Check out the Facebook event for more info!
As the ground thaws,
and snows melt,
and green things come
back to the land,
springs into being.
Made from Fresh Lemon,
Green Rooibos, and
100% Wildflower Honey,
it’s brewed one day a year
and is probably the world’s
most refreshing mead.
This year has been full of tremendous happenings around the meadery.
We built a Mead Hall within our current space, started serving food, released the final year-round offerings from Havoc Mead, completed the transition to cans for all of our products, doubled our staff, sponsored Vermont's first Renaissance Faire, and much more.
So, could 2017 even compare? You bet your hornless helmet it can.
If that's not enough, you should know that we're keeping our biggest surprise under our belt for now... more details coming soon.
Ricky the Meadmaker loves you very, very much.
Of course, Ricky the Meadmaker loves you each and every day of the year, but he gets so full of joy and affection during the holidays that he can barely contain himself.
So, to keep Ricky from exploding with pure excitement, we let him come up with a gift for you every week between Thanksgiving and Christmas.
This year, that means that you get Five Special Presents.
And, even better, it all starts this Friday!
Week 1 (November 25th and 26th) - Every year on Black Friday we treat our Meadiacs to a First Taste of Winter Warmer, our seasonal Wassail! This year, to sweeten the deal, we're also releasing our Seasonal Collectible Mugs which come with a $1 pour of Winter Warmer!
Week 2 (December 2nd and 3rd) - We're hosting an Indoor Cornhole Championship with prizes and special drinks!
Week 3 (December 10th) - It's our biggest bash of the year, Midwinter Fest! Live music, Viking buffet, bonfires, the works!
Week 4 (December 16th and 17th) - Not to be outdone by Havoc Mead's All Female Comedy Show on Dec. 16th, Ricky is releasing a batch of Mannaz on Lees, his three-year-old mead. Are they going to be snow-packed for an unparalleled, almost surreal drinking experience? Yes. Yes they are.
Week 5 (December 23rd) - Treat yourself and loved ones to our amazing Viking Hanukkah Dinner! That's right; Ricky is making a complete Hanukkah Meal with all Viking-era ingredients. We recommend getting reservations for this one by calling us at 802-497-2345.
Snow! We had snow in the mountains! You know what that means? Winter is almost here!
And, of course, Winter Warmer can't be far behind!
As usual, we're going to save our release as a Black Friday treat. But, if you absolutely can't wait to get your hands on some Wassail, we'll announce in the coming weeks which bars have a sneak peek for you.
On November 1st, a handful of kegs will be released into the wild. You'll be able to find Winter Warmer at a few select bars, restaurants, and growler stations throughout Vermont.
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.
