Drink like a [...] Viking: The History and Making of MEAD!

By Dave Aronson

Elevator Pitch

Mead is enjoying a resurgence, thanks in part to online games. People have heard of it, and want to know more. They would be entertained to know where it came from (not what most think!), some varieties, and how to make it.


This talk goes over the origins of mead (as far as anyone really knows, in several places, some not usually associated with it), some of the many varieties (including some bizarre modern ones), and the basic process of modern mead-making on a home scale. You will come away with the knowledge you need to get started making mead to impress your friends at your next Twitch-streamed D&D game, or your next Skyrim game!
