Rejoice!  The spring solstice in late March is a time to celebrate the dawning of a new, warmer season full of new life, hope and optimism.

Join us on Saturday March 23 between 2pm and 5 pm to taste the delightfully different Meads offered by our friends from Alberta's own Chinook Arch Meadery near Okotoks.   Many people are under the impression that mead is a beer or ale. Mead is actually a     wine and the primary fermentable is honey. In beer the primary fermentable is sugar created from the starches in grains or cereals which are first converted by the malting process. The confusion is likely because of Hollywood’s representation of mead being swilled from tankards, drinking horns or large goblets. Nowadays we prefer to sip mead from wine glasses although popular Medieval re-enactments frequently use well-crafted drinking horns!

The varieties we  have range from Blackcurrant,  Buckwheat and Ginger to exotic elixirs such as Guinevere's Elixir, Fire & Spice, Melissa's Gold, Classic & Bochet styles.   There is no charge to attend, but kindly register your name to let us know how many people to expect.  Climb out of the winter doldrums and experience something truly golden!
