The Viking Alchemists

Located just off Marietta Square, the Viking Alchemists are purveyors of a wide array of honey wine varietals ranging from dry to sweet. Mead has been a somewhat lost art in today’s culture, but they are bringing it back. A tasting at the meadery includes at least 10 different types of meads, with something appealing to everyone. Mead offers a welcome change to wine, spirits or beer with a flavor all its own.

The Viking Alchemist will be doing sampling of four of their year-round meads: Solifaction, Ethereal, Antinomy and Bliss
