This hands-on class will walk you step-by-step through the mead-making process (with plenty of outstanding samples and scrumptious snacks along the way!). We’ll also learn the medicinal qualities of herbs that taste wonderful in meads. At the end of the class, you'll have the skills to make your own organic, locally-grown, herbally-infused mead at home, too!
