Made in Virginia Series: All About Mead featuring Hilltop Berry Farm and Winery

June 18, 2020 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Thursday, June 18th
6:00pm – 7:00pm

The UVA Club of DC is excited to partner with Hill Top Berry Farm and Winery for a fun and educational virtual conversation on what is believed to be the world’s oldest alcoholic beverage – mead!

Hill Top specializes in Authentic Honey Meads which are ancient alcoholic beverages made from fermenting honey. They make Viking style mead, also called the “Nectar of the Gods” by the Greeks, Cyser, once enjoyed by the Anglo Saxons, a Roman style pyment, along with other meads such as Perry, Metheglins, and Melomels from all corners of the ancient world. Owners Gregory and Kimberly Pugh will guide us through the history of mead and how their business came to flourish in Blue Ridge Mountains, popular pairings, how they come up with their unique flavors, and an audience Q&A after. One lucky attendee will win a bottle of their choosing from Hill Top shipped to his/her home! *Attendee must reside within a state they can ship in.* We hope to have to join us! Skol and Wahoowa!

Register here!
