This doesn’t make these people feel adequately bad about themselves, however. To do that, you need to rattle off a list of the who’s who of mead drinkers that they should have heard of.
The movie Thor earned half a billion dollars, not to mention his appearance in other Marvel pictures. You have definitely heard of Thor.
Sorry, no picture of Chris Hemsworth…
Baloney. Everyone had to read Beowulf in school.
Mead is mentioned approximately every fifth word.
For now, it’s the mead ignorant Tolkien geeks who should be ashamed.
Hagrid orders five pints of mead when at the Three Broomsticks Pub in Hogsmeade. Mulled mead, to be precise.
And, on that note…
Ron Weasley is poisoned with the a glass of doctored mead…
Everyone has read or at least heard of Harry Potter. Mead occurs on three or four other occasions in the books.
Maybe you got through school without reading Beowulf. Maybe you don’t go in for that Norse Mythology junk. Maybe you’ve never heard of Marvel Comic Books.
But you have heard of Harry Freakin’ Potter.

Golden apple of Discord is my new favorite mead from Groennfell. The apple combined with the other notes really mixes for a delicious drink that goes down smooth. The longer you roll it on the tongue the better it gets. I usually don't finish a whole bottle but I couldn't help it with this! Do yourself a favor and pick up a case!
This 1 was fantastic! Got 2 bottles alongside a bottle of delicious Heggir! 😋 Golden Apple or Discord is basically Vanir, which is always good, but blended with some rather tasty apple goodness! I thoroughly enjoyed it! If & when it comes back around, I highly recommend grabbing yourself a bottle...or 3! 😅
This one has the intro of Valkyries Choice but has a nice Oak woodsy finish to it. It has a pleasant small too, almost like oak wood barrel and champagne together. Could be the combination with the honey. It’s smooth and delightful!
Although I can't say that this is quite as good this time around as the last time (the maple sweetness wasn't as pronounced as last time), it's still quite good and if you love ginger! I have still enjoyed drinking it.
It is delicious. The spice gives hints of nutmeg and the finish give hints of pumpkin pie, cozy celebrations with good company.
