Viking Nerds Store Highlights

This is a totem stick, also known as a magic stick. Vikings and other ancient cultures passed these down for generations as they were covered with heirloom yeast strains originally captured from the wild. They were used to start new batches of mead and ale and were thought to contain magical powers because of how quickly they could initiate fermentation, leading to a flavorful, boozy beverage.
