I love AleHorn's products. I drink from one of their drinking horn tankards and comb my beard with one of their horn combs. I was tipsy with Viking joy when I read this great review of Make Mead Like a Viking. Very thorough and well-written. Clearly they did their research. Hope you enjoy as much as I did!
