A travelogue of my 2016 Make Mead Like a Viking book tour.
I’m excited to be headed to the UK! I’ve got several events planned in the short time I’ll be there. First, I’ll be heading to Manchester in northern England for a brew day and book signing at Beer Nouveau. England’s smallest commercial brewery, Beer Nouveau is my kind of brewery. They eschew modern conventions and look to recreate traditional “heritage” beer styles.
A troubleshooting guide to fermenting mead with wild yeast.
While I don't celebrate Yule, per se, I'm very interested in how early European cultures celebrated this time of the year. For peoples in Northern European climates, with the long dark and cold winters, this time of year was a time of celebration.
