Given that mead typically begins with honey, you may think of it as a particularly sweet libation. But the reality is that mead can take on the characteristics of wine, champagne, or beer depending on how it's prepared and the flavors with which it is infused. Meduseld Meadery, which just opened in May 4 miles away from Millers Crossing in Millersville, is on a mission to educate the public one glass of mead at a time.

"Meduseld" literally means "mead hall" in Old English, and, traditionally, a mead hall was basically where all aspects of daily life took place. From weddings to wakes, old-timey mead halls were at the center of it all. Meduseld Meadery strives to be the same type of watering hole (sans the wakes). It offers many inventive pours, like a champagne mead crafted using orange blossom honey and chardonnay juice. Plan a night out at the Meadery to taste-test some of its unique meads.
