Go Back in Time with Medieval Mead & the MD Renn Fest

Take a trip back in time with the Maryland Renaissance Festival and Linganore’s Medieval Mead. Recreate the feeling of merriment of the Middle Ages with our Mead created in the tradition of the noble honey wines of the times. A sweet honey wine made with 100% real honey, Linganore’s Medieval Mead is the Official Mead of the Renaissance Festival, the second largest running Renn Fest in the United States. The Renn Fest, outside of Annapolis, Maryland, runs from August 24 – October 20.

Take a goblet of Mead with you as you stroll through the 27-acre Village of Revel Grove this year, and marvel as the woods come to life with the sights and sounds of a period known for its revelry and festivity. With more than 200 professional performers, armored jousting on magnificent steeds, and streets filled with village characters it truly will take you back in time. The food and crafts are always incredible, and nothing goes better with a giant smoked turkey leg than Mead! Regulars at the Renn Fest have also concocted mixtures of Mead with other Linganore wines and drinks, which you can find at the Renn Fest, or we have listed a few at the bottom of the page. It’s a well-kept secret that Mead is delicious warmed and you can even try it with cinnamon and cloves. 

If you can’t make it to the Renaissance Festival or the winery, or you just want to pick up a bottle quickly, head to one of the liquor stores below. If you don’t see it in the liquor store near you, ask the store to carry it for you – as long as they know they have a customer for it, they will most likely bring it in so you don’t have to go far to enjoy it!
