Celebrate St. Paddy’s Day like royalty with ancient nectar

glass of mead

Mead (aka honey wine) might be the newest popular drink among hipsters, but evidence suggests the beverage, made from water, yeast and fermented honey, dates as far back as 7000 B.C.

The flavors of the “nectar of the gods” are as diverse as its many uses. With added spices and healing herbs, mead was used medicinally in England and associated with immortality and magical powers in Greek culture as well as in popular folktales, such as “Beowulf.”

Find this sweet, fruity drink at Apis Mead and Winery in Carnegie, where you can enjoy live music, games and food trucks.
