Party Like It's 793!
A furore Normannorum libera nos, Domine "From the fury of the Northmen deliver us, O Lord." June 8th 793 forever changed the world. This was the day of the first written account of the raid on the church of Lindisfarne, England. From then on the Vikings raided their way through the world striking fear into the hearts of men. 1,225 years later we will be celebrating this momentous event here at Brimming Horn Meadery on June 8th, 9th and 10th. This will be Delaware's first and only Viking themed event. We will have a full Viking encampment with market. Saturday will feature FULL POURS ONLY. We will NOT be doing samples that day. Our hours will be 12pm - 9pm Friday and Saturday, Sunday 12pm - 4pm.
Joining us for the occasion will be Milton's Cantina Ultima (they will be making pork shoulders and sides throughout the day on Saturday, as well as roasting a pig. The pig will be available around 6pm for all to enjoy.) Delaware's Bastion's Wake and Maryland's Teshaleh will be providing music throughout the day on Saturday. There will be vendors selling their homemade goods as well as our Viking invaders (SOR Events). There will be some workshops and the myths being told throughout the 3 days. Plus, mead maker Jon will be doing a story on both Friday and Saturday evening, which you won't want to miss.
The Vikings will be arriving Friday and setting up camp. Friday and Sunday will have some workshops as well as myth telling. Saturday will have the most going on with food and music as well. For those of you that plan on attending, PLEASE be advised that our parking lot is very small. Think about car pooling or Ubering in to the event. We're very excited to bring this to all of you.
