Stories from a Bar: Episode 27, Helderberg Meadworks
Have you ever felt like a thirsty Viking with no place to go?
Of course you have! Well have no fear as Helderberg Meadworks in Esperance, New York has you covered. This first time Mead drinker recently sat down with owner Peter Voelker for the podcast to talk about the business of making Mead, Vikings, horns, skulls, and poor fashion choices.
“We certainly have people that come in dressed like Vikings” says Peter as I mention that I regret not having dressed as a Viking for my visit. As we sip on four different meads from the flights Peter poured, he goes on to talk about getting into mead, accelerating the timeline he and his wife had planned for the business, his awesome staff, and his pride in his products.
While Helderberg Meadworks products have been around for several years their Meadhall, built and designed from scratch, has only been open for just over a year with a big anniversary party planned for May 9th. With a fantastic and interesting variety of Meads, and even a rotating mead based cocktail of the month, Helderberg Meadworks is definitely worth the trip if you’re looking to switch things up from your usual brewery or distillery.
