It’s been known by many names: “Nectar of the Gods,” “Ambrosia,” “Balché,” and “Mead.” Regardless of what it was called, this golden liquid is believed to be the oldest alcoholic beverage ever brewed. In this second installment of our Ancient Echoes series, you’ll not only learn about this mysterious drink’s place in history. You will also make your own beverage through an immersive, hands-on brewing experience not unlike its origins at the start of the Holocene 12,000 years ago.
All materials will be provided. Tickets include two drinks per person (alcoholic and non-alcoholic options available) and light refreshments. This event is 21+.
