Learn about the history of mead, taste two varieties of locally made mead (manufactured only one mile away from the CSC theatre!), and enjoy partying like it’s 1773 in preparation for a night of laughs and revelry. Admission to this preshow event is included with your ticket to the September 29th performance of She Stoops to Conquer at 8pm. Click here to purchase tickets to the play. We’d appreciate an RSVP also if you plan to participate in the tasting (adults only). Please RSVP for the tasting here.
What is mead, you might ask? Mead is an alcoholic beverage made by fermenting honey and water with the help of yeast. Learn more here.
Charm City Meadworks is Baltimore’s one and only meadery, located in the Mount Vernon neighborhood. Stop by their taproom on Biddle Street for a laugh and a brew, and check out their website for more information!
