If you haven’t heard the word “mead” since that time you read Beowulf in high school, we’re right there with you. But if you’ve wondered what the stuff tasted like ever since that first encounter, you might want to pop on up to Camp Hill this weekend to celebrate the grand opening of Larsen Meadworks, located at 3617 Gettysburg Road.

The creation of Nathan Larsen, the namesake Meadworks will employ an “innovative, free-spirited, no-holds-barred approach to make beautiful dessert wines and dry bruts.” Highlights include dessert wines like Scarlet, which is fermented with a base of pure maple syrup and enhanced with varietal red grapes for a wine that’s similar to a port or a sherry, and Gold, which is also fermented from a base of pure maple syrup but with apple and a small amount of raisin before being oaked.

For bruts, Larsen will debut Jelsa – a dry sparkling wine with a fruity, tropical nose thanks to fermented honey and passion fruit – and Aura, a similarly dry sparkling wine boasting a fruity character thanks to strawberry, rhubarb, and honey layered over dry honey.

Welcome Jelsa and Aura to the flight…
