Novice meadmakers are invited to participate in an event designed to encourage you to start, experiment, or hone your skills. In preparation for the mead making-sharing event during the 2013 Philadelphia Honey Festival, Wyck Historic House, Garden and Farm invites you to start brewing now!  Ultimately you will share the results of your labors during the festival.
