Bos Meadery is ready to maraud headlong into 2018 with our 5th annual Mead & Metal Fest being held Saturday, January 6th, 2018 from 5-10p, this time in our very own Mead Hall! We are once again proud to present a brutal array of Mead and Metal at this Viking-themed winter festival.

An awesome local line-up will unleash a torrent of sonic mayhem: Lords of the Trident, Birth of Tragedy, HellMuff, Cunning Like Cobras and your emcee Peter DeVault!

There will be many varieties of mead on tap, including our new non-alcoholic ginger mead, beer, pizza, and as is tradition there will be brutal poetry readings between sets, so prepare to be disturbed!

Metal and Viking costumes encouraged!!

$8 Cover.

Emcee: Peter DeVault

5:15p - Cunning Like Cobras

"Thrash Punk!! fast, bold and certainly unhinged when it comes to describing the world around us by means of mythological/esoteric lyrics, thunderous drums&crushing bass tone"

6:15p - HellMuff

"Unforgiving music in the key of truth. "

7:15p - Birth of Tragedy

"Midwest Metal This is what corn would sound like if it could scream when the combine rips through it."

8:30p - Lords of the Trident

"Our metal's so pure that only diamonds can scratch it, and usually the diamonds are the ones that end up getting hurt in the end. Our amps are so loud, Manowar knocked on our door and asked us to "please turn down". You think you're bad? While you're watching our sweep picking wondering how we bend space-time to fit all the notes in, we'll punch you right in the face without missing a beat. If you like battle, bloodshed, axes, fire, and losing limbs, then mosh your way to the front row and receive your free ticket to Valhalla. If you don’t like these things – too bad. We’re playing anyway, and we’ll make sure to steal your girlfriend in the process."
