Thorin Stavinoha is the brewmaster of Thorin's Viking Mead. Established in 2010, Thorin's meads, cider, and wines are favorites among faire-goers throughout Central Texas.
Mead is an alcoholic beverage fermented from honey. A favorite of the Vikings, the recipes used by Thorin are from his family's records and some go back to the year 600AD.
Thorin added cider to the lineup of beverages made by TVM. A delicious and refreshing drink by itself, but when mixed 50/50 with mead the result is a "bee sting."
Thorin's is produced in Central Texas, and is the culmination of Thorin's obsession with renaissance festivals and the lifestyle of those who attend.
Each batch of mead or cider takes months to produce and is still hand crafted and often times hand bottled by Thorin himself and his dedicated team of valkyries.
All products made by TVM are hand crafted and made with the upmost attention to detail. From our brews made for large fairs to the specialty casks and bottles made in exclusive small batches.
“For the honor of my family, and the glory of my patrons.” - Thorin
It is even more delicious than kissing Thorin himself.
Fan of Thorin's Viking Mead
“I still believe that the greatest part of the mead making experience, is not in the creation, but when you finally get to sit back and watch people smiling, laughing,and spending time with their friends.”
I love Thorin's Mead, and frankly it should come in bigger bottles. My mug demands bigger bottles.

"I find Thorin to be a good adversary on the archery field, and a fine companion while drinking."

Drink is good! When not drink me sad. Drink make better, taste like honey and happiness!
They say a man's passion can be measured by the love he puts into his craft. If that is the case, Thorin is indeed quite a lot taller in passion than he is in height.

It shouldn't be too hard to find Thorin and his clan at Sherwood Forrest Faire.
