Fafnir

Traditional Mead - semi sweet and easy drinking.

Fafnir was known to be a dwarf with a powerful arm and fearless soul and so was set to the task of guarding his father’s house of glittering gold and flashing gems. Fafnir killed Hreidmar to get all the treasure for himself. Soon after he became very ill-natured and greedy so he went into the wilderness to keep his fortune and eventually turned in a dragon while watching over his hoard.

Now Regin also wanted the gold for himself and set his foster-son Sigurd to the task of killing the dragon. Regin told Sigurd to dig a pit and lie in wait under the trail Fafnir used to get to a stream daily. As Sigurd dug, Odin appeared and advised Sigurd to dig more trenches for the blood of Fafnir to run into.

On the deathbed of Fafnir he tells Sigurd that all who possess the gold will be fated to die.

In response, Sigurd replies that all men must one day die and it is the dream of many men to be wealthy until that dying day, so he will take the gold without fear.
