Wizarding fans, join Lilly Belle Meads as we pair up with local artist, Diane Sypniewski to bring you an enchanted evening of Meads & Masterpieces. Diane will guide you through the creation of this work of art while enjoying locally brewed craft meads and beverages at Lilly Belle Meads' Potions Bar. At the Potions Bar, you'll have the opportunity to learn how to mix some classic potions and the ability to create your own.

So grab your fellow wizard or witch, your dress robes and wands and head down to quaint Lancaster for the evening and celebrate one of the greatest wizards in history. Seating is limited. Your ticket includes all painting supplies, artistic instruction and a chance to become a Potions Master.

Lilly Belle Meads will also have additional appetizers and snacks available for purchase.

Doors open at 6pm, so you can have time at the Potions Bar.

Artistic instruction starts at 7pm.

This event is open to students that are of age to begin their formal wizarding studies. For you muggles, that would be ages 11 and older. To purchase 'student' tickets, please stop by Lilly Belle Meads or call (716) 462-9804.

Making their debut at the Meadery, we’re happy to welcome this contemporary style band! Check out more about them at




Lilly Belle Meads is a farm meadery located in the Village of Lancaster, NY, owned and operated by Patricia and Joe Marshall.  
The farm meadery’s story began over 14 years ago, when the Marshall’s first purchased winemaking and brewing kits.  
After much experimentation with ingredients and brewing techniques, Patricia thought to utilize honey, as the base for their fermented beverages.  Just as a grape absorbs its terrain or terroir, affecting the taste of the wine,  honey reflects the flavors from its surrounding floral environment, contributing to the body and character within the meads.  As beekeepers, farmers, educators and parents, the Marshall’s are committed to promoting and practicing environmentally safe farming and production practices.  Lilly Belle Meads strives to create awareness about the honeybee crisis and promotes education on beekeeping topics. This family farm meadery revels in the satisfaction that their meads incorporate not only a partnership of the owners, but also with Mother Nature herself.
