Mead is the newest old thing! Most likely the first fermented beverage on the planet, alcohol from honey has been made by essentially every civilization on earth, during all epochs of time, dating back at least 8,500 years and likely much earlier. There is strong evidence that Mead was enjoyed by our Paleolithic ancestors. In the last ten years, the number of licensed meaderies in the U.S. has exploded from about 30 to well over 200, with meads ranging from 5.8% alcohol to 21.8% alcohol; dry to sweet; sparkling to still; and flavors including fruits, spices, flowers, and chili pepper! There is a Mead for every food pairing and a Mead for every occasion. Whether your favorite regular poison is wine, beer, cider or sake, there is a Mead for you! Curious? Come: learn and taste the lore and magic of Mead!
