The Need for Mead

Recently we added cider and perry styles and continuing on that trend we've added mead styles. You might have heard of mead if you read Beowulf but you might not have ever tried it. If you don't know mead is a honey wine. Often it is made with fruit and it can be made with spices as well. Some meads are sweet and some are dry. They can range in alcohol from your typical beer to a wine.

You don't need to be a hero of the Geats to make or enjoy mead. If you have the equipment to make beer you should have everything you need to make mead. It just takes a lot of honey, yeast, patience and imagination. We look forward to all the great mead recipes.

Hat tip to Muddy for his feedback that helped get the ball rolling on adding these styles. We're listening!
