Spring has arrived and the Meadery is Buzzing
Thank you for following along with all of the Meadery happenings. We have several things to share with you. We still have a few spaces available for the next Painting Palooza at the Meadery THIS Sunday, March 26th at 2:00 PM. The cost is $35 and we will be painting a fun welcome sign. Contact us right away to reserve your spot.
Earlier this month the Mazer Cup International mead competition was held in Colorado. This is the largest mead only competition in the world! We entered several of our meads and we were thrilled to find out that Sweet Heat took home a Silver medal in it's category. There were 400 commercial entries in several categories. We were not able to attend the event this year but from everything we saw it looks like it was a great event and we are excited to see how the mead industry is growing.
If you consider yourself a foodie who likes to spend time in the kitchen you should check out our newest addition to the shop, The Art of Mead Tasting and Food Pairing, by Chrissie Manion Zaerpoor. The book includes 44 food recipes and 10 dessert recipes, each with mead pairings, 14 mead cocktail recipes and 60 sidebars featuring individual meads, meaderies, and meadmakers. With 345 photos you will not be disappointed. We can't wait to start cooking!
