Mead is alcohol which is produced by fermenting honey. It is the oldest alcoholic beverage in the world. The Ethiopian Kings drank it, Beowulf drank it. Aristotle, Arjuna, Shakespeare...they all drank it. And so did your great-great-great-great- fore mommas and papas. The agricultural revolution came around and made grapes and grain easier to harvest for wine and beer. Mead regrettably, was ignored for something easier and cheaper to produce. Today mead is making a comeback.
Our Meads are Different. Lighter bodied, honey forward but balanced, we make most of our meads with ale yeast, a 1-to-4 California Honey to San Diego Spring Water Ratio, and an element like oak or lactobacillus to balance the finish. We want our meads to drink like a refreshing ale or invigorating sparkling wine, we want them to spread mirth, and arouse people to the beauty of life.
Reconnect with history, place, community and quality. Every glass of mead contains the essence of over 200,000 flowers. Doesn't get any more local than that!
