Mead from Meridian Hive
This year’s Texas Mead Fest will feature seven meaderies and wineries from all over the state that will present samples of their creations to the public. The participating meaderies/wineries include Blessed Bee Winery, Dancing Bee Winery, Enchanted Manor, Meridian Hive, Mystic Oak, Rohan Meadery and Texas Mead Works. In addition to sampling mead from participating meaderies/wineries, festival participants will also have opportunities to sample a variety of honey used to make the best of Texas meads.
“Since its inception in 2012, Texas Mead Fest has inspired the growing ranks of devotees to craft brewing,” said Clint Walker III, owner of Dancing Bee Winery. “Those of us who are professional spirit crafters are thrilled with the reception that this ‘World’s Longest Enjoyed Alcoholic Beverage’ is receiving in its world-wide renaissance. As more and more people are captured by the spell of fragrant honeys fermented into delectable beverages, we all tapping into our genetic memory banks of our long-ago forbears. Mead Fest is a great opportunity to taste the best of the best in this burgeoning Lone Star craft. I wouldn’t want to miss the seventh annual event!”
