Havoc Mead is thrilled to announce the next release in our Sour Series.
We're calling it the Sour Meadmaker: Raspberry Lime Ricky!
This brew is the 3rd in Havoc's Sour Series and will be just as twisted and delicious as our previous single-batch sours, Rumble and Curmudgeon. This one is inspired by our Head Meadmaker, the one and only Ricky Klein, also known as "Ricky the Meadmaker."
Like our other Sour Series brews, Sour Meadmaker will be brewed with as many local natural ingredients as possible, including honey from our friends at French Hill Apiaries.
And, of course, we need you! Our wild/local artists!!!
First prize is $100 and your artwork on every can of Sour Meadmaker.
To participate, please read the guidelines below and email a high-resolution image of your submission along with your full name, phone number, and the title of the work to Ricky@groennfell.com.
Deadline for submissions is February 22nd, 2021.
For inspiration, feel free to check out our previous Sour Series winners and art submissions at the bottom of this post.
You are allowed (and encouraged!) incorporate Ricky the Meadmaker's likeness in your submissions. For reference on Ricky, visit our YouTube channel and check out back episodes of Ricky the Meadmaker.
