The latest issue of American Mead Maker, the journal of the American Mead Makers Association is out, and it's full of news for mead makers and mead lovers alike. Every page is worth reading, but be sure to check out "Cold House, Warm Starter" by Meadmaker Ricky!
If your device can't load Java, you can read the journal here.
In which Ricky the Meadmaker fields questions about toasting with mead, what "black tie" means, how he makes those off-the-wall Firkin Friday meads, and more.
We have a new most common question here at the meadery, just edging out, “Now. what is mead exactly?”
Our new quotidian question is: “Which of these is most like traditional mead?”
The nice thing about the old question is that no matter how tiresome it may get to answer the same question over-and-over again, at least there’s an easy, coherent response. “Mead is honey, water, and yeast. Sometimes other things are added.” Done.
The trick to answering questions about traditional mead is to look deep into the eyes of the interlocutor and attempt to deduce how detailed a response is desired. Once this intense/awkward/seductive/whimsical/passionate/sedate/enlightening eye-lock has been accomplished, we answer in one of three ways.
You may have noticed that no matter the answer, we have a product that fits the bill. Well, that’s no coincidence. That’s because of our new company policy which reads:
“Ricky, please don’t let intellectual honesty get in the way of another sale.”
Groennfell Meadery is Vermont’s premier craft meadery. Inspired by Old Norse legends, brewed with extraordinary ingredients, Groennfell’s meads are unlike anything you’ve had before. Crisp, clean, and astoundingly drinkable, the only way to explain any one of Groennfell’s meads is to try one yourself.
