Does everyone else on YouTube feel like they're filming for a low budget horror film? Like specifically, I don't know, a zombie film where you want to be like, "it's day 37 of the Quarantine?"
Welcome to Ask the Meadmaker, where I, Ricky the Meadmaker, answer your questions about meadmaking, mead drinking, mead brewing, and really any question you are willing to send me. All right, guys, here's my question for you.
This is a one question episode. So, let me give you a little background. We're a small business. We're doing okay. Kelly is upstairs on her 13th zoom meeting of the day, Nora is happily playing in a bathtub. We are at our house. Most of you are too. We're sort of losing our minds. But we have been filling orders for all of you across the country.
Thank you. Thank you, our sales in stores are down 92%. And you guys are really helping. So thank you. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you for keeping my family in business.
So, what can we do for you? It's really tough for a lot of people right now, this whole idea that this is new normal. That means this is new all the time, but it's not going to feel normal. So, what do you need?
Our company was built on feasting. The entire premise of what we hope to accomplish with our mead making was not just to sell mead, but to help people feast and this isn't really an environment for feasting.
How can we help you feel like you're feasting at home? What can we do for you? Make your comments, send us letters. If you're in a state where you can buy our stuff, we obviously appreciate it. But this is an episode about all of you: the hundreds and hundreds of people who have watched these episodes and have supported each other and answered each other's questions down in the comments. It's amazing.
This is the best we're going to get for community for a little while. So please tell us what we can do. Please, please, please. We'll do our best. We're working. I'm trying to do a live zoom feast. We'll see how that comes across. I’m a bit of a Luddite everyone knows, but anything you can think of anything we can do. Thank you for all of your support. Please let us know how we can support you.
Keep sending your questions and we will get to them as soon as possible. Cheers.
