Lexington Meadery Collaborates With City For Parks And Recreation Month

Myriad Meadery, the first meadery in Lexington, KY, recently opened its doors.

With an expanded menu since its opening, Myriad Meadery has collaborated with the city for Parks and Recreation Month, creating a special mead flavor and hosting a themed trivia event on July 14.

More Meadiversaries

We have a couple other meadiversaries (anniversary announcements) we’d like to make. First, we’d like to congratulate Brimming Horn Meadery in Milton, Delaware, which just celebrated its sixth meadiversary on July 1. We’d also like to wish Seattle’s own Mr. B’s Meadery a happy second meadiversary as their celebrations ran July 3 through July 6. Brimming Horn Meadery has become a staple in the local community over the past six years. Their commitment to crafting high-quality mead has earned them a loyal following and we can't wait to see what they have in store for the future. Similarly, Mr. B's Meadery has quickly made a name for itself in the industry since its opening two years ago. Their unique flavors and dedication to innovation have set them apart, and we're excited to see what the future holds for them as well. With their continued commitment to quality and innovation, these two meaderies are sure to make even bigger waves in the industry in the years to come.

Superstition Meadery Is Firing Both Barrels

Superstition Meadery's Double Barrel Aged Aphrodisia is a mead made with a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah grapes, aged for six years in Medium Toast New American Oak Barrels and Heavy Toast New American Oak Barrels. It is the longest-aged mead ever released by the company. The mead is available for purchase in bottles at their Prescott Tasting Room and Downtown Phoenix Restaurant and will be available in the Online Webstore at 11 am (10 am for Guild Members) on July 11th.

Meadiocrity Mead Is Buzzing

San Marcos, California’s Meadiocrity Mead currently has Watermelon Mint on tap, a refreshing summertime flavor with a fruity and slightly minty finish.

Additionally, there will be a Viking Raid fundraiser held in partnership with the Vista Viking Festival on July 29th. More details about the event will be announced soon.

Honey Production Buzzing In The Mahoning Valley Of Ohio

Nate Wilson, a former science teacher, started making mead with friends and eventually co-founded Woodland Cellars in Hubbard, Ohio. His first taste of mead inspired him to create a unique product that bridged the gap between wine and beer. Wilson's Eye of Odin mead has been in production for nearly 10 years, and he sources honey from McCune Family Apiaries in Auburn Township. Woodland Cellars produces around 10,000 gallons of mead per year, experimenting with different flavors and using local honey. Local honey production has grown in the area, with beekeepers such as Lori Mowad of Let it Bee Honey, Bruce Deafenbaugh, and Travis Watson contributing to the supply having scaled up their production, utilizing bees to pollinate crops and creating various honey-infused products.

Whether it's the emergence of new meaderies, the celebration of meadiversaries, the release of aged and innovative flavors, or the dedication to local honey production, the world of mead is constantly buzzing with excitement. From Kentucky to California, Delaware to Seattle, and Ohio's Mahoning Valley, mead enthusiasts, and producers are making their mark, pushing boundaries, and delighting taste buds with their creations. Whether you're a long-time mead aficionado or just discovering the world of this honey-based beverage, there's always something new and exciting to explore. So raise a glass, join in the festivities, and savor the sweet and unique flavors that the world of mead has to offer. Skål!
