Unravel the mysteries of Mead.
A modern day resurgence is happening with the consumption of one of the world’s oldest and
most legendary beverages. Romanced in Norse legends and a favourite tipple in Chaucer’s
Canterbury Tales, mead is once again popular among the trendy youth today.
Today, Mead production is once again popular, particularly in North America. There are more
than 350 meaderies on the continent, several hailing from British Columbia and
Alberta. Trendy bars capitalizing in the resurgence of Cocktail Culture are including Mead as a
component in popular drinks.
Join Ken Bracke our Sommelier for a fascinating exploration of this unique beverage. Taste 8 - 10 different styles and discover ways to use it in cocktails for your own entertaining. Get to know Mead before the Summer Solstice, when this drink is often consumed.
Some light snacks will be served. Bring a friend and have some fun!
