(Ferndale, MI) – B. Nektar Meadery sent out a newsletter update this afternoon regarding the upcoming MeadFest, to be held on August 4th, and associated mead releases. At least four specialty meads will be made available in bottles. More from the email below…
Dark Dark Goose
So, some of you may remember that about a year and a half ago, we made coffee mead that was aged in a bourbon barrel. Well, last October our co-founder Brad drove his piece of junk car to Chicago to meet with the head of Goose Island’s barrel program. He returned (on the roof of his car) with a coveted barrel that was used to age their Bourbon County Stout. We then aged the coffee mead in this barrel until just recently. Welcome, the Dark Dark Goose. $25 / 375ml.
Once upon a time, there was a mead that just kept fermenting. At 19%, this is one of our strongest meads to date. This wildflower mead was aged in a rye whiskey barrel for a long, long time. Be careful not to awaken The Sleeping Giant. $25 / 375ml.
With our usual complete disregard for convention, tradition, and good sense, the mad meadmakers at B. Nektar have engineered yet another weird creation: Evil Genius IPA-style mead.
Meant to pay tribute to our favorite IPAs, we mixed wildflower honey with 3 kinds of hops to create a glorious draft elixir that will completely alter your consciousness.
We are scheduled to bottle more Evil Genius right before Mead Fest, so get yours then.
Also making an appearance.
Meadjito – Inspired by the mojito cocktail.
Retired/old meads we had lying around.
