(Albany, NY) – B. Nektar Meadery will launch their style bending session meads in New York State on November 1, 2013. Remarkable Liquids will represent the meadery in 55 counties north of New York City.
B Nektar shattered the perception of traditional mead with the creation of “Zombie Killer” in 2011. Zombie Killer is technically a cherry cyser fermented from Michigan honey, cherries, and cider. It is balanced and drinkable with floral notes of fermented honey, crisp cider and tart cherries. Black Fang and Necromangocon will also be available to New Yorkers on draft and in package. Black Fang is a 6 percent ABV mead fermented with blackberries, clove and orange zest. Necromangocon is a devious blend of fermented honey and mango juice spiked with black pepper.
“We are elated to work with the evil genius’s at B Nektar,” said Matt Hartman Partner at Remarkable Liquids. “They continually push themselves to new creative heights, further expanding the American palate, while single handedly creating a market for meads.”
Founder, Brad Dahlhofer, comments “we feel it’s our duty to defend New Yorkers from the growing zombie population. We just supply the tools to do the job. We’ll rely on our partners at Remarkable Liquids to ration them.”
B. Nektar was founded in 2006 by Brad and Kerri Dahlhofer and their good friend Paul Zimmerman. Brad, an avid homebrewer since 1998, teamed up with Paul, a long-time friend and fellow homebrewer, and began making meads in the Dahlhofers’ basement. Their meads quickly began winning awards at homebrewing competitions. In 2008 when both Brad and Kerri were laid off they decided to leave corporate America to pursue their passion full time.
