Have You Heard the Buzz About Mead?

Many of our customers may not know we carry mead, let alone what mead actually is. Mead is a honey-wine which ferments using primarily honey, and water. Since the mead is carbonated, it is incredibly effervescent, and tastes slightly similar to champagne.  We are proud to carry a mead brand from Corvallis, Oregon- Nectar Creek. Their catalog of meads expand from session (low ABVs) to barrel-aged varieties using local quality ingredients from the region. We just got a recent delivery from this fantastic meadery, such as Brood, a session wine with raspberries. If you’re a fan of sours, we highly recommend the Triple Brett, a sour honey-wine fermented in barrels with Brettanomyces. The occasional sunny days have us ready for spring, Festoon is perfect for a nice dinner on the patio, with it’s low ABV, and Hibiscus flavor–it’s surely not be missed. If you’re interested in any of the above, or the rest of our Nectar Creek catalog–please don’t hesitate to call your sales representative today!
