Mead

The ancient Honey beverage of kings, queens and Vikings alike. Mead is made from a simple base of honey, yeast and water, however there few different styles. Traditional – just the 3 ingredients, melomel – fruit infused, and metheglin – with spices or herbs added. There are more styles but that is what the net is for. Judging mead in Alberta is not so easy as each meadery has different flavours based on the honey the bees produce from the environment. We tasted a lot of meads on the panel but the stand outs were the melomels and the metheglins and Grey Owls Apple Pie Mead was absolutely spectacular, nice lightly spicy hints and apple notes that made it unmistakably – apple pie. Dave Gingrich
