Obscure and historical boozes are having more than a moment in the international booze consciousness which means mead isn't just for the vikings of yesteryear anymore. In fact, up in Prescott, the brewers behind Superstition Meadery are making modern fermentations from local honey—resulting in some seriously delicious mead.
If you're curious just what mead might taste like, know that a typical five-gallon batch uses 15 pounds of honey in its production. Is it sweet? Yeah. Is it summery? Totally. Should you try it yourself? Obviously, and you can by heading to Tap & Bottle on Wednesday, July 22 from 5 until 7 p.m. for a mead tasting event.
The complimentary tasting of four different Superstition meads will include Tahitian Honeymoon, Lagrimas de Oro, Sweet Mesquite and Arizona State 69 Route Honey Highway. If you like one (or all) of the meads in particular, the event will include special bottle pricing at 10 percent off for Superstition meads.
Just keep in mind mead might drink kind of like a beer but it has the booze content of a wine, so imbibe responsibly.
