About this Event

Probably the world's oldest alcoholic drink, Mead is an alcoholic beverage that gets its fermentable sugars from honey, just like cider does from apples and wine does from grapes. It’s an incredible and versatile beverage that benefits from a broad spectrum of styles and techniques used to make it—and no one does it better than Adam Crockett and the award-winning Upper Reach Meadery (PA).

In this one-hour online event, join Adam Crockett, founder and creative brewer of Upper Reach Meadery (formerly Haymaker Meadery) for a virtual tutored-tasting of four different meads from their newest collection plus four bricks of cheese from Cabot Creamery to be enjoyed side by side. You’ll learn about how mead is made, a bit of its history, and how best to enjoy it—including how to use it to create cool cocktails.

Perfect for the lovers of wine, cider and even beer, for this educational and entertaining virtual seminar you will receive a specially-curated variety pack of four 12oz cans (one each of four different flavors) plus four bricks of cheese from Cabot Creamery’s exceptional line of award-winning cheeses shipped to your home. This experience is fun to do with family or friends and can easily be enjoyed by up to four people at a single location.

Must be 21+ to participate. For this event, we are unable to fulfill orders for residents of DE or NJ.
