What is mead?
Mead (sometimes called honey wine) is an ancient beverage with a rich history which started long before the Middle Ages, in fact as long ago as 7000 BC. Not only that, it has been fermented in over 20 countries and in each has its own cultural name. Pick up a glass of mead and let your imagination take you to a bygone era, whether it be Egyptian, Roman, Viking or Medieval. The resurgence of mead today is indeed the renaissance of the Renaissance.
Go early if you want to make the Bee Tour, but lets meet up at 2:00 at the Chinook Arch Meadery.
