Mead Tapping

Monday, October 15th, 2018

Old Town Pour House - Oak Brook
8 Oakbrook Center, Oak Brook, IL 60523

We've got a need for mead! On October 15th, join us for a special tapping of Wild Blossom Meadery Grapefruit Ginger

So what is mead, anyway? Well, it's an alcoholic beverage made from fermented honey, yeast, and water, and is sometimes referred to as "honey wine". Mead is sometimes brewed similarly to beer due to the addition of hops in the beverage, but usually has a higher ABV percentage more akin to wine. Surprisingly, like wine, not all mead is as sweet as you might expect! Flavor profiles can range from candy-sweet to bone dry. Meads can be still or sparkling. 

Wild Blossom Meadery Grapefruit Ginger mead boasts an ABV of 8%. The ginger element plays nicely with the honeyed body of the beverage for a candied ginger flavor. It is lightly carbonated with a lovely scent of grapefruit peel to compliment the sweeter flavors. 

Be sure to try Wild Blossom Meadery Grapefruit Ginger mead when we tap it on October 15th!
