4-23-19 Tonight we’re headed down to Texas, to talk with Gary Gordon, owner of Breaking Brew Meadery in Farmers Branch, Texas. Gary and his family got involved with mead via beer. He gave his son at beer kit on his 21st birthday, and that got the ball rolling. After 5 years of making beers, he got really interested in meads and ciders. They were really interested in how fast mead was taking off, and realized that craft beer drinkers are open minded about trying new things, and the meadery idea was born. Once they realized the equipment costs were lower for mead, that really got things going. Breaking Brew Meadery currently makes 10 session meads, and is getting ready to release six full meads, and is poured in two taprooms. We’ll talk with Gary about his meadmaking ideas, and delve into his adventures in starting a meadery.
