2-14-17 We’re headed to New Mexico tonight, to visit with Greg Menke, the chef owner of The Beestro Group of Businesses: The Beestro and The Hive Market located in downtown Santa Fe New Mexico as well as The Root Cellar Mead Taproom & Gastropub and Falcon Meadery both coming online in fall/winter 2016.

These businesses encompass Greg’s passion for community, high quality local and sustainable food, and a celebration of honey bees. Inspired by the hive community of bees, each of these businesses helps one another succeed, in turn, helping to keep people, the local economy, and the environment healthy. (You can tell he loves those bees!!)

Greg is a mead fanatic, and a professional chef, so you can imagine the pairings, mead cocktails and who knows what all else he’s come up with? Join us for a peek into sourcing your mead in the Southwest.
