10-20-20 Roger Wanner and Joe Abruzzo – W A Meadworks – Expanding Production and Making Great Meads

10-20-20 Tonight at 9PM ET GotMead Live will be talking with Roger Wanner and Joe Abruzzo, owners of W A Meadwerks on Long Island in New York. They bill themselves as ‘two guys making mead’. But it’s more than that. They bootstrapped a meadery out of almost nothing, and are rapidly growing their place, even with all the problems from being in the middle of COVID.

10-13-20Tonight on Gotmead Live at 9PM ET, it’s Fall (at least on the calendar, lol) and our minds are on cysers. Crisp fall evenings, cool temps, and a nice cyser, maybe around the fire with friends. What could be better?

Over the last several shows, we’ve had a lot of folks asking about oaking meads, and so we’re going to talk about that tonight. Adam has been experimenting with oaking for a long time, and gave a talk at MeadCon 2018 with Rocky Mountain Barrels on oak.
