10-18-22 Tonight on Gotmead Live at 9PM ET, we’re looking forward to talking with Keith Seiz with the National Honey Board. We usually like to have Keith and Alison on during National Honey Month in September, but this year we’re doing October.
We’ll be finding out what the Honey Board has been up to, and talking about their Honey20 Project, the Mead Crafters Competition (5th year!), and the Honey Spirits Competition, as well as their other involvement with honey in craft beverages.
We’ll dig into how it went with the Mead Crafters Competition, and what’s coming in future competitions. We’ll also be talking with Keith about his MeadCon talk around mead positioning itself as the next big thing, and follow the track of spirits-based RTD. And of course, honey. Seems that the demand for honey in the last year is the largest ever, and it keeps growing.
For the last eleven years, Keith has traveled the country educating bakers, distillers, brewers and now mead makers about honey and its many uses. It’s his passion, and one that has him working with bees and meads, two of his favorite things. Before working for the National Honey Board, Keith served as editor and associate publisher of a trade publication that covered the wholesale baking industry.
