11-6-18 We’re tickled to have Pete Bakulic, President of the Mazer Cup International Mead Competition, on with us tonight.
Pete was one of the founders of the Mazer Cup International and has been actively involved with the growth and expansion of the competition ever since. Last year, the Mazer Cup International saw over 1100 meads judged. It is the largest mead competition in the world. Entries for the home side of the competition typically fill up several hours for home, and under 2 weeks for commercial, it’s that popular.

Pete has been making mead for over 30 years, and is also a trained winemaker, with education from U.C. Davis, and a family tradition of winemaking that goes back generations. I guess you could say he has some experience!

Tonight Pete comes on with us to talk about competitions. What’s going on with them, some of the background and behind the scenes efforts, and insight into what makes a competition tick. This is a must-listen if you run a comp, or are thinking about creating or entering one!
