2-1-22 Tonight we’re hanging with Ty Wheeler, mead maker, and host of the ‘TK and Drinks‘ video podcast.

Ty is a denizen of Arizona, and is a dad of two boys and purchasing agent in his day life. By night, he’s a podcaster and is working on mead distribution. At the beginning of COVID, he got laid off and decided to make a career in the mead industry.

Ty got into mead a few years back after re-connecting with a high school friend and former roommate, Jon Oppegaard of Oppegaard Meadery in Washington. He joined the Oppegaard Viking club, and started making regular purchases and visiting the local meaderies around him in Arizona.

Ty hosts his TK and Drinks channel, and it’s his mead advocacy venue. He started it to become a mead reviewer, and hone his skills to become a competition mead judge. and along the way it morphed into doing interviews and homebrewing/meadmaking videos as well. And now it’s lead to doing mead distribution in Arizona.

Join us to talk mead, meaderies, finding and distributing and whatever else we wander into at 9PM ET tonight!
