3-3-20 Tonight at 9PM ET GotMead Live will be talking with Steve Patik, an accomplished and award winning mead maker who will be speaking at the AMMA MeadCon in two weeks on braggots, along with Andy Brewer from Locavore Beerworks.
Steve discovered mead over Thanksgiving dinner in 2012, and a year later was making it. Since then, Steve has been making mead in unconventional ways, yet successful.
Steve is a regular entrant in mead competitions all over the country, and he consistently does really well, even taking a Best in Show now and again. His favorite styles to work with are traditionals and braggots, and he really shines with his braggots and is known for them in the mead world.
We’ll have a bit shorter show tonight, as Steve has a late commitment this evening, but we’ll have fun talking shop about braggots and other meadly things!
Join us on the live chat and don’t be afraid to call in if you want to!
