5-21-19 It’s time for Texas! Texas Mead Works, that is. Mike Poole, owner and meadmaker of Texas Meadworks, in Seguin, TX, joins us tonight.

Mike began making beer, mead, and wine while living in Washington State in the early 1990s.  He currently has approximately 26 years experience fermenting.  With his wife, he opened Texas Mead Works and Blue Lotus Winery in 2010 in Seguin, Texas.
Last year in September, they opened a second tasting room in the  Texas Hill Country.  Under the Texas Mead Works brand, they have 9 varieties of still meads selling in liquor stores all over Texas.  They also have a number of seasonals also still.
 They have recently launched a new line of meads under the brand “Saint Michaels Mead” that are all carbonated.  These are currently only available in kegs.  These kegged meads are also available all over Texas.
Mike is coming to talk with us about his mead journey, starting with nasty diesel fuel tasting mead, and culminating in a triple 100 score at the Mazer Cup (wow!).
