5-21-18 We’re back! Tonight we’re talking with Adam Thompson, owner of Machination Meadworks in Loveland, Colorado.
Adam envisioned Machination Mead Works in 2013 and began the long path to starting his own meadery. Now with over a decade of brewing experience and a few dozen medals, including five Mazer Cups, he is ready to share his mead with the world. It has been a long uphill fight but his time in the Army’s 3rd Ranger Battalion (Thank you for your service!! – Vicky) taught him to never accept failure and he has broken through miles of government red tape to make his dream a reality. Machination Mead Works is now fully licensed and producing their first batches that are going to be released locally in and around Loveland, Colorado and nationally through Vinoshipper.
