8-9-16 Meridian Hive Meadery in Austin has been making mead since 2012, and winning awards all the way. The guys do a lot of session meads and kick but while doing it! Eric and Mike make amazing mead! Eric also runs the Texas Mead Fest and competition which is coming up in September as well.
Meridian Hive is big on balance in their meads, and does mostly session meads, the majority of them on draft, but some are bottled. They are currently hard at work turning on all of Texas to their interesting meads, and having a great time doing it!
On Back to Basics, AJ,and I will be talking about bochets, balance and session meads with Eric and Mike from Meridian Hive. What to use, when, and in what meads.
Join us 9PM ET tonight! (8PM CT/7PM MT/6PM PT)

Note: We lost the broadcast last week at about 10:36 due to nasty storms in the area, but were also recording offline. We are in the process of cutting and pasting various bits together and hope to have the updated recording up in the next day or so. We hoped for last week, but jobs, timing and internet issues here at the GM Studios got in the way.
Bring your questions and your mead, and let’s talk mead! You can call us at 803-443-MEAD (6323), or Skype us at meadwench (please friend me first and say you’re a listener, I get tons of Skype spam), or tweet to @gotmeadnow.
