In fact, I was poking around here looking for commercial mead, and drew a
complete blank. The only mead I've seen in recent memory was the standard
"Chaucer's Mead" from Bargetto (of Soquel, CA), and even that has been out
of stock locally for a while. Are other areas of the US in better shape?

(If there isn't a good list of meaderies, and other folks are interested,
I'll collect any info we can find and compile a list for us.)
