I got a notice from Beer Advocate about this competition which includes mead as well as other beverages. However, I have no additional information about it other than what you can read here.

https://www.beeradvocate.com/micro/
I looked everywhere on the site. Not only do I see nothing about mead, but this appears to be a way for micro-breweries to show off their stuff. There does not appear to be anything for home-meadmakers or even home-brewers.

And in my experience I have not been impressed with the braggots made my breweries unless done in collaboration with a meadery.

Are there any worthwhile public Mead events in the North East?
Mead around here is rare and buying a bottle of each at the local stores gets expensive.
(So far I have not been impressed with what I have bought)
It would be great to have a regional tasting event, that way I will know if what I am making is worth the effort.

Moonlight Meadery in NH does tastings. My son has been there and he says it's an awesome place.
