HAPPY ST. PATRICK'S DAY, GMers!! Just wanted to say that. This is a major holiday to us Irish. Make sure you green your mead and wear your green. Especially if you are Irish like me. If you are not Irish you can wear green if you want, but it is not necessary. But we Irish appreciate it. ;D One word more. Kiss me because I am Irish! :-*

May the gods grant you great brews,
Gerald

Sure! If I had any ready!

I get the feeling they do well enough on their own...with a band name like "Shane's Teeth" I think they have it 'covered'.

;)

It was a long day for this greenblooded "mick"! Started out with a hearty breakfast, and was down at the bar tapping on the window by 9:55. Doors opened by 10, drunk by 10:45. Parade, cute green college girls, wait, how many pitchers is that? No pansy green beer here. Black Bush in the flask, guinness in the pitcher. Lamb stew for lunch. No need to leave the bar. Snakebites! Why am I smoking ciggarettes? Singing. More singing. whoa! almost fell there. Phone is ringing, people must be off work. more drinking. "Lady, come take me home." "mmmm pizza" whoops, that's the floor. "zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz"

Cheers! Hope you all had a fantasmic Paddy's Day

I had to work Paddy's day Eve, so I started the Party the night before with some Jameson's in the boot flask and hit Hero's in Fullerton. Black and tans and some proper corned beef, lots of nubile young college girls flashing for Emerald Green Beads. Life was good! Went until we crossed the midnight barrier and hit St Patrick's day proper and felt good about the whole thing. Ended up with a green thong that I still haven't figured out where it came from???

Cheers,

Oskaar

Back in 2006 when I was on as NeadMead I had received my first meads. They were from Desi's Dew in North Carolina. I had their dry mead and blackberry melomel. I had stated that I would post my opinion on them, but, alack, I forgot to. I am not an expert. Not even trained as a tester. I just go by what my taste buds tell me. I liked them. I will admit that the melomel was sweeter and I do lean more to sweet meads. I had also had their sweet mead before I left North Carolina and it was sweet to me, but not as sweet as the melomel.

Moving to Oklahoma, I found a couple of stores that sold mead. They both only had Chaucer's Mead. I liked it, but Desi's Dew tasted better to me. The interesting thing about Chaucer's is that they sell their mead with spices should you decide to use them to alter the mead's flavour. I never did. Unfortunately, the stores here only had the sweet mead and only did special ordering for high dollar beverages or orders by the case.
