I realize that this event is a little ways off, but it sounds like a lot of fun, and letting everyone know about it now allows mead makers to rev up their brew houses for the Amateur Homebrew Mead Competition.
Texas Meadfest 2015 offers “family fun” with food, live music, and mead tasting among other activities. All the fun is happening from 11am to 7pm on September 19, 2015. Tickets are $20 in advance, $25 at the event, and offer a lot more than jut entry to the fun. You also get a souvenir wine glass and 8 tasting tickets.
That competition I mentioned? Rules and regulations, registration information and drop-off locations are listed on the website at TexasMead.org if you think you might want to get in on the action.
Featured wineries include Dancing Bee Winery, Meridian Hive Meadery, Enchanted Manor Winery, Griffin Meadery, Texas Mead Works, Rohan Meadery, and Darcy’s Vineyard.
