Fermented Beverages

2018 Fermented Beverages Tasting Competition! (21 and up only)

Get ready to taste some magic! The mead tasting competition has taken place for at least eight years running at Blue Ridge Beltane. Come learn tips and techniques for creating your own mead and ales at 2:30pm on Saturday, May 19th so you can enter the competition next year.

This year, we will kick off the competition with some spell work. We will make “The Mead of Thor’s Swagger” to channel our true power. Then, workshop attendees will taste the fabulous mead of our community. Please bring TWO CUPS, one for you and one for a friend.

We will award prizes for Judges’ Choice and People’s Choice, but we all know the real prize is bragging rights.

If you are interested in submitting a mead or ale for the tasting, please bring your labeled entry to be passed around during the tasting.

Gretchen is that loud lady with the glasses. She makes mead and won’t shut up about it, so we let her run the mead contest. It’s for the best, really.
