We'll have a special area for meads because we love them as much as beer. What's mead? It's an ancient drink that's basically honey wine but there are many variations. Sweet, dry, spiced, with grapes or other fruit, you name it! We'll also have ciders here.

2013 Meads and Ciders
These are prospective brewers and mead makers trying to make the leap from homebrewer to commercial. They are at various stages in the process from just getting started to fully funded and planning the brewery. Check them out, give them encouragement, and find out how they do it.
We can now legally have homebrew at the festival! We have a separate area for it on the patio. Several homebrew clubs will be there to talk about brewing your own and offering samples.
