Why Mead is the Next Big Thing
Recently I was at the Epicurience Virginia event at 1 Loudoun in Ashburn, Virginia. I was mixed among all my friends from Virginia wineries pouring Honey Grail's "Boudica's Uprising" sparkling mead, and again it was an eye-opening experience for me!

Time after time people tried the mead without much idea what it really was. "This is like a medieval beer, right?" they'd ask? Or "What grape is this made from?" Some revelers had an idea about the product, saying "They add honey to this beer, I think... but it's not very hoppy!" Everyone was interested in the process for making mead, and it was universally enojoyed.
In fact, the one thing I can definitely say is that people returned again and again... and again. This stuff is addictive, because it's so darn easy to drink!
For those who haven't had mead, it is made simply from fermented honey. That's it. In the case of Honey Grail (honeygrail.com) the mead is a bit on the lighter and drier side, and it's sparkling, providing a light, crisp and totally refreshing experience.
