National Mead Day
1st Saturday in August
First organized in 2002 by the American Homebrewers Association (AHA), Mead Day is a national event to increase mead awareness and foster camaraderie among meadmakers.
Homebrewers around the world are encouraged to invite friends and family to celebrate Mead Day by making mead together.
What is Mead?
Mead, perhaps the oldest fermented beverage, is made by combining honey, water, and yeast, and is often referred to as honey wine. Mead can range from sweet to very dry, and can be left as a traditional mead, or it can be flavored with flowers, fruits, herbs, spices, vegetables, or virtually anything you can think of adding, making a versatile array of aromas and flavors.
