Join Slow Food Austin for a Slow Session with Meridian Hive Meadery at the Draught House on Oct 19th. Mead or honey wine is the oldest alcoholic drink known, yet many are still unfamiliar with the brewing process and varied flavors. The guys behind Meridian Hive are truly passionate about their craft and will take us through a journey of side-by-side honey varietal and mead tastings.

About Meridian Hive
Meridian Hive was founded in 2012 by three explorer’s with a sense of adventure and a vision… to reinvent the perception of mead. The craft of fermentation is what brought them together. They originally met through local home-brew meetings in 2008 and found a similar passion. As ingredients were explored, characteristics were discovered, and variables minimized, glorious recipes were born. As the three shared their ideas of mead with each other, the journey started to coalesce. A collaboration was inevitable. When the mead started flowing in 2013, Meridian Hive finally got the chance to share their glory of exploration with all who are willing to take the journey.
Slow Sessions are educational events that are always free and open to the public. The goal is twofold: (1) to provide opportunities for Austinites to learn more about their food and where it comes from (2) to support local businesses whose values align with the Slow Food mission of good, clean and fair food for all.
