HAD 96: Mead
Hear ye, hear ye! Lords and Ladies of the drink, we gather together today to discuss that sweetest of beverages, Mead! Okay, I can’t keep this up, and it’s a disservice to mead to label it a just a thing for Renaissance fairs. It’s more than just something to wash giant turkey legs down . . . now I’m hungry. Focus Bob, because it’s time to talk about that oldest of alcohols, and have a drink.
Our next episode will be live on Twitch Saturday, Aug 11 at 9:00 PM EST covering Coffee: Part Two

Brewery’s description: In honor of the 40th anniversary of the original release of Bitches Brew, Miles Davis' 1970 paradigm-shifting landmark fusion breakthrough, we've created our own Bitches Brew -- a bold, dark beer that's a fusion of three threads of imperial stout and one thread of honey beer with gesho root. It's a gustatory analog to Miles' masterpiece.
