American Homebrewers Association (AHA) created Mead Day in 2002 to celebrate mead makers around the world and celebrate the craftsmanship that goes into making one of the world's oldest fermented drinks.
Mead Day is a celebration of mead, a drink made from honey, water, and yeast. Mead has been around for centuries, and is thought to have originated in Europe or Asia. Mead is typically made by fermenting honey with water, and can be flavored with spices or fruits.
Mead can be enjoyed on its own or used as an ingredient in cocktails.
If you're looking to make your own mead, there are a few things you'll need to get started. First, you'll need honey. The type of honey you use will impact the flavor of your mead, so feel free to experiment. You'll also need water, yeast, and some type of container to ferment your mead in.
Once you have all of your ingredients, simply combine them and allow the mixture to ferment. The fermentation process can take a few weeks or even months, so be patient! Once your mead is finished fermenting, it's time to enjoy. Serve it chilled or at room temperature, and cheers to Mead Day!
