Mead is the oldest alcoholic beverage that mankind has made. Partly because mother nature made it naturally and we just copied her recipe.

Now Mainers are making it.

Dave Patterson typically writes about beer for MaineToday.com, but he made an exception to bring some meads by the 207 studio.

Patterson brought in Honeymaker by Maine Mead Works and some offerings from Urban Farm Fermentory. There are a handful of other meaderies around the state.
