It’s that time of year again… Mead Day! August 1st is the official AHA National Mead Day. Pacific Gravity will be celebrating Mead Day on Saturday August 1 at the home of Dan & Anne Hakes. We will be brewing, tasting and talking about mead. If you have some mead to share, bring it along.
This is a club potluck event, please bring beer and food to share.
The Tavern on Twentieth will be open. Drop by, socialize, and watch how easy it is to make mead! If you bring your own equipment you will have to use a water saving technique Dan is using for the water you run through the chiller. Other than that, feel free to bring your brew setup.

Here is some information from the AHA about Mead Day.
What is Mead? Perhaps the oldest known fermented beverage, mead is made by combining honey, water and yeast. Sometimes referred to as “honey wine”, mead can range from sweet to very dry, and can be flavored with flowers, fruits, herbs, spices, vegetables or virtually anything you can think of. Making mead at home is simple, and if you have equipment to make beer, you should be ready to make a batch of delicious mead!

Get in on the Mead Day buzz!
Organized by the American Homebrewers Association (AHA) in 2002, Mead Day was created to increase mead awareness and foster camaraderie among meadmakers. Homebrewers and meadmakers around the world are encouraged to invite friends and family to celebrate Mead Day by making a delicious batch of mead together!
