Tour & Tasting

12:00PM - 1:00PM

Sunday, June 2 ONLY

Ages: 21 - Adult. At Bløm Meadworks (pronounced “bloom”), we make what we like to call session meads and ciders – they’re light, dry, carbonated, and remarkably sessionable. For our meads, we start with the same ingredients as a traditional mead - honey, water and yeast - which means we can source all of our ingredients from Michigan. Unlike most meads though, we ferment it like a dry craft cider, so the result isn’t nearly as thick or sweet as traditional mead. During this event, you'll learn all about how mead is made, tour the taproom and production area, taste the ingredients and sample two of our current meads and ciders. **Participants must be at least 21 years of age.** Materials fee, $10 (cash or credit card), due to instructors at class. Instructors: Lauren Bloom and Matt Ritchey, owners of Bløm Meadworks. 1 class.
