American Maniacs

Superstition and B. Nektar. Individually, both have been on meadmaking sprees for years but until just recently, the joined together when Superstition became an accomplice to B. Nektar 500th batch. One of the most gruesome batches in history, slaughtering prickly pears, apple cider not to mention mesquite honey. Both B. Nektar and Superstition are still at large and it seems they have realized their one true calling in life. They are natural born meadmakers.
