B. Nektar’s 2016 Spring Mead Fest week is upon us! Check out what we have planned for you!
We like to party, we like to party with you! When we plan out our Spring Mead Fest, we wanted to make sure that our fans had much to do. Take a look below on the plan we have for you!
Quizzo – 8pm
Funny cat videos all night. You know you love it.
We kick this off by tapping a mead fest special, Gin Barrel NecroMangoCon and the Hero or Villain food truck serving up some specialties for you.
Our popular mango mead with cracked black pepper (NecroMangoCon, duh) in Ferndale’s own, Valentine Distilling, Liberator Gin barrels. Yes, the same people that make Valentine Vodka, which was named the best in the WORLD. Brad and Rifino Valentine have known each other for ages, and we basically have stalked him for his barrels. Doesn’t hurt that the companies are neighbors in Ferndale, so we literally drove our forklift to pick out the barrels, and the beginning of a long drunken friendship started. The black pepper was added only after aging so that we could balance it perfectly with the botanical character picked up from the barrels. The aroma on this is epic with huge spicy notes of citrus, mango, pepper, cloves and ginger. The mead drinks really smooth and has a true cocktail feel to it. ABV 8% CARBONATED Draft only
Come get your quiz on at the B. Nektar Taproom! Bring your amigos out for a night of awesome drinks and geeked-up trivia!
Friday, May 6th we are starting the party early to kick of Spring Mead Fest! Join us in the taproom (Opening EARLY at 3pm) to get a taste of our Strawberry Rhubarb mead and eat on some delights from the Hero Or Villian Food Truck. The iconic strawberry and rhubarb combination is, of course, the strawberry rhubarb pie, and we love ourselves some strawberry rhubarb pie, so why not a mead. So we did that..just for you. Join us and let’s get weird!
