Breaking Brew is a Meadery located in Dallas, Texas. The tasting room is a nice sized area, with a modern, clean-lined look. The staff there was very helpful and knowledgeable, and seemed quite excited to share their creations.
They have a bunch of varieties to try, as well as some of their home made jerky available. If you’re in the area, check them out. Everything I sampled was very good.
Blue By You (Blueberry/LemonGrass/Thyme)
Light fruity nose. This was semi-sweet, with a mouth watering acidity. It had a bit of an herby finish, as the lemongrass and thyme really shine through. It was lightly carbonated. I thought the addition of the lemongrass and thyme really made this unique.
Cherry Bear (Ginger/Cherry)
This had a strong ginger nose. Ginger was definitely the dominant flavor, with a hint of cherries at the finish. It had a nice distinct bite that ginger often brings. It was slightly more carbonated than the Blue by You.
This had a light, sweet scent. A nice tart finish, a mild sweetness that wasn’t cloying. It was mouthwatering and very refreshing. This was my favorite of their meads I tried.
Not much of a nose to it. This was a pleasant, dry mead with a hint of vanilla coming through in the finish. This was a simple flavor, but nice.
