The first Saturday in August is a celebration of the world’s oldest fermented beverage. It was established by the American Homebrewer’s Association in 2002 as a way to bring awareness to this oft overlooked drink in the states. It also acts as a means to foster a sense of community among fellow mead makers.
If you missed it this year, don’t fret. You now have a whole year to prep for the next one! If you’re just getting started on your brewing journey, take a look at the beginner’s guide or the intermediate guide to making mead.
