In this episode, we provide a very quick definition of mead, introduce ourselves, talk a little bit about the mead industry and its growth in recent years, and outline the future podcast format.

Also, during each podcast Allen and Tysen will drink mead and provide tasting notes and commentary on their respective beverages. In this episode, we enjoy two meads made by Allen.

Tysen tries a replica recipe of Joe’s Ancient Orange, and Allen drinks a traditional session mead made with wild yeast captured in Southern Maryland. Recipes for each can be found here: Joe’s Ancient Orange Recipe and Wild Yeast Session Mead.
