Show me the Honey (wine)! The official Mead, Honey Wine, Biere de Miel and Honey Spirits thread.

Regular Bramble was real good when i was there the other week. Pacific Bramble wasn’t pouring yet.

I ended up passing on bottles just because of timing but I hope they get made again.

This makes me sad. I had heard they were planning to move into a new space because of a landlord issue, but something else must have happened. I have had some of the best times just hanging out there.

Well that is sad news indeed, there was nothing better after spending $$$ at Schramms than relaxing at Cellarmen's with more sessionable meads, a really weird / eclectic atmosphere, and usually a cool dog or two.

Fuck.
 
I'm hoping this is just a necessary step to get out of that bullshit deal with their shitheel landlord and they will have a new/similar project up and running soon. Selling off the equipment has me doubtful though.

If you snagged a spot to visit Pips for a tasting; congratulations, it’s a great place run by a great guy. But CTFD. You don’t need to post 37 times about it (you winning a spot, you traveling there, you there, you reliving your visit for a week afterwards, etc). You Instagram followers don’t care. Just be thankful you went and tried tasty meads.

You can make one or 2 posts about it. Maybe a pic of your samples in a glass at the taproom with some words of praise. But if you make an IG post “warning” you IG following pre-emptively of upcoming trip you will be unfollowed.

Thank you for coming to my TEDtalk.

Your jelly is oozing out of your roll.

Fun Fact: I swung by Pips about 2 weeks ago. Drank lots of tasty bee spit. Shot lots of shit with Matt. Didn't take a single picture.

Apparently I'm not a social media influencer.
I still haven’t gone to Pips. Happy to let other people make that drive.
