Craft beverage geeks, here’s a little booze news you can use. The world’s oldest alcoholic beverage is making a comeback. It’s not beer, cider, or liquor. Yes, we are talking about mead. 

Wait… what is mead? Mead is an alcoholic beverage made from honey. Mead literally goes back centuries. We’re talking circa 9000 BC. Crazy, right? Mead technically falls in its very own beverage category. 

If you’re looking for mead locally, you’re in luck. Buffalo has its very own meadery, Queen City Meadery. They officially opened back in December of 2018 with a special mission in mind: to reinvent the world’s oldest alcoholic beverage.

At Queen City Meadery, they follow a strict bee to bottle process that involves sourcing from local vendors whenever possible. Only the highest quality ingredients go into their mead.

 

Mead Misconceptions

One of the biggest misconceptions about mead is that since it’s made from honey, it’s always sweet. Not true. Mead can be sweet, semi-sweet, or dry and the flavor varies based on the fruits, spices, hops, and brewing style. Mead can be still, carbonated, or naturally sparkling.
