    Hey Steve:

    Great question; we are trying to be a “people’s meadery” fielding suggestions and recommendations from our fans and members. We are working on our production facilities and first 4 meads currently but we have of lot of big plans currently for our first year people! When we sold 175 memberships in 59 mins, we realized that we owe our fans a huge debt of gratitude. And we intend to pay dividends.

    But I really suggest anyone go use this thread as the see and tell all AMA for Four Fires! I know you have questions. And I have answers.

    Me personally? It would probably be the impromptu picture of me death staring the brewer of 3 Sons in a green raincoat at Dark Lord day...but let’s say for the sake of the thread; it’s just a picture of Ohio.

    In Athreya’s defense, I drunkenly talked him into this in an uber after a barleywine share. :D

    testosterownd - thanks for answering questions. Do you guys have an idea what will be your first commercial release?

    Is a requirement of your membership to post unfavorable reviews of Garagiste meads on Untappd? Please advise.

    Lol, yes it is. That said, this is definitely why we do AMAs here. They’re actually most useful to cut through controversy and get these kinda things out in the open.

    Unlike elsewhere, talkbeer won’t delete these questions or call them trolling. Although I will ban this account if it’s a hobby account lol. If it is: Have the backbone to ask that (legitimate) question on your primary account.

    testosterownd awesome that you are starting up in Toledo (Maumee). What are you noticing as the biggest issue with starting up in this area?

    Of the 175 memberships how many are in Toledo? More or less than 75%?
