    That's 2016. It's the first time they did it with that label and those size bottles.

    Can anyone tell me what's available to go at the Schramms store this weekend? (Their new website's "store" link seems to be broken.) Thanks!

    Ginger, Nutmeg, Raspberry and Blackberry are all on local retail shelves. They may not have all of those at Schramm's, but you can find them around pretty easily.

    Store link wouldn't tell you that anyway. Store is for shirts and tickets to seated brunches and dinners.

    This turned out to be a surprisingly good drunk decision.

    Just got in a case of Marion mead from Superstition to split with a friend. Haven't had this mead until today.

    I'd advise against it, bottles typically don't have a lot of friction between them, and this seems like an easy way to break a lot of bottles at once.

    Usually I would agree, but the price was good and free shipping.

    I know some of you are in the group but the prices people are paying for these magnums of Garagiste mead is insane.... even if it is for charity.

    So Butterfly Pea Blossoms are also known as Clitoria Ternatea, as they have a similar shape to human female gentalia. Used as a natural food coloring.

    Someone with more time on their hands can make a joke about Bangkok and clitoris.

    It's a gorgeous shade of blue/purple and one of the more delicately flavored Garagiste meads.
