If drinking delicious beer and learning about making mead sounds like your idea of a good time you might consider carving out a little time for an event next Saturday.
Local chef and mead-maker Jerry Morgan is teaming up with the guys down at Borderlands Brewing Co. for a demonstration on mead at 12:30 p.m., Saturday, Aug. 4. That, by the way, also happens to be the American Homebrewers Association's Mead Day.
Morgan is an interesting guy who has a lot of knowledge about crafting this ancient honey wine - more about that here - and the demonstration should be a good one. Sadly, the brewery isn't able to allow Morgan to dish out any mead samples due to liquor laws, but you will walk away with enough information and inspiration to go home and brew a batch of your own.
The brewery is located at 119 E. Toole Ave., and it opens at noon on Saturdays.
