A whole building dedicated to something to drink? Must be delicious... I'll have to get my hands on some.

Finished product!

Ten years later, and I still haven't made my way to actually trying any, but buddy, with this sweet mead how-to, you better believe I'm gonna.

@Nancy - Bring some Lindisfarne over, and we'll make up a batch of this recipe!

Lindisfarne Mead (made by monks in Great Britain) is awesome, commercial American mead is weak and not worth drinking.  I wonder if this brew is the mead equivalent of moonshine, in which case it should have quite a kick to it.
