And the Winner Is…

Maple Leaf Glass of MeadArtist’s Rendering of Maple Mead
The artist is an idiot.

Well, it was neck-and-neck right to the end, folks. Hopped was up by a vote, then Maple, then Hopped again with Spiced Cranberry left in their dust. About a week ago Maple took a fairly commanding lead. Then, out of the blue, our voting box was crammed full of votes for the Hopped Mead. When we tallied on Friday it was a dead tie.

Finally, at the Eleventh Hour, with one day left in the voting, three online votes tipped the balance: Maple Mead eked out a victory by a mere TWO votes. 

So, what does this all mean? It means that we’re going to be submitting the final recipe for the Maple Mead to the TTB with the hope that we’ll be able to add it as a bottled special release in the future.

In the meantime, keep up the good work. We know it’s tough hanging out at the meadery with your friends, getting free samples of Firkin Friday meads, and trying to remember to vote, but someone has to do it.
