This is something to celebrate, as it's been a long time in the making. The release of "Festivus Prime", the first mead produced and sold commercially from Portland, Ore. Festivus Prime is a dry mead at 14% ABV, finished with citrus zest, cinnamon and star anise. Hi-Wheel started life as 10 Speed Mead out of my basement, however with the creating of fizzy wines, we rebranded to be more inclusive (and also to avoid a trademark infrigement, oops). Anyway, this mead is crisp and fragrant, released only in our taproom.
We'll also be welcoming to the taproom our friend Dillon of Bushwhacker Cider, who will be pairing up with Krista to serve some of their yummy ciders - we'll even have a hot cider to warm your bones. If you don't already know, Bushwhacker is opening their second location here in Woodlawn in Dekum Triangle, just across from Breakside Brewery.
