We are working on a new schedule for Open Houses and will post that schedule here soon. We apologize for any inconvenience.

CELESTIAL MEADS WINS AT 2011 MAZER CUP INTERNATIONAL!
The Mazer Cup International is the largest commercial mead competition in the world and had over 200 entries this year. Celestial Meads took a Gold Medal for 'Que Syrah, Syrah' (a petite syrah pyment) and a bronze for 'Cyser Does Matter', 'Miel Noir' and 'Scheherazade'.

WOOT! WOOT! CELESTIAL MEADS IS OFFICIALLY THE BEST MEAD IN THE WORLD!!
Celestial Meads took home an unprecedented 9 medals from the 2010 Mazer Cup International held in Boulder, Colorado on March 26th & 27th, 2010. The next closest competitor won 5 medals. This is the largest mead-only competition in the world with entries from as far away as Nicaragua, Poland, Slovakia and the Phillipines, making this a truly international event. For more details on the MCI competition go to www.meadfest.com. The best mead in the world is made right here in ANCHORAGE, ALASKA! Are you drinking it?
