Mead Day — Worldwide Celebration

Mead Day only comes once a year, but homebrewers have been celebrating and making mead for over 5,000 years. The American Homebrewers Association (AHA) recognizes Mead Day annually on the first Saturday in August. 
Mead Day celebrates the international hobby of meadmaking. Mead is a fermented beverage often referred to as honey wine. The AHA provides homebrewers with the official mead day recipe and then on Mead Day, homebrewers from across the globe invite friends and family to make mead, sample mead, and pair mead with food.
Mead continues to grow in popularity as more people enjoy the wide variety of flavors that the beverage has to offer. Mead can be blended with different herbs, spices, and fruits and can be sweet or dry, still or sparkling to make a truly unique and enjoyable taste.
American Homebrewers Association Director, Gary Glass says, "Mead is the easiest of fermented beverages to make, and one of the most rewarding. Beginning meadmakers can make a great tasting mead on their first attempt. From there the possibilities are endless with all of the different fruits and spices that can be used in mead."
