At the next month's meeting my club had "Mead Night," and it was one of the meads we tried. I thought it tasted fairly close to Atomic Fireball candies, and I couldn't get enough (which sucked because we only had two bottles).
Oh, sure! I remember that club. I got to meet some of them- and offered vasectomies on the spot. Well, not to them- they were sort of the butt of one of my jokes. My dad's from West Virginia, and I grew up in Ohio, so I felt I could make the joke. Bearcat Brewmeister (from Cincy) heard the joke, though! But their booth was so awesome- in their yellow slickers. They were right down from our club booth, so I made sure to wander around and say "Hi".
Next year it's in Minneapolis, so you might want to take a little road trip!
