Artisanal Mead Tasting
Amanti Vino – Montclair
Time: 7pm

An educational mead tasting with special guest Michael Brogaard from Dansk Mjod is taking place on May 8th at Amanti Vino. Here’s the info from their newsletter….sounds like an event not to be missed!

Amanti Vino’s “Other Fermentables” series will have its first classroom tasting of artisanal meads from Dansk Mjod A/S, hosted by the maker Michael Brogaard. This is a rare visit by Michael from his native Denmark, and a great opportunity for anyone interested in braggot and mead. Michael speaks fluent English and will lead a guided tasting of his mead and braggot, as well as Q and A.

The line-up :
1) Old Danish Braggot 10.5% – a collaboration with Orbaek Bryggeri and Dansk A/S. The 40% mead/ 60% beer blend is from an 18th century recipe.
2) GI. Dansk Mjod 19%-Mead with hops and ginger
3) Klapojster Mjod 21.5% -Mead with hops and caraway Aquavit
4) Viking Blod 19%- Mead with hops and hibuscus
5) Vikingernes Mjod 19%-Mead with hops

As usual, there will be artisanal cheeses served. Since all the meads are quite high in ABV and it’s a weeknight, pours will be 2oz or so, which will allow everyone to work the next day as well as keep the ticket price down!

Cost: $25.00
Convenient parking is available in the deck behind the shop at $1.00/hr.
