Thread: Detroit area Mead and Greet

  1. #1

    Default Detroit area Mead and Greet

    We've been talking about it for a months know and many of us said that the end of April would be a GOOD TIME to get together at Kuhnhenn's so how about Sunday April 29th around 5pm? They are not very busy on Sundays so they might let us sample some of our own meads and 5 is early enough that we could spend a couple hours getting to know one another and still have plenty of time to get back home and get some sleep for work the next day.

    Any Input from the Detroit contingent?

    Sounds good to me. I'll check and see if anyone else by me is interested.

    All are welcome! I'm not sure if my Blackberry will be fully ready, but I plan on bringing a bottle (been in the bottle for about 2 months now).

    Hopefully this will be the first of many get togethers

    I'm in and have arranged for a ride so I'm good to go and ready for many samples. My girlfriend is having some friends over Saturday night. I may have a bit of a hangover. I apologize in advance. I'll bring a bottle of blueberry mead and a couple others. Any chance we can get Kuhnhenns mead maker to come? I met him at a tour of the brewery and he pulled out samples.

    Should be a good time.

    Would this be the winning Blueberry Mead?

    I'm meeting some friends up there later this week, so I'll talk to the guys and see if something might be able to get arranged

    I think many of us are hoping this won't be a one and done type of thing and I doubt we'll all be able to make every one. Hopefully we can catch you next time.

    Well, unless someone says otherwise, I'll bring a couple of bottles along, some dry and some sweet. Worst case I can chauffer them back and to Warren, or maybe trade them or something

    I'm finding myself looking more and more towards this as the days grow closer.

    I'd love to go but already have plans in 4/29. We're having a fundraiser to support our neighborhood association. Definitely want to meet at some point though!

    I should be there, nothing odd has come up. Tall guy, wearing glasses, a black hat, and a blue and white Hawaiian shirt.

    The schedule is clear, I will be there. Shaved head with a goatee, no idea what I'll be wearing. See you there.

    Shaved head and a trimmed beard. With the way the weather has been I expect to be in a gray hoodie.

    I wish there were mazers in my area

    Hope you all find each other and have a blast! (but not get too blasted)
