    The AMMA is pleased to announce the results of the first-ever National Mead Maker of the Year competition!

    The purpose of this competition is not only to help spur even more participation in mead competitions, but to also motivate higher standards of mead making practices from amateur mead makers around the country.

    Congrats Ryan! You may be disapointed in where you ended up, but you're in pretty lofty company and it shows that you indeed do know what you are talking about! :-)
