Brian Pride – Experienced Beekeeper & Award Winning Mead Maker

You all may know Brian as a bit modest, but he has been making mead for some time.  He recently made a batch of award winning mead.  This was tested by the Experts at EAS and again in Massachusetts.  In both situations, Brian walked away as the overall Mead Champion.  So we are honored to have our very own member and mead extrodinair to tell us how we can make a batch of award winning mead.    The Best Mead East of the Miss. 

ALSO….
Karen Thurlow – Experienced Beekeeper, Master Gardener, Herbalist & Ross Round Champion.  She has spoken to us several times in the past.  However, Karen has a beautiful plaque to show her achievement in creating Ross Rounds.  These were examinined and scored way ahead of all the other sectional comb honey at EAS and she was rewarded with a beautiful silver plaque as the overall champion in sectional comb.  We hope she will explain how we can make sectional comb honey as well.
This should be a great meeting for everyone interested in extravagant products of the hive.  Hope to see you there.
