Cider/mead tasting in early 2018?

I thought the one we did in December 2016 went really well.

We had a lot of time to plan that one out so I don’t want to rush suggesting doing one again before the end of the year.

How about we tentatively plan on having a cider/mead tasting in the DC area sometime in early 2018? Maybe sometime after Valentine’s Day, weather permitting?

I will be heading back to Jackson Hole, probably on Jan. 12. Would be interested in a tasting before then. I have a couple ice ciders to add to the mix.

Damn, I miss all the good tastings and only can be around for the cider tastings… only so many times I can write “tastes like apples” on a rating… hahaha. Anyway, I’m down. I’m out dec 22 till jan 1st or so but otherwise good.

I have a strong feeling that these will be the only “good” days that early in January.

January 5-7

I’ll have to check with the wife to make sure I haven’t forgotten about anything that might be going on that weekend.

I can block out those days on my calendar if that works for others.


I won’t be able to make January 5-6 work but could do the 7th.

How does that 7th sound to everyone?

I got the word from the wife that we don’t have anything going on that weekend.

Here’s the spreadsheet so we can start listing these things out:

Spreadsheet seems to be view only.


BTW my girlfriend brought me back like 12 unentered Panamanian craft beers… Who ready to party???

I’m totally down.

Josh, Bring 'em on! (Unless they are all insipid pale lagers.)

Well i just entered them and it looks like I shockingly found some of them were costa rican beers passing off as Panamanian. The intrigue deepens.

I think I can make this, if that’s cool. And I work near a meadery.

The more the merrier! Even if you don’t have any cider/mead/cyser/sake to contribute.

In on 7th. And my gluten-free PITA gf can imbibe.
