A Note on This Beer
In Norse mythology, there is a magical Mead that transforms any drinker into the wisest of scholars. And in Brazilian folklore, the gods placed beehives high in the jungle canopy so humans had to exercise for their honey.
While I can’t promise you that drinking today’s Bilburana Mead will turn you into an academic or an athlete, it is curious that Garagiste concocted a honey-soaked fusion of flavors from Scandinavia AND Brazil. Are they creating a fanbase of superhumans?
Perhaps it’s all coincidence — these brewers love to combine traditional European fruit Mead with new-world flavors, and they do exactly that in today’s jammy exploration:
- It’s packed with Scandanavian Bilberries — the sweeter, tangier cousin of American blueberries.
- The brewers use organic Brazilian honey that oozes with floral notes and citrus.
- They ferment all this sweet goodness in Brazilian Amburana wood for hints of earthy spice.
Plus, a 12% ABV makes this smooth and rich Nordic-Latin combo a true super brew — whether or not it has any actual mythical powers!
