A Note on This Beer
We are witnessing the beginning of a New Age in Craft — an unstoppable movement that’s slowly covering the land in delicious, thick n’ sweet juice!
It’s a movement Wine Enthusiast Magazine has aptly dubbed the American Mead Renaissance.
Mead is honey wine and a style that is truly ancient. But many of today’s innovative meaderies are using the same creative adjuncts and barrel-aging techniques that the most cutting-edge breweries are employing right now.
And among those who stand at the forefront of this resurgence is Arizona’s Superstition — one of the Top 10 Meaderies in the World on Untappd!
Meads may seem far off from the beer that we’re used to, but it’s potent elixirs like Superstition’s Velvet Stave that show us how serious the renaissance is.
With the vinous character of red wine and the full-bodied sweetness of the 13% ABV honey-backed brew, Velvet Stave positively oozes with a decadence. It’s an experience unlike any beer you or your friends have ever had.
Each sip of the nectar consists of 1 part Cabernet Pyment (essentially, a grape-infused Mead) melded with 2 parts Oak-Aged Mead, to prevent the flavors of sweet berry juice from being uber-cloying. Then, the award-winning brewers elevate the ancient-style mix to 21st Century standards by adding bittersweet cacao nibs, ripe dates, and Belgian dark candi syrup.
If you need a gateway drink to this style-on-the-rise, look no further than Velvet Stave. By scoring a bottle of this 4.27 UT-rated sipper, you’ll beat all your buds to the frontlines of the New Age Mead Movement!
