What’s the latest buzz on the state’s first meadery? Wild Blossom Meadery and Winery is opening on March 3, and that includes fresh beer, mead and wine—and bees—to Beverly. The facilities include a taproom which will give the neighborhood a rare watering hole near the Dan Ryan Woods.
Wild Blossom is a new facility for Bev Art, a long-time Beverly business. They’re asking attendees to RSVP to attend the special event. They’ll have drink specials and food trucks will be on hand. For a sneak peek inside the 60-seat taproom, go over here.
It’s probably unwise to bank on this unseasonably warm winter weather, but another highlight of Wild Blossom is outdoor space where drinkers can take their mead. While March 3 may not have ideal weather to hang outdoors near the neighboring Forest Preserve, it’s something to look forward to in the future.
Mead is made from honey, which is why they’ll need bees. Besides the taproom, Wild Blossom aims to teach visitors about mead and other alcoholic beverages. Bev Art regularly host classes, including those on wine making. Check out the website for more details.
