Prairie Rose Meadery Kickstarter

PrairieRoseMeaderyMead is a honey wine but it is so much more.  Its origins go back thousand and thousands of years.  The ancient Greeks called mead, Ambrosia, or Nectar. It was believed to be the drink of the gods.  In Norse mythology a draught of mead, delivered by the beautiful divine maidens, was the reward for warriors that reached Valhalla.

Prairie Rose Meadery is coming to Fargo in the Summer of 2015 and will be brewing their award winning meads.  They would like your help with finishing up a couple areas through some Kickstarter fundrasing – Prairie Rose Meadery Kickstarter.  This Kickstarter will run through March 11th.

PrairieRoseTanksOur meadery is almost ready to open. We have all of our tanks, pumps, filters, honey and much more, but we have two areas that still need attention, our tasting room and bottling. We have done our best to furnish the tasting room but we are still in need of good tables and mead racks and will use donated funds to purchase these for the tasting room.  We also plan to use some of the funding to purchase a bottle corker for the production area.  Working hard on something we love as much as mead is truly rewarding but long term corking bottles by hand will be a challenge that impacts operations and everyone involved with the meadery. Getting this meadery going has truly been a labor of love so far and we are so excited to start making our mead and sharing it with all of you.

Rewards for the Kickstarter range from a customized cork screw, a personal tour of the meadery, logo t-shirts, and a set of meadery glasses to a Mead Chalice that will stay at the meadery for your personal use, helping make a batch or mead, designing the recipe of a mead and even naming the mixing or fermentation tanks.

North Dakota produces more honey than any other state so it is fitting to take that local project and transform it to the nectar of the gods. You can help by donating to their Kickstarter.

About Dean

I drank my share of pale lagers back in college in the 80's but I always wanted to try more, often drinking the 'dark' versions of beer as that was the only interesting thing on tap. I got into homebrewing in the early 90's meeting a lot of great people and then really started learning about beer and how to judge it. Then into the 00's I started branching out with beer and started to deal with beer education and paring beer with food which I did with some restaurants, even beating out wine in a beer vs. wine dinner. I don't try and push beer on people but if they ask questions and really want to listen, I can talk for hours about the subject. Now we come to today, and beer scene in the Fargo / Moorhead area and North Dakota is starting to boom. FMBeer was created with the help of MNBeer.com so people in the F/M area have a single place where they can find out more about good beer, from a calendar of events to lists of local breweries and bars. FMBeer is also a place to learn more about craft beer for those just branching out and a resource to come back to.
