Exclusive Mead (Honey Wine) Tasting and Tour

Join fellow Yale Alums for an exclusive tour and tasting at the San Francisco Mead Company. Space is limited! ~~~ Aftewards, we'll head over to Magnolia's Smokestack Restaurant for some BBQ.

Just as you've gotten used to seeing seeing hard cider served at most bars in San Francisco, we're here to introduce you to the oldest, yet newest, brew on the block: mead.

So what is Mead, you may ask.

Mead is an alcoholic beverage created by fermenting honey with water, and frequently fruits, spices, grains or hops. Mead has a long, long history, beloved by ancient Vikings, J.R.R. Tolkien, and George R.R. Martin alike. It predates the establishment of agriculture: before people were growing grain or cultivating fruit, they were robbing bees of their wild honey, and fermenting it by means of natural wild yeasts. 

The Yale Club of San Francisco is taking you to the best Meadery in town, the San Francisco Mead Company, where brewers Oron Benary and Sarah Jones (a two-time U.S. Olympic Rower, by the way) will teach you about the mead-making process and share their delicious brews. 

For you Yelp fiends out there, SF Mead Company has a perfect 5-star rating: See Here

Afterwards, our group will head over to Magnolia Brewing Company's SMOKESTACK BBQ restaurant for a linner (that's lunch and/or dinner). This part is optional, but please join if you can.

Tour & Tasting only: $5 per person (usually $10)
