Starting a small business is always a challenge. Starting a meadery? Yeah, that’s not easy either. Just ask Michael Fairbrother
“I talk to people about mead, and they go, ‘What kind of meat do you make?’ I’m like, ‘No, I don’t make meat. I make mead.’ And they don’t understand what that is.”
In 2010, Fairbrother opened Moonlight Meadery in Londonderry, NH.
He’s more than happy to explain that mead is a wine made from honey, not grapes. And like traditional wine, you can’t rush it.
