May the Mead Flow

Welcome to the world of competitive mead making, and in this world The Mazer Cup International is THE event of the year. Mead makers, both professional and homebrewers alike, submit their brews to the MCI every year to be judged.

There are wine competitions all over, and many accept mead, but there are not many mead competitions, and few who accept amateur mead entries. If you have any interest in brewing the Mazers Cup is a great contest to wet your whistle on.

What is The Mazer Cup

The Mazer Cup is an international mead making competition. You can enter if you are a professional meadery or if you are just a home brewer (they have separate entries so homebrewers aren't facing off against meaderies).

How to Enter

Simply go to http://www.mazercup.com/, fill out the entry form and mail in your entry.

Make sure you specify if you are entering the professional or the amateur contest and that you enter your mead in the right category.

      Doubt 3 years ago

      What a lovely gal! She shluod become a member of Slow Food! She is so well spoken and I completely enjoyed listening to her this morning. Who would initially think about the seeds of various fruits being a problem for the equipment but that is so in-you-face logical! Thank goodness you introduced me to their mead which I totally enjoy! I wished I could say the same for their other wines. I so want to support this woman and all she does not only because she is local, but because it is clear she works very hard, is so knowledgeable, and we are like minded. I have tasted every one they had up until the end of last year and love to use the Saskatoon in cooking but I could not palate one of them. Not one. I know I am not alone, either. But clearly, people are buying them like crazy and I am happy the company is doing well. I would just like to enjoy their produce. I was excited to see the other fruit and plants they have . like the Buckthorn. I grew one a few years ago before Vanja pulled it out. :) :( ANd just yesterday I found a bag of frozen Buckthorn berries in the Italian Centre Shop South Side (they had the Blue Bottled Sparkling Water, too) and bought them to see what I can do with them. (They were 8 dollars for a kilo. which I considered a fair price for a new learning experience.):)Valerie
