Well. Not technically a recent brew but opened a 20 year old bottle of blueberry mead to celebrate Inauguration Day. It was fantastic.

That's cool.  Exciting to open a bottle that old.  Nice work.  Looks nice.

Actually, all credit goes to my wife. She has been a mead maker since the nineties and this is her work, several years before I was with her.

Fantastic.  A brewer and a meadmaker in the same house?  You guys are soooo prepared for an extended isolation.  :D

So they are! I think I remember from when I put it up a few years ago it was called travertine or travertine marble. I like it.
Great looking beer. I celebrated a bit last night and am abstaining today.

Your magazine cover quality pics are amazing.
Are you using a phone camera ?

Another shot of my English Porter in a neat little 10 oz glass I picked up in a thrift store some time ago.
