Owner and head brewer of Snowbank Brewing Company in Fort Collins, CO Dave Rosso did not want to stick to the standard mead recipe on Big Brew day in 2016 so he decided to try something a little different—Tej, an Ethiopian-style mead using gesho entchet. Gesho entchet are Ethiopian aroma hop stems, which when used in mead add a nice bitterness to balance out the sweetness.
If you have a little spare time to source gesho and a love for a little international adventure, this mead is sure to please!
