Charlie Cole from the Blue Cat Brewing Co brought in a bottle of “mead” from Unpossible Mead Inc out of Dwight Il and it was delicious.  I asked him what a mead is exactly, and he told me it was basically a honey wine.

There’s a bit of a kinship between mead makers and craft brewers due to the fact that you get to experiment and come up with different flavor combinations.  There’s an art to both of these beverages.

Unpossible will be one of the great places serving up some samples on our QC Beer Battle on the Bell happening May 21st, so you’ll have a chance to try it.

Or you can head to Blue Cat where they serve it right now!

How Would You Rate Your First Beer Back in the Day?

We asked the Quad Cities what their first beer was. Then we got on BeerAdvocate.com to see check out some reviews. Here are the best and some of the worst ones I found...

What The Quad Cities Did For Fun in the 90's

Many times over the years, I'll be talking with friends about years gone by and I'll say "take me back".

Every generation goes through this, I assume. Looking back at a more simple time where responsibilities haven't set in and life seems fun. Opportunities are endless.

Let's go back to the 1990's to Wacky Waters, 50 Cent Beer night and revisit Mallards Mania!
