VIDEO: Making mead in Alajuela
What’s the buzz on Costa Rica Meadery? After two years, the tiny operation is doing pretty well: It just won a silver medal at Mazer Cup International, a prestigious mead competition based in Broomfield, Colorado. People are noticing its labels in gastropubs like Stiefel and El Gaff. And an obscure drink that was once unknown in Costa Rica now graces shelves in select tiendas across the Central Valley.
We recently visited its humble headquarters in Alajuela to meet the meadery’s owners, Michael Lindeman and Alejandra Arraya. Learn how they make their sweet-tasting beverage – and care for their thousands of honeybees.
