We are incredible happy to welcome Charm City Meadworks to the Crystal City Wine Shop! They have only been distributed in Northern Virginia for a little while but have all ready developed a strong following for their unique and delicious take on the oldest alcoholic beverage in history. Founded by two homebrewers that abandoned jobs in engineering and sustainability, James Boicourt and Andrew Geffken launched Baltimore City’s only meadery in early 2014. Today, they have a lineup of still meads in 500ml glass bottles and carbonated meads on draft (and in cans) with both core and seasonal products available throughout the year!
- Sweet Blossom: Charm City’s first semi-sweet offering. Sweetened with orange blossom honey, floral notes and subtle citrus abound, while still remaining light and refreshing. (Still Mead, 12% ABV)
- Strawberry Ginger: Their spring and summer seasonal is this perfect compliment to warmer weather! Each sip starts with fresh strawberries and ends with a hint of refreshingly spicy ginger. (Still Mead, 12% ABV)
- Hops: Are you a beer geek looking to get into mead? Here is your starting point! Floral and citrusy with a hint of honey at the end of this dry-hopped mead. (Draft/Carbonated, 6.9% ABV)
- Mango Comapeno: Their summer seasonal that is just a little hot and just a little sweet. A nice combination of mango sweetness and Chile Comapeño, a rare Mexican chili pepper that is imported into the USA by a couple in Baltimore. (Draft/Carbonated, 6.9% ABV)
Plus, come out and check out our selection of other mead and ciders! We have at least one very special delivery coming today …
