Subject: Question on mead (Have I won it? :)
Date: 1992-07-07 12:42:23 GMT

I recently posted this to a local mailing list but seeing that I too
might get the beloved MALTMILL I've got to buy my lottery tick--um--repost
this thing here for the wider audience.

I've noticed that mead, when purchased in stores or in restaurants, is a
rather expensive drink. The Boston Beer Works sells it for $3.95 a glass
(and the glasses are wine-size thingies) while a friend of mine buys
it for $90 a case.

Meanwhile I throw in some honey and yeast and spend a total of $12.50
to make what is so far 5 gallons.

Is there something more at work here than market forces in keeping
store-bought so high? Or is this a grab-your-ankles routine?
