But, up in tiny Dallas, Wisconsin (pop. 604), the Lees, Randy and wife Ann, brew about 20 beers and two bracketts (brackett, aka "braggot", is a mead brewed with honey, malts and hops).
Which reminds me -- on Tuesday I get to taste that prickly-pear braggot the Widmers are just about to release.
We may have advanced from the Middle Ages, but you still can get a mouthful of real honey wine, hard cider and braggot in this meadery's tasting room.
