EGG HARBOR (NBC 26) — Hatch Distilling Co. has partnered with Mixed Meadia, Egg Harbor's first Meadery.

Mead is wine made from honey and is thought to be the world's first fermented beverage. Mixed Meadia focuses on using local ingredients and perfecting the artful blending of mead, ciders and wines.

The name "Mixed Meadia" was inspired by its founder's belief in the art of the blend. A good blend allows them to take each individual ferment, use their favorite aspects, and layer them together to complement each other to achieve the perfect blend.

There are currently three meads available for tasting and purchase. A dry "brut" sparkling mead, a sweeter "sec" sparkling mead, and a cyser which is a blend of honey, apples and cherries.

In the future, the company plans to add ciders and wines to their menu and are currently working on getting meads and ciders into cans by the end of summer to make it easier to enjoy on the go.

Mixed Meadia is now open for tastings from noon to 6:00 p.m. at 7740 WI-42, Egg Harbor, WI 54209.
