The mead is inspired by a cherry lambic. We use Michigan wildflower honey as the base for this mead, and add tart Michigan Balaton cherry juice and then dry hop it with Styrian Golding hops. The taste is sweet, tart, acidic, with a mild bitterness from the hops. The aroma is pure heaven.

Approx 6% ABV

After the epic release of our critically acclaimed Imperial Funky Monky, we followed up with a ”small” version that is aptly named, Dwarf Invasion. The name was partly inspired by the song of the same name by the Common Denominators, an alter-ego of the band Reggie and the Full Effect. But the story was inspired by a mock alternative ending of the history of Detroit. In Detroit, there is a legend of the Detroit Dwarf, or as he’s known in French, Le Nain Rouge. The dwarf would appear randomly throughout Detroit history and is thought to be a bad omen. But being the twisted minded people we are, we thought about how the story might be told from the perspective of the dwarf. And what if there wasn’t just this lone dwarf, but thousands of them living in the area surrounding what we now know of as Detroit. What if the dwarfs had attacked?

B. Nektar Meadery was founded in 2006 by Brad and Kerri Dahlhofer, with the help of their good friend Paul Zimmerman. Brad has been an avid homebrewer since 1998, making beers, meads, ciders and wine for his own enjoyment. When Brad and Kerri got married in 2005, he made a mead to toast with at their wedding and received great reviews from the guests. Jokingly, he said that he’d someday open a meadery. Paul, a long-time friend and fellow homebrewer, soon began making meads along with Brad in the Dahlhofers basement. Their meads quickly began winning awards at homebrewing competitions. In the summer of 2006, Kerri was laid-off from her job. While sipping a glass of vanilla cinnamon mead made by Brad, she thought, why not try to sell this? It was then that the three decided to take their mead making to the next level. In the spring of 2008, Brad too fell victim to layoffs, and the three worked night and day to prepare for their opening. After nearly two years since its inception, B. Nektar finally opened its doors on August 2, 2008 (National Mead Day). Since their opening, B. Nektar has been featured in the media by big names such as Hour Magazine (Detroit), The Detroit News, Metro Times, Channel 4 News, WJR Radio, and many others.
