SUDS  Episode – Another price point discussion on high dollar and high octane mead from Dansk Mjød and Redstone.  A blind tasting discussion where we only know the price per oz. A nice mix of experience at the table from novice to expert. Shopping by price is the 2nd most important factor in a buying decision. Cosplay with your favorite Viking outfit is encouraged while listening to this episode. We taste and determine if the price/oz IS WORTH IT or NOT WORTH IT.
