I didn't realize the Brewer's Association managed this forum. :)

Ha! If that were the case, they'd count it. In order to keep Boston Beer in the fold, they recently decided that any alcoholic beverages that come from a craft brewing company (cider, hard iced tea, hard seltzer, etc) is technically beer to them. Shitscrazyman.

If you are looking for some Black Labs mead (and honestly, who wouldn't be, with the stuff they come up with), they are located in Olathe, and have a few bottle shops listed here:

Their fb is here: https://www.facebook.com/blacklabsmead/

There is also the Pirtle Meadery in Weston, which is far more of a traditional meadery by comparison:

As far as what is available from out of the area, I don't think there is a ton. I know that I have seen some mead from Redstone Meadery on the MO side and that their stuff has gotten really good reviews on RateBeer for a long time now.

Any bottle shop folks want to weigh in on this?

It's a positive change. I was at a National Homebrew Conference and Moonlight Meadery was not allowed to pour at pro night. I was told because their flagship product was not made with barley and the decision was made by Sam Calagione the then president of the Brewer's Association.

I have not been able to enjoy a Dogfish Head beer since.
