•Why not just call it "Meaddale"? Ferndale's B. Nektar Meadery recently expanded into a second production facility with a tasting room and Schramm's Mead – owned by world-renowned mead-man Ken Schramm – is set to open later this spring. In the meantime, get your mead fix at B. Nektar's first-ever Spring Mead Fest on Saturday, 4/20 at 1505 Jarvis from noon to 6 p.m. There will be food from Treat Dreams, Green Zebra, Detroit BBQ Co. and Dee's Hot Dog Stand. Limited-release meads will be on draft and they'll also release their new bourbon barrel-aged mead, Episode 13 – B. Nektar Strikes Back.
