Mead

 

Dusk settled heavily as the community brewers brought balance to their concoction – a concoction of water and honey honoring Lugh at the annual Harvest for all ages to enjoy. They bottled the sweet treat in preparation for the festivities to begin once the daily heat dipped to a comfortable level.

It was a full moon this year, making for a bright event with family and friends. This Harvest looked to be bountiful. Though disrupting Midsummer events, the frequent rain brought large and colorful fruits and vegetables.

The brewers gathered the bottles as a flash of unnaturally powerful light appeared near town center. They quickly made their way out to investigate the commotion.

…somewhen 10 lunar months later between Beltane and Litha, as the brewers gather honey in preparation for this year’s Harvest, the ripened mead cracks awake!
