Boulder Colorado Redstone Meadery Canned!

Redstone Meadery in Boulder, Colorado is moving into a new chapter in the brewing community.

The honey wine-making outfit has always leaned more towards the craft brewery concept rather than a winery in the mind of founder, David Myers.

While independent, they do seem to have a healthy connection with the local Boulder craft brew people.

Craft brew generally can be produced in as little as two weeks, and the shortest production schedule for Redstone mead is something more along the lines of a minimum production schedule of 2-1/2 months to produce their nectar.

Redstone’s Mountain Honey Wine can take from six to nine months, for comparison.

Last year, Boulder’s Redstone Brewery saw a healthy 27 percent growth, and consequently is taking a step that is considered fairly common among its brethren in the craft brew world — it started canning its mead.

The overall industry for mead seems to be booming, and consequently putting the mead into cans gives Redstone an opportunity to get their product out to consumers more readily.

Putting its product into more hands via canning didn’t come without some complications though. As the maker of honey wines, Redstone is required to conform to federal packaging standards. As a result, it’s importing cans from England in order to comply with the required use of the 16.9-ounce (500 milliliter) metal cans which aren’t available in the US.

Colorado is home to several dedicated meaderies including Meadovina in Niwot, just northwest of Boulder, near Gunbarrel; and I’ve heard two or three more are in the works.

If you’re outside of Colorado, you may find the Redstone canned product in your local store if you’re lucky as there are a few markets where it’s available in some test markets. Otherwise, many retailers are selling canned Redstone mead around our state, so if you’re not here, ou can pick some up on your next visit!
