Etta Place Unveils Adventurous Line of Session Meads

Etta Place Cidery, in the heart of Capitol Reef Country, is thrilled to introduce its latest creations: an innovative line of  session meads. These delightful libations are meticulously crafted in the spirit of Utah’s canyon country. Mead, the traditional alcoholic beverage made by fermenting honey mixed with water, is a trending category in the alcohol industry and a perfect fit to be made in the Beehive State.

What Are Session Meads?

Session meads are fun, refreshing beverages with a lower alcohol content, making them perfect for celebrations, hammock-tending, or enjoying after an exhilarating hike in nearby Capitol Reef National Park. Etta Place’s session meads strike a nuanced balance between flavor and drinkability.

The Line-up: Raspberry-Hibiscus, Lemon-Lime-Grapefruit and Pineapple-Passion Fruit Flavors

Our starting line-up of session meads includes three flavors: Raspberry-Hibiscus, Lemon-Lime-Grapefruit and Pineapple-Passion Fruit. At a moderate 6% ABV, they are neither too sweet nor too dry, making it a versatile choice for any occasion. Enjoy it chilled or as inspirations for creative cocktail recipes.

Why session meads?

Two reasons, according to owner Ann Torrence: “First in practical terms, as orchard-based producers, our capacity is scaled for a huge burst of fermentation during harvest season. Once we start bottling this year’s ciders, we open tank capacity for session mead production the rest of the year.”

“The second reason is pure fun. The honey wine base we make is a fascinating canvas for a vast palette of flavors. The only limit to our session mead offerings is our own imagination. These three flavors are only a beginning for where we want to go in this beverage category.”

Launch parties in Torrey and Salt Lake City The full line of session meads will go on tap at Etta Place Cidery on Thursday, May 2, 2024, along with a special menu of mead-forward cocktails all weekend. The following Wednesday, May 8, owners Ann Torrence and Robert Marc will be on hand to celebrate as Scion Cider Bar unveils the full line-up for the Salt Lake City market.
