Moonlight Meadery, founded by Michael Fairbrother in Londonderry, NH, is on a mission to bring ultra premium meads to the market place. He says, “It's the oldest fermented beverage, but the least known. Everyone knows beer and wine, but mention mead and watch the blank looks. However once they try one of our special meads, they usually start to smile and ask, "Why haven't I ever tried this before?"
