2012 was another good year for local alcohol production, with new spirits, beers, wines and meads all being added to the lineup. Only one beverage of choice can stand out as number one, and this year our readers picked Brothers Drake Apple Pie Mead.

This mead has been described as “dessert in a glass” with its super sweet profile made from Ohio apples, local wildflower honey, and a blend of nutmeg, cinnamon and clove. Perfect for holiday parties, and perfect for summer picnics.
