I have to laugh, because I've outsmarted even myself. My enemy, my foe, is a human. In order to conquer the human, I have to learn to think like a human. And, whenever possible, to look like one. I've gotta get inside this guy's skin and crawl around for a few days. Who's the golfer’s ally? His friends. The harmless greenskeeper and the friendly caddy. A varmint will never quit - ever. So you have to fall back on superior intelligence and superior firepower. And that's all she wrote.
Messing with them is like zen, man. It's the reason we get up before the sun even shows its face. It's our game - a ruined fairway here, a twisted ankle there. All designed to get that silly groundskeeper into a strappy shirt at the funny farm. But the real moment - this is the good stuff, so listen close - is that one perfect dig. The one that sits hidden on the green, right next to the cup. You dig that hole juuuuuuust right, and that poor shmuck golfer never knows where his ball went.
It takes guts to dig that hole. Great big gobs of greasy, grimy gopher guts. A varmint needs a good drink if he wants to play for keeps, and this is the one. We start with Tallow honey, of course, the Nektar of the gods. Add in a slice of Four Seasons lemon juice. We give the drink some loft with South Indian black tea, off the luckiest tea trees. Tell you what, my fellow varmint: with this drink cooling our furry brows, those stupid caddies in their dumb shack won't know what hit 'em.
Cinderella story. Outta nowhere. A former meadmaker, now, about to become the Mazer champion. It looks like a mirac... It's in the hole! It's in the hole!!!!

After the epic release of our critically acclaimed Imperial Funky Monky, we followed up with a "small" version that is aptly named, Dwarf Invasion. The name was partly inspired by the song of the same name by the Common Denominators, an alter-ego of the band Reggie and the Full Effect. But the story was inspired by a mock alternative ending of the history of Detroit. In Detroit, there is a legend of the Detroit Dwarf, or as he's known in French, Le Nain Rouge. The dwarf would appear randomly throughout Detroit history and is thought to be a bad omen. But being the twisted minded people we are, we thought about how the story might be told from the perspective of the dwarf. And what if there wasn't just this lone dwarf, but thousands of them living in the area surrounding what we now know of as Detroit. What if the dwarfs had attacked?
The mead is inspired by a cherry lambic. We use Michigan wildflower honey as the base for this mead, and add tart Michigan Balaton cherry juice and then dry hop it with Styrian Golding hops. The taste is sweet, tart, acidic, with a mild bitterness from the hops. The aroma is pure heaven.

Many years ago, a mysterious book was discovered by a group of friends in a Ferndale, MI basement. A translation of its contents revealed the recipe for an ancient beverage using mango juice, honey, and black pepper. What they didn't realize was that creating the beverage had dire consequences. Stricken by fear after its compleation, the friends tried to contain the terrifying forces into this very bottle. Once opened, however, no one can say for sure if it can be conquered. Defend your soul or join us...
