Prescott brewery known for its mead ranked among best in the world
PHOENIX — A brewery in Prescott is among the best in the world, according to a beer rating website.
The ranking was based on five metrics that placed emphasis on reviews from the past year and top-performing beers.
The brewery near Montezuma and Gurley streets is known for its production of mead, an alcoholic drink made by fermenting honey with water and flavorful ingredients.
Its top-rated drink on RateBeer is its Straw Berry White mead, which is made with strawberry juice and white chocolate and scored a 4.35 out of 5.
“Pours a clear copper sort of color. Liquid strawberry jam with some vanilla, cream and sweet honey. Actually kind of reminds me of a strawberry cheesecake,” said one RateBeer review.
The brewery offers a long list of meads and ciders, available at $2-6 for a 1-ounce taste, or $24 for a flight of 12 samples.
The top three breweries in the ranking were Hill Farmstead Brewery in Greensboro, Vermont; Russian River Brewing in Santa Rosa, California; and Trillium Brewing Company in Boston.
