[California] Phantom Ales’ Cranberry Pomegranate Mead, Our Beer of the Week!

By Robert Flores

Before beer, wine, and bourbon came mead. It’s the OG of alcoholic beverages. Made with honey, water and yeast, the term “honeymoon” allegedly came from the tradition of drinking mead for the first month of marriage to encourage fertility—BOING!

Phantom Ale, the latest addition to Anaheim’s growing roster of micro-breweries, brews some fine craft beers, tasty and potent meads and and a good batch of ciders. But they’re not greedy about getting all your business: they host a craft beer supply store with all the supplies you need to brew your own suds, and offer classes and weekly home brew wars where you compete with other hopheads for the title of best bathtub brew—BOOM!

…The cider I had was Passion Fruit and Mango Tea 6.9% ABV with flavors that popped. But those meads! Three on tap right now: Sour Cherry, Peach Daiquiri and my favorite, Cranberry Pomegranate! With a 12%ABV and refreshing, tangy, you’ll feel like King Arthur and pull out your Excalibur.
