Steve Patik

Steve Patik lives in Colorado with his wife and two daughters. He found a passion for Mead over a Thanksgiving table in 2012 and year later decided to try his hand at making this amazing beverage. For over 5 years, Steve has been making mead and doing so in some unconventional, yet successful, ways. Steve rarely has a mead that is older than six months and he has won awards for mead that was only 6 weeks old.  As a successful amateur Mead maker, Steve consistently shows his talent at competitions locally and nationally by taking a place or even a Best of Show once in a while.  The meads Steve enjoys making the most are traditionals and braggots.

So, what is his secret? Steve believes in the marriage of best practices, modern techniques and top shelf ingredients.
