Mead has had a resurgence over the last five or so years. With Schramm’s leading the way, new meaderies pop up with a fair amount of regularity. Chicago has a handful of meaderies, including Second City and Wild Blossom. But now meaderies seem to be coming to more rural areas. While the Champaign-Urbana area has three breweries, there hasn’t been a meadery until now. Tree Hive recently started releasing their meads in the area from their Rantoul, Illinois home, including the Red Currant mead.
