On October 25th 2013, KAXE Northern Community Radio held a celebration honoring John Latimer’s 30 years of work presenting the Phenology Show, a fascinating look at the changing seasons, wildlife and climate in northern Minnesota. John’s dedication brought out the best of our brewing efforts as well. The Boreal Brewers, Town Hall Brewpub and Fulton Brewing teamed up to present a solid lineup of beers, ciders and soda for the event celebrants to sample during the evening.

In Babylon over 4000 years ago, it was customary for the bride's father to supply his new son-in-law with all the mead he could drink. As mead is a honey beer and their calendar was lunar based, this period was called the 'honey month' - or what we know today as the 'honeymoon'. In fact, Babylonians believed if the groom drank mead for an entire month, it enhanced the chances of his wife bearing a male heir.
