In 2019, our 9th Annual Orpheus MeadFest Competition had over 300 entries from all over the world.

The 2019 MeadFest Tasting featured over 70 meads from Colorado’s best meaderies, as well as our new Homebrewer’s Roundtable. Orpheus sang a selection of pieces before the winners of the competition were announced.
