Orpheus MeadFest 2020


It took us a while to sort through all the myriad regulations and options. The result? We’ve gone virtual! Instead of a marathon of mead judging, our judges will be meeting virtually to judge our entries. The Best of Show rounds will be live judging sessions.

Here’s what you need to know:

The competition entry early registration period opens on Monday, September 28th.

Entries will be accepted from Monday, October 12th-Sunday, November 15th. All entries must be received at one of our drop-off/ship-to locations by the end of business on Sunday, November 15th.

The Virtual Judging Period is from Nov. 22–Dec. 5th. All winners will be announced shortly after the conclusion of the Best of Show rounds on Dec. 5th.

Here’s what you need to do: 

Create your ReggieBeer account, if needed, and go to your competition division:

Plan your entries now! Use the early registration period to register your entries and finalize your entries. ReggieBeer allows you to edit and change your entries up until the entry deadline of Sunday, Nov. 15th.

The gala public MeadFest tasting is tentatively scheduled for Spring of 2021, COVID-19 guidelines permitting. We promise to provide more information as soon as we are able so that you may add it to your calendars.
