Fool’s Braggot,  a medieval beer that is one half mead and one half ale, was featured at Foolproof Brewing Companys Barrel Reserve Night, December 13.  A crowd of over 100 attended the event.   RI honey was used in the preparation of this amazingly delicious and rare brew.  RIBA was on hand with literature, a model hive, samples of assorted local honey for tasting, and members to discuss beekeeping with the attendees.

Some RIBA board members took a tour of Foolproof Brewing Company in Pawtucket, RI to see and taste the results of a special brew called braggot, which used Rhode Island honey in the brewing process.
