(Festus) Four Brothers Mead in Festus is hoping to continue to grow their operation. Mead is a wine made from honey as opposed to grapes and has a higher alcohol by volume compared to normal wines. Daniel Luck is one of the four owners of the local business whom all have a past military background. He gave a little background on how and why they got started.

Luck says they currently have five different styles of mead which are all named from Norse Mythology.

Four Brothers Mead currently sells bottles at Main & Mill Brewing Company, the Brick Bistro and Brew both on Festus Main Street, and Rumors on Ice in Crystal City. You can also order bottles online at four brothers mead dot com. Four Brothers Mead is planning to open a taproom at their Festus Main Street location by the end of the year or early next year.
