If you're over IPAs and porters bore you, you may want to dabble in mead. And you'll have a chance to do as much at the seventh annual Texas Mead Fest on Saturday, October 27 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Held yearly in Seguin's Town Square, the Texas Mead Fest celebrates the versatile "alcoholic beverage made by fermenting honey with water along with various fruits, hops, spices or grains." This year's meaderies will be Blessed Bee Winery, Dancing Bee Winery, Enchanted Manor, Meridian Hive, Mystic Oak, Rohan Meadery and Texas Mead Works.

The festival also serves as the host of the Texas Mead Cup​, a professional and homemade mead competition, which drew in more than 170 entries in 2017 from across 18 states.

​Tickets can be purchased for $15 ​in advance and $20 at the door and include eight tasting tickets as well as a souvenir wine glass.
