Great news! Today Golden Coast Mead received their State ABC Production License, clearing the final hurdle to legal mead production in our new facility. Next update will be when we start brewing the mead that you have made possible. Woo hoo!
Hello again co-creators! 3 quick things -
First, if you informed me that you did not yet receive your rewards, they are in the mail and should arrive no later than this Friday.
Second, we received a lot of responses from people who wanted to purchase some mead. While there are some legal roadblocks to selling across the country, we are able to ship to all California residents.
Bottle prices for Friends and Family is $16.50 and shipping prices for anywhere in California are:
1 bottle: $8
2 bottles: $14
3 or more bottles: $15 total
If you e-mail Joe@GoldenCoastMead.com with a bottle order I can send you a digital invoice with this price built in. I'll be back in San Diego on Friday and will be able to fill all orders placed by then. The first bottle you order will be your shoutout bottle with your personalized sticker on it.
Third, some great news on the front that is our company's growth. We were recently approached by the Whole Foods local forager and have submitted our application to be carried in 5 Whole Foods locations in the San Diego metaregion and should hear back soon. We thought that was pretty cool. None of that would have been possible without you, so thanks once again.
Good news on the mead front today that we have to share with you all! The Federal regulators approved our production license today! Woo hoo! Just one more big license to get from the state and we'll be clear to get up and producing!
