PALM HARBOR - Unless you’re a history buff and have studied the drinking habits of Robin Hood and his merry men or the Nordic Vikings, there’s a good chance you’ve never heard of mead.

But that’s something Bob Lasseter hopes to change.

Lasseter, a former corporate accountant now in his late 60s, operates the Black Fox Meadery at 1688 Alt. U.S. 19 in Palm Harbor. It is the only such business in Florida, which puts the former newspaper publisher in a pretty good position to grow quickly.

“Palm Harbor Blvd. (U.S> Alt. 19) is a convenient and central location for our customers,” said Patriot Bank president and CEO David Key. “With our Patriot Bank-branded building, the improved visibility and access will likely bring new customers who appreciate the personalized service from a community-based bank.”

PALM HARBOR - It all started about three years ago during a birthday celebration.

That’s when Jeff Domb, Sean Greelish and Sam Price were sipping on a few ones at the Palm Harbor House of Beer when Price said he had $100,000 he wanted to sink into a brewery operation if Domb and Greelish would be interested in joining.

The three long-time friends, who were also veteran home-brewing hobbyists, agreed it was a great idea. So after jumping through a few hoops, the Stilt House Brewery and craft beer taproom opened Nov. 29 at 625 Alt. U.S. 19 in Palm Harbor.
