Kade and Levi Bilton Mead Feature Photos (4 of 14)

I’m contributing to a small pilot website featuring hobbies that Edmontonians practice. This week, the Nook published my long read about two brothers brewing mead in their kitchen.

When university students Levi and Kade Bilton felt the woes of summer boredom creeping up on them, they decided to look beyond the liquor store to get a buzz.

Levi, 25, and Kade, 20, grew up in Innisfail, Alta. before moving to Edmonton for school. Now Levi studies law at the University of Alberta while his little brother Kade studies engineering on the same campus.
