6/2/2021 Tasting Room Update

As of today, the State of Ohio is removing all Covid-19 regulations, so we are adjusting our protocols in our tasting room.  As of now, the following is in effect:

 

  • Customers are not required to wear masks, though masks are still recommended for those who have not yet been vaccinated.

  • Staff will still be masked for your protection and comfort.

  • Social distancing is still in effect, and therefore seating is limited. We are only serving customers who are seated at a table.  We are doing this because we want to create an environment where people with different levels of comfort can still feel reasonably safe and have fun!

 

  • Because of limited seating, reservations are highly recommended, so call us at 216-716-2500 to reserve a table now!

We hope to see you soon!

6/11/21- Our newest mead, Sur Lie, will be available in our tasting room or to purchase online!  Made from Star Thistle honey, this is a dry yet complex mead.  It gets its name from the technique of aging wine on the yeast lies- sur lie aging- that is used most commonly in Chardonnay production to give the wine extra body, mouthfeel, and complexity.

6/12 and 6/13/21- We will be doing tastings and talking about meadmaking at Hale Farm and Village's Sow & Grow Pollinator Festival from 10-5  on Saturday and Sunday.  Join us for a fun day of mead tasting while learning about the importance of pollinators!

 

 

Welcome!

Mead

It starts with the finest varietal honeys. Add complementary fruits and spices. Careful craft and attention to detail reveals the complex and subtle character of the base ingredients. The end result is a balanced and sophisticated mead that speaks with the voice of the honey from which it’s made.

 

Our tasting room reflects the same dedication to fine materials and authentic craft. Historic brick and handmade hardwood furnishings create a warm and inviting atmosphere in which to taste and learn about mead. Allow our knowledgeable and personable staff to be your guide in this journey.

We are located in the Duck Island neighborhood, in the middle of Downtown, Ohio City, and Tremont, right at the nexus of Cleveland’s culinary and craft beverage scene, and a 5 minute walk to Cleveland's world-famous Westside Market.

About Mead

Mead is an alcoholic beverage made from fermented honey, often with the addition of fruits and spices.  Mead is approachable for beginners but offers complexity and refinement to the discerning palette.   If you want to know more about what mead is and what it tastes like, check out our Mead FAQ's.

Our Meads

Our philosophy of meadmaking is summed up in a simple formula "the best ingredients+

careful craft = great mead."  Always following this basic philosophy, we've created a wide range of meads.  From the dry to the sweet, the light and refreshing to the robust and hearty, still or sparkling, that attention to quality and balance sets our meads apart.  See our lineup of meads.
