December 2nd- It's the fourth anniversary of day we opened our doors to you, the mead drinking public!  To celebrate we're releasing a special mead, Pecan Pie!  This dessert mead is made from a blend of raw and caramelized cranberry blossom honey.  The cranberry blossom honey has fruity and floral notes, but caramelizing a portion of it creates richer toffee flavors.  The pecans give the mead a rich, nutty savoriness.  Available in our tasting room or OrderOnl

November 27th- We will be open special hours for Black Friday, Noon-9:00, for all your mead shopping and gift getting needs!

November 7th- Our holiday seasonal mead, Winter Warmer, is back!  Fruity and floral cranberry blossom honey meets warming holiday spices in this semi-sweet and balanced mead.  Come to our tasting room and get a sample, or a glass (reservations recommended)!  Or order Winter Warmer and all of our other meads from our online shop!

Our tasting room is currently open for tastings and mead by the glass, and bottles to go.  We are committed to creating the safest possible, yet still enjoyable, tasting experience that we can provide for you!  We have rearranged and altered the layout of our tasting room, implemented the most stringent possible sanitation procedures, and are wearing masks and screening our staff for your safety!  But we need your help to make it work!  Please bear in mind the following things:

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.
