Reservations recommended to get a place for a tasting (call 216-716-2500), or purchase online and have it shipped to your door.
August 1st- Join us for National Mead Day! We'll be releasing a new mead- Cranberry Blossom Traditional. This well balanced traditional mead is made from cranberry blossom honey, which is fruity and floral! Reservations recommended- call ahead (216) 716-2500. See all of our meads.
July 20th- Our summer seasonal, Strawberry Basil Mead, is now available in our tasting room or for purchase online! See all of our meads.
Starting on June 2nd we will be reopening our tasting room for on site tastings and mead by the glass. 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:
If you are experiencing any of the symptoms of Covid-19, please come to see us another time!
Because of social distancing, we can only serve customers who are seated at one of our tables or the counter. There is no standing room service for the time being, nor do we have room to accommodate customers waiting for seating to become available.
Seating is limited, so please call ahead for reservations! You can reach us during open hours at (216) 716-2500.
If possible, we will try to accommodate appointments outside our normal hours, especially for customers who are seniors or immune-compromised.
We respectfully request that customers wear a mask when they are not tasting- i.e. entering/exiting/picking up to-go orders/going to restrooms.
Please be respectful of the personal space of others! We all have varying levels of comfort in a challenging and confusing time. We are dedicated to making sure that everyone feels as comfortable as possible during the time they spend with us.
Our new hours (starting June 2nd)

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.
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 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.
