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.
